BRANDON, Miss. (CNN/WLBT) -- A Mississippi man is in jail after a failed robbery attempt, and he has his mother to thank.
The 22-year-old suspect's mom interrupted the crime by snatching her son's gun away, and the entire incident was caught on video.
It was around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday when Roy Mitchell entered D's One Stop Convenience Store on Highway 80 in Brandon. Mitchell quickly grabbed some Nacho Cheese Doritos, and throws them on the county. He then hands the clerk $2 to pay for his snack but then things change dramatically.
As she goes to get his change, he pulls a out a gun. He then points it directly at the clerk and demands all the money in the cash drawer. The cashier doesn't move as if in shock. Then... Call it "maternal intervention."
Mitchell's mother walks up, grabs the gun and orders him out of the store. He obeys, leaving with no cash... But he does get his Doritos.
