Investigation nets two arrests

• Third suspect not yet ID’d

The Marshall County Sheriff’s Department has made two arrests in a February 2 armed rob­bery/kidnapping and is seeking a third suspect, according to sheriff Kenny Dickerson.

He said two male victims were lured to a residence in the 200 block of Millwright Road, then were held at gunpoint while suspects took cell phones and other personal property from them. Two suspects then drove the two victims to an ATM machine at the intersection of Shelby Drive and Elvis Presley in Memphis, Tenn. While one suspect went to a Regions Bank ATM with one of the victims, the other victim was held in the vehicle by a female suspect, the sheriff said.

One victim was forced to withdraw money from his account.

One suspect was identified from video evidence obtained at the ATM that also revealed the suspect’s vehicle.

During an interview with the victims, two of three suspects were identified, Dickerson said.

Elizabeth Abigail Tennis, 18, of the 200 block of Millwright Road, was arrested February 14 and charged with accessory to the fact and later released on $5,000 bond, the sheriff said.

Cedric Alexander, 20, of Horn Lake, was taken into custody March 12 by officers with the Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force and is being held on armed robbery charges on a $100,000 bond, Dickerson said.

The third suspect, a male, has not been identified, the sheriff said.

Anyone who has any information related to this case is asked to call the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office, Department of Investigations, at 662-252-1311. All tips will be kept strictly confidential. A substantial reward is being offered for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the third suspect in this case and any other related information.
