A Vicksburg man has been indicted on multiple counts involving three robberies that occurred within six days of each other in April 2016.

Kevin Satterfield, 42, 2255 Freetown Road, faces three counts of armed robbery and three counts of possession of a weapon after a felony conviction in the April 2 robbery of the B.G. Jr. Convenience Store, 4110 Clay St., and the April 3 Dollar General Store on Mississippi 27, and the April 8 Kangaroo Express at 574 U.S. 61 South.

The weapon counts accuse Satterfield of using a handgun reported stolen form Chesapeake, Va.

Satterfield, who was an early suspect in the robberies based on the similarities in the crimes, video surveillance and tips from the community, was arrested after someone who knew him identified him from a still photo taken from store videos.

In another case, the Warren County grand jury indicted John Wayne Ferguson, no age listed, 2424 Oak St.; Deandre Kendall Royal, 26, 1514 Ethel St.; and Luanna Rae Mejia, 34, 4407 Halls Ferry Road; on a charge of armed robbery in the August 2016 robbery of Eddie Brown Jr.

According to the indictment, the trio threatened Brown with a knife.
