Three arrested on warrants

Deputies at 6 a.m. arrested Tyrone Carter II, 37, 820 Jackson St., on a warrant accusing him of failure to register as a sex offender. He was released on $2,500 bond.

Thirty minutes later, they arrested Melvin Harris, 22, 1501 Military Ave., on a Mississippi Department of Corrections warrant charging his with probation violation. Harris, Pace said, was on probation from an earlier case. Harris was being held without bond in the Warren County Jail.
