RIDGELAND POLICE had made two arrests and were in the process of identifying a third suspect at press time in connection with Craigslist-related robberies.
In at least four separate incidents, robbers have used the online classified ads as a way to meet victims. Sometimes the robbers are armed, and sometimes not, police said.
The latest incident was an armed robbery that happened midmorning December 10 at the Newk’s restaurant on Lake Harbour Drive. Investigators were still trying to identify the suspect at press time.
