Jackson County deputies arrested two people after a pursuit following an armed robbery in the Big Point community Saturday night.
Xavier Spivery, 27, of Pascagoula, and 30-year old Faith Pritchett, of Mobile, are currently jailed on armed robbery charges.
Sheriff Mike Ezell says they allegedly held up the Dollar General store around 8 Saturday night. Responding deputies spotted their car at a red light on Highway 613. When the light changed, the sheriff says Spivery took off at a high speed.
The pursuit continued until reaching Highway 63 and into the Moss Point city limits. That’s where Spivery got out of the car and ran into the woods, while Pritchett stayed in the car.
With the help of a K-9 and Moss Point Police, deputies found Spivery and arrested him. Both suspects were taken to the Adult Detention Center where they are held without bond, pending an initial hearing.
