Norman Harris of the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics was the arresting officer, but said this morning he could not comment. An MBN spokesman said she had no information.

All three were in the Warren County Jail without bond.

Harris, along with officers from the Vicksburg Police Department and Warren County Sheriff’s Department, arrested two others in Warren County Wednesday.

James Elbert Ross, 27, 1425 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., and Brian D. Claiborne, 28, 1202 Adams St. Apt. 2, were arrested at 10:28 p.m. at China and Grove streets. Ross was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and “possession with intent to distribute.” The substance was not identified.

Claiborne’s charge was also “possession with intent” with no clarification. Once again, Harris said he could not comment and no information was available from the MBN office.

In a separate drug case, another man was arrested by Vicksburg police Wednesday and charged with sale of a controlled substance.

Horatio Carson, 21, no street address available, surrendered at the Vicksburg Police Department at 3:10 p.m., Sgt. Sandra Williams said.

He was released from the Warren County Jail after posting a $10,000 bond.

Shoplifting charge lands city man in jail

A petty theft landed a Vicksburg man in jail Wednesday, police said.

Lewis Adams, 46, 2805 River Road, was arrested at 12:19 p.m. for shoplifting at County Market, 2101 Clay St., Sgt. Sandra Williams said. Williams described the theft as petty, but since Adams has been convicted twice before of shoplifting, the offense was a felony.

Adams remained in the Warren County Jail this morning on a $10,000 bond.

The Lincoln welder, valued at $400, and the Compaq desktop computer, valued at $500, were reported stolen from River City Electronics, 2400 Levee St., at 8:35 a.m.
