Police arrest burglary suspect, look for another

MERIDIAN —     Meridian Police Department officers were able to catch one person suspected of committing a burglary Monday and are looking for another person in an unrelated commercial burglary case.

    Monday at about 1:45 p.m., Meridian Police Department Capt. Dean Harper, commander of the department's Criminal Investigation Division, said officers responded to a burglar alarm in the 1000 block of 18th Street. Upon arrival they discovered a burglary was in progress.

    Additional units responded as well as a K-9 unit from the Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Department. The building was searched with the K-9 and officers and deputies were able to arrest 45-year-old Michael Carlos French of Meridian.

     French was charged with commercial burglary. His bond was set at $25,000.

    Police are asking the public's help in identifying a subject who is believed to have committed a commercial burglary Monday night. If you know this person's name please call 601-485-1893 or CrimeStoppers at 601-485-1860.

    Also Monday, Harper said police officers responded to a strong armed robbery call in the 900 block of 14th Street.

    Upon arrival they learned a man had been knocked down and his wallet stolen by a subject who fled in a car. A witness to the event led police to the suspect’s location where he was identified.

    Charges against the suspect are on hold pending the victim’s decision to pursue the case. The victim was not injured and the money was not recovered.
