The Andalusia Police Department has arrested a suspect on a robbery charge after allegedly stealing a gun.

Kemen Jesstin Cross

Kemen Jesstin Cross, 24, has been charged with robbery first and is being held on a $150,000 bond.

Andalusia Police Chief Paul Hudson said an individual was approached while sitting in a vehicle in a parking lot where locals were congregated. He was asked about a gun in his car.

The man who would become a victim unloaded his gun and handed it to a man later identified as Cross.

Cross took the gun and turned to walk away. When the victim asked for his gun back, Cross allegedly turned and pointed a different gun at him.

Cross is being held in the Covington County Jail on a $150,000 bond.
