Three Vicksburg teens have been charged with jumping on a train and stealing merchandise after the train stopped because a man walking on the tracks had been “bumped” by the train.

William Delane Walker, 17, 1413 Hayes St., Rondeshello Deon Dotson, 17, 1628 Crawford St., and a 16-year-old boy are charged with grand larceny of a train, said Lt. Bobby Stewart. He said the three jumped onto the train near Holly and Cherry streets and threw more than $500 in items from freight cars.

The teens were arrested at the Vicksburg police headquarters after going there for questioning.
