WIGGINS, MS (WLOX) - A suspect wanted for armed robberies in Wiggins, Harrison County, and Biloxi was charged Thursday, but officials said the investigation is ongoing and more arrests are expected.
Gordon McDonald is behind bars at the Stone County jail, charged with robbing the Cabin Store in Wiggins on Jan. 21. Harrison County Sheriff Troy Peterson said his department also has armed robbery warrants for McDonald for holding up the Magnolia Bay Hotel the same night.
Detective Richard Gulledge, with the Wiggins Police Department, said investigators worked for weeks to identify McDonald and link him to multiple robberies. McDonald was already behind bars at the Stone County jail on unrelated charges when investigators served him with the robbery warrant.
