ST. MARTIN, Miss. (WLOX) - A pair of teenage cousins has been charged with armed robbery after what sheriff’s investigators say was an inside job.

On the night of July 13, Malik Alfred Toliver, 18, of Biloxi, allegedly had a weapon and robbed two store clerks as they were leaving Murphy gas station on Washington Avenue. One of these clerks was Toliver’s cousin Kendrick Thompson, 19, of Gulfport, who helped set up the robbery, according to Sheriff Mike Ezell.

Toliver allegedly took the money drawers and then ran off across the street. This security footage shows the suspect, dressed in all-black clothing and wearing purple latex gloves.
