Waveland Police have made another arrest in connection to the armed robbery of a popular seafood vendor.

Authorities arrested Christan Ryza, 18, on Friday for allegedly robbing Ly Le, also known as The Shrimp Lady, at gun point at the corner of Highway 90 and McLaurin Street.

Allen said two men who witnessed the robbery chased Ryza down and held him until police could arrive. Ryza is charged with armed robbery.

Police tell us the gun used in the robbery and the cash taken from Le were recovered, and she was not injured.

Allen said Ryza and Rolfe, both from Colorado, are being held at the Hancock County Jail on bonds of $250,000. Both men are facing felony charges in Colorado.
