Suspect Charged in January Robberies

Meridian police detectives Monday arrested 18-year-old Cedric Antonio Bennomon on one count of armed robbery and two counts of strong armed robbery.

Police say the charges stem from three separate incidents in January. One was in the 3300 block of 7th Street Jan. 26; another in the 3300 block of 7th Street Jan. 27; and the last Jan. 28 in the 4300 block of 30th Street.

The MPD says people were robbed at or near their residences. In one of the incidents, officials say a female suffered non-life threatening injuries and was treated and released from a local hospital.

Bennomon's total bond on the charges was set at $160,000.

Police say the strong armed robbery charges were upheld during a preliminary hearing Tuesday and the judge ordered Bennomon held without bond. The armed robbery charge will be presented to the Lauderdale County grand jury, likely in August.
