Three face multiple charges
Three juveniles have been charged as adults in several armed robberies in Marshall County, according to sheriff Kenny Dickerson. Two of the three are also charged with attempted murder, he said.
All three are being held in the Marshall County jail under $1.2 million bonds following an initial appearance in justice court, Dickerson said.
The arrests and charges follow the continued investigation into three armed robberies in Marshall County – at Warsaw Grocery, Victoria One Stop and Quality Inn in Holly Springs.
Jayland Dize Bagley, 17, of the 14000 block of Goodman Road, Olive Branch, is charged with two counts armed robbery, one count attempted murder and one count of home invasion, Dickerson said. He is a suspect in the armed robbery of Warsaw Grocery and Victoria One Stop.
Artavious Wilson, 16, of the 1000 block of DeSoto Road, Olive Branch, is charged with three counts of armed robbery, one count of attempted murder and one count home invasion, Dickerson said.
The home invasion charges stem from an incident that took place at a residence in the Grove of Cayce, Dickerson said. The attempted murder charges are the result of an attempted armed robbery that allegedly took place off Barringer Road, he said, where the victim also had a weapon and was shot during the incident.
Juanya Aldridge, 16, of the 200 block of Beverly Lane, Holly Springs, is charged with three counts armed robbery, according to the sheriff.
Dickerson said several law enforcement agencies continue to work with each other to develop suspects in a number of other crimes that took place in DeSoto County and Memphis, Tenn., where these named suspects could have been involved.
Dickerson said DeSoto County has placed a detainer on two individuals charged here with armed robbery and home invasion, if and when they make bond.
He said the very lengthy investigation is expected to continue for weeks and that more charges may be lodged against some of these suspects and additional suspects may be identified.
Dickerson, Maj. Kelly McMillen and Det. Eddie Thompson with the Holly Springs Police Department are working together in an effort to identify other locations where these individuals, along with others not yet identified or in custody, could be possibly connected through criminal activity, the sheriff said.
“It is very sad when you have crimes committed by anyone, but especially when you have many crimes allegedly committed by individuals of this young age,” he said.
