Police got the call to the Winn-Dixie in the Eastgate shopping area around 7:30 Sunday evening on another armed robbery call.

Police are on the lookout for two black males, who reportedly robbed a female victim.

This is the third time in just over a week that an armed robbery call has come in from this area. An arrest was just made in a separate case late last week, with one suspect facing charges for kidnapping and armed robbery after a woman was abducted outside the cash king at East Gate Plaza.

That happened on October 21st, three days later a man was robbed at gunpoint outside the Autozone, and Sunday night, a third armed robbery, again in the same parking lot.

If you have any information please call meridian police or Crimestoppers at 601-485-1860

    Oh, but Mr. Harper said on TV the citizens had no cause for concern. If there is one thing I hate it is to be treated like I am stupid. I have personal knowledge of a somebody being robbed and two businesses that were broken into that was not even on the news. There is no telling what goes on that we are not aware of. My suggestion to Mr. Harper is that he should try being a little more truthful with the citizens so they will understand the severity of the problem. I hope MPD and LSD will find a way to be a little more successful in their efforts to serve and protect!

    Why won't the Meridian Police Dept. post policemen in that area in the late evenings while the stores are open? This is getting ridiculas and something has to be done. It was my husband robbed and my friend's niece robbed last night, same area. Go figure Mayor!
