Lauderdale County sheriff's deputies are investigating a Monday afternoon armed robbery. It happened around 12:30 p.m. at Null's Food Mart on Highway 145 south of Meridian.

After a vehicle description was given to authorities, the Clarke County Sheriff's Department made a traffic stop and took two individuals into custody, just north of Quitman.

"Since that time, our investigators have gone down and secured the vehicle. Those two suspects have been brought back to Lauderdale County," said Maj. Ward Calhoun.

Darrius Brown, 29, has been charged with armed robbery and felony possession of a firearm. The second person in the vehicle when it was stopped was questioned, but not immediately charged.
