Meridian Police Department working armed robbery and arrest

MERIDIAN —    Meridian Police Department authorities are working a report of an armed robbery and with the assistance of an alert resident, made an arrest in a burglary call over the weekend.

    MPD Capt. Dean Harper, commander of the department's Criminal Investigation Division, said on Friday MPD patrol officers responded to a report of a possible burglary in progress at a home located in the 2800 block of 32nd Avenue. When officers arrived, they took one suspect into custody immediately and a short time later, working off a description provided to them, officers engaged in a short foot pursuit that ended in the apprehension of a second suspect. A third suspect was captured later after another foot chase.

    Harper said the three suspects, Jamarcus L. Glenn, and Alex J. Brooks, both 19, and 18-year-old Charlquez X. Mercer, all of Meridian, have been charged with residential burglary. Harper said bonds were set at $15,000 for each of the three suspects. Harper said all the property reported stolen was returned to the homeowner.

    Saturday night, Harper said officers and detectives were called to a local business to a report of an armed robbery.

    Harper said at about 8:30 p.m. a lone black with his face covered entered the 19th Street Liquor Store and robbed the clerk at gunpoint.

    Harper said the clerk told detectives the suspect ran from the business with the cash register but dropped it after a short distance. The cash register was recovered by officers. The clerk was unharmed.
