RIDGELAND, MS (Mississippi News Now) -
After distributing photos of a suspected purse thief, the Ridgeland Police Department has made multiple arrests. Officers say a purse was stolen from a 78-year-old woman's shopping cart at Walmart, and they have three of the culprits behind bars while continuing to search for the fourth.
According to Sergeant Revell Dixon, officers arrested Ashley Denise Williams, 21, and her accomplices, 22-year-old Jorvoski Blackmon, and Rysheda Jordan, 21, but continue to search for Michael Christopher Morgan, 26, all from Canton. A warrant for Morgan's arrest has been issued, but police have not yet been able to locate him.
Surveillance photos distributed by RPD last week show Williams wearing two purses as she leaves the WalMart in Ridgeland on Dec. 4 with one of her alleged accomplices, who is carrying a small child.
Both women left Walmart and got into a car with a black male driving a dark colored Chevrolet Impala, believed to be a 2001-2005 model. The man left the store approximately 15 seconds before the two females, according to police.
If you have any information on Michael Christopher Morgan's whereabouts, please contact the Ridgeland Police Department.
