MPD: Tips Lead to Robbery Charge

Meridian police say media coverage led to authorities to identify and then charge a robbery suspect.

Detectives say Roylando S. McAllister, 28, of Meridian is charged in a Sept. 11 incident that happened in the 1600 block of 15th Street.

Officials say McAllister turned himself in voluntarily Wednesday, accompanied by his attorney. After an initial appearance, McAllister's bond was set at $10,000.

Capt. James Sharpe said police received calls to Crimestoppers after the suspects' images were broadcast. He says the crime was committed by two men, so one suspect is still at large.

Anyone who has information may contact the Meridian Police Department Criminal Investigation Division at 601-485-1859, The Meridian Police Department Front Desk at 601-485-1893 or Crimestoppers at 601-485-1860.
