Arrests were expected as early as today in a residential armed robbery early Saturday morning at the Apple Orchard Apartments, 902 Blossom Lane, said Sheriff Martin Pace.

Three armed men reportedly broke into an apartment around 1 a.m. Saturday, and robbed at gunpoint the three men who share the apartment said Pace. The assailants made off with a few small electronic items, including a cell phone and an Ipod, as well as a few hundred dollars in cash, said Pace.

“We have had several interviews that have taken place today, and I feel confident at this point that this investigation will result in the arrest of those responsible,” Pace said.

Man, 57, missing for more than week

A Vicksburg man last seen a week ago was reported missing by his wife Saturday, said Vicksburg Police Sgt. Larry Holloway.

Fred Burnell Carter Jr., 57, was last seen by his wife leaving the apartment they share at The Park Residences, 4223 I-20 Frontage Road, Dec. 19, said Holloway. Carter was driving his wife’s bronze 2006 Cadillac SRX, plate number WBF906. Hollowell said Carter reportedly told his wife he was going to another residence of theirs on Lane Street to make repairs on the home and did not return.

“She said that he’s done this kind of thing before, but he hasn’t been gone this long,” Holloway said.

Carter is a black male, and was last seen wearing a white sweater and black pants. Holloway said he is disabled, and has a history of health problems. Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Vicksburg Police at 601-636-2511.
