DeShaun Grissom,22, is charged with armed robbery, auto theft, and kidnapping. A Vicksburg judge set his bond at $100,000 Thursday morning.

Police say Grissom robbed an employee at gunpoint Wednesday morning at the Halford Firm. It's an accounting firm located on Mission 66. Grissom allegedly showed up at the front door with a lady's wig, sunglasses, and a bandana covering his face. He tied up the employee while he took off with cash, jewelry, and the victim's SUV.

Police say Grissom abandoned the SUV and then ran to a relative's house on Prospect Street to hide. When police located him, Grissom tried to fend off officers with three pitbulls. Police tased Grissom and took him into custody.

He's currently in jail at Warren County.
