On Saturday, Meridian Police arrested 37 year old Douglas E. Calhoun of Fulton Alabama on a Fugitive from Justice Warrant from Alabama. Calhoun was apprehended on a traffic stop on North Hills Street on Friday night. The original charge from Alabama is Theft by Deception.There is no bond for this charge.

On Saturday, Meridian Police arrested 47 year old Murray D. Pickett of Meridian and charged him with Aggravated Assault. This charge stems from an incident that occurred in the 600 block of 21st Street Friday night where it is alleged Pickett stabbed another man during an altercation. The victim received medical treatment for his non-life threatening wounds at a local hospital. Bond was set at $150,000.

On Sunday, Meridian Police arrested 26 year old Dewan S. Burrage of Meridian and charged him with Aggravated Domestic Violence, Receiving Stolen Property and Felony DUI. These charges stem from an incident that occurred on April 4th where it is alleged Burrage, while driving a stolen car, purposely and repeatedly rammed another vehicle driven by the mother of his child which caused her to wreck her vehicle. Burrage was taken into custody after a short foot chase and afterwards it was determined he was DUI. Because Burrage was already facing a Felony DUI through the Lauderdale County Sheriff's Department, this DUI was upgraded to a felony as well. Bond was set at $50,000 per charge. The victim received minor injuries from the accident.

On April 3rd, Meridian Police responded to the area of 18th Avenue and 14th Street on a report of an Attempted Auto Burglary. Police were unable to locate the suspect but are now releasing photos of the suspect. If you know this suspect's identity please call Police at 601-485-1863 or CrimeStoppers at 601-485-1860.
