Ridgeland robbery

Ridgeland PD is seeking a suspect in a robbery.  RPD stated:

Strong Arm Robbery Suspect

Ridgeland Police are trying to identity the subject in the attached videos.  He was at a local restaurant when he punched a juvenile victim in the head and stole money from the juvenile.

According to witnesses, after placing an order, the man accused the juvenile of taking his money.  When the juvenile denied taking anything from the man, the man reached over and grabbed the juvenile’s money from his hand and punched him in the head. 

The surveillance video confirmed the incident and captured the Strong Arm Robbery on video.  The video also showed the victim never took or found anything from the man.

Do they have any restaurants in Ridgeland? Any that attract clientele worth robbing?

No evidence of a robbery that I saw!?

Is Olive's Garden the most upscale Ridgeland restaurant. That would be my best guess

Kingfish said...

Tico's, Ely's, Ruth's Chris, Anjou, Amerigo's, Kathryn's, Shapleys.

Those are some pretty nice restaurants. Some of you are either trolls or just plain ignorant.

@ 11:06..Your ignorance is showing.
"Is Olive's Garden the most upscale Ridgeland restaurant. That would be my best guess"
First, the name of the restaurant to which you must be talking about is "Olive Garden."
Next, it is in Jackson, not Ridgeland.
Last, if you are asking a question then the sentence requires a question mark, not a period. Also, the end of your second sentence requires a period.

Obviously you don't dine out often, and certainly you don't dine in Ridgeland. You need to stick to Church's and the nearest Exxon station for you meals.

Or, likely, both.

Grow a pair, Kingfish, and report on which restaurant.

PS: Olive Garden is not in Ridgeland. It's down there next to the Motel 6 in Jacktown where a bass fisherman was murdered by getting himself shot in the head and daily snatchings go on every day in the nearby Target parking lot. You know the area. Not Ridgeland.

I didn't see a robbery on the video provided. Nor is a restaurant a place that has a walk-up counter where one orders.

If yer plate is hotter than the food itself, it ain't a nice restaurant.

This had to have occurred at Renaissance and from the floors it looks like 5 Guys. I was at Seafood Revolution for Happy Hour (yet another horrible Ridgeland bistro) when I saw several of Ridgeland's finest pull up. Ambulance was on scene around the corner when I left.

This would not be the first incident to have happened at Five Guys where the police were called. The problem with a hamburger joint at the Renaissance is that everyone loves hamburgers: rich and poor, criminal and law-abiding. I give the Renaissance a few years before it is the next County Line Rd. long live the Outlets of MS!!

@Hold My Cash - What difference does it make which restaurant? What if it was Five Guys? Will you add it to your no-fly zone along with Target on I-55? Do you really believe there is some magic deterrent at a county line or city limit? Ridgeland and Jackson (and every other suburb) are part of the the same metro area and there are no barriers. Crime is a metro-wide problem that requires metro-wide solutions and cooperation.

Anonymous said...

No way it's 5 Guys because there isn't that much floor space without a sack of potatoes or peanuts. My first thought was the food court in Northpark, but it's been 10 years since I stepped in NP.

Furthermore, how did a post about crime at an undisclosed Ridgeland location wind up with comments bashing Renaissance? Let's stop arguing about whose stucco shopping centers are uglier....looking at you fellow NE JXN'ers who act like Maywood Mart, Colonial Mart and DeVille don't exist. Remember most of us are on the same team pulling for a better metro.

10:47, The no-fly zone should be put back in place all over Jackson. I can leave my Range Rover unlocked and running in the parking lot of Madison Kroger. Until Mayor Phony Yarber can really point to a substantial decrease in crime, no legitimate business will want to setup shop on County Line Rd. Any word on Target moving out?

When your Rover is available in the parking lot of the Madison Kroger, please post it here. Thank you so much!

Kingfish said...

Everything police release is posted. Restaurant didn't want its name released.

Messick said...

I'm not sure what to post, so I'll just kick back and watch the barbs fly.

"Head for the mountains of Busch... beer..."

9:48, you sure spend a lot of time at Renaissance to be recognizing the floor of Five Guys (if that's where this occurred). Maybe you had too much to drink at happy hour. Really stupid of you to go somewhere that is horrible by your "standards". You don't know the difference between a "bistro" and a fine dining establishment. You're probably one of these who doesn't know if they're in Ridgeland or Jackson.

Anonymous said...

9:48 you didn't get my sarcasm I take it? Let me 'splain: I was BRAGGING on Seafood Revolution. We (Ridgeland) don't deserve Chef Folse and company. That better? And yes, I love 5 Guys too.

Looks like Taco Bell!

Zach Blanton said...

12:14, is that why Burke's Outlet & Mississippi Smiles Denistry BOTH just opened on County Line Road on the Jackson side? How about Conn's? Sure we lost Best Buy & Sam's, but you must lose a few to gain a few. No word on Target moving out of Jackson, because it does substantial business, and a Target in Madison has become a pipe dream, synonymous with the existence of Harbor Walk in Ridgeland, i.e. not happening.

Since when is 'not wanting to be identified' the determinant in good reporting? The 'beauty queen' you spent weeks identifying last year didn't want to be identified either.

If you posted what the PO PO provided, you would also have posted the name of the place.

"There was a robbery somewhere in the city" doesn't meet the bar of adequate news. But you already knew that.

I live in Jackson and have for over 40 years. Defending Jackson against the unreasonable B.S. is commendable, but attempting to defend Jackson with your logic is just dumb.

A dental office in a strip mall is not a positive sign, economically, for an area. Losing anchor businesses and replacing them with ancillary businesses is not the type of "lose a few to gain a few" occurrence one would desire. That's like putting a dollar store in one of the wealthiest corners of the state.

Until Jackson changes it's black/white issue to a green issue, there will be no business being in business in Jackson.

Kingfish said...

Some information is gained through public records requests. Other info is volunteered by the police. Everything the police provided was posted.

Anonymous said...

3:40 is right. Burke's Outlet isn't exactly something to brag about. The black/white issue is only going one way, more blacks, less whites. Not sure what % of the city's population needs to be black for the issue to go away so more important business can be tended to. 90%? 95%?

3:40 also mentioned Dollar General being across from the Country Club of Jackson. What do the PGA players think when turning into CCJ right after passing a Dollar General, vacant Kroger and Krystal to the north or the beauty supply stores and lack luster apartments to the south? Don't worry golf fans, there is plenty of safe parking at the Northpark theater.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease.

Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
