MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - Meridian police have arrested the man they say robbed a local gas station at gunpoint a little over a week ago.

Sgt. Dareall Thompson says Kenneth Barrett robbed the Grandview Gas-N-Go on Jan. 22.

He's also charged with embezzlement after police say they discovered he was stealing money from the business where he worked.

Barrett has already gone before a judge for his preliminary hearing. His bond is set at a total of $175,000.
