At 4:17 p.m., Keith Wilson, 27, 309 Cairo Drive, was charged with sale of cocaine, Vicksburg police Lt. Bobby Stewart said. Investigators had been to his home that morning but had not found him, Stewart said.

Five people were arrested before daylight in the roundup that included charges of prescription forgery and sale of a controlled substance.
