Meridian, Miss. An arrest has been made in the case of an elderly Meridian woman who was recently robbed.

Almost two weeks ago 85-year-old Annie Cockrell was robbed at gunpoint at her store near Velma Young Park. She was not hurt, but the suspect took all of the money from the cash register.

Detective Dareall Thompson says Dwayne L. Simmons has been charged with the armed robbery.

Simmons, 28, was also recently charged with a home invasion armed robbery at Magnolia Courts and the armed robbery of a store on Highway 39 North.
