JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Bond has been set for the couple accused of holding up a St. Martin business over the weekend. Erin Elizabeth Diaz, 23, and Clinton Buchanan, 33, are charged with armed robbery. A Jackson County judge set their bonds at $15,000 each Wednesday morning.

The couple allegedly robbed Dino’s Gift Shop on Washington Ave. on Saturday.

Sheriff Mike Ezell said Diaz is the ex-wife of the business owner. She allegedly stabbed the man when he tried to stop her from taking cash out of the register.

Diaz and Buchanan were arrested Monday after a tip led U.S. Marshals to Gulfport where the couple was found hiding out in the woods behind the Flying J truck stop.
