PICAYUNE, Miss. (WLOX) - The Picayune Police Department is looking for help finding a bank robbery suspect.

The robbery took place at the First National Bank of Picayune at 721 Cooper Road. On Monday afternoon, July 19, at approximately 3:32 pm, the police department dispatched officers to the bank about a hold-up.
