HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

A man out on bond for a 2015 murder charge was arrested Wednesday during a drug raid in Pass Christian.

Harrison County Sheriff Troy Peterson said 22-year-old Alexander Dedeaux is back behind bars. This time, he is charged with felony possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute methamphetamine and marijuana.

Peterson said Dedeaux was arrested when the Harrison County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Unit and agents with the Coastal Narcotics Enforcement Team executed a search warrant at a home on Audrey Ave.

According to Peterson, investigators found 24 grams of meth, four ounces of marijuana, a handgun, and cash inside the home. Dedeaux was present when the raid took place and was arrested, Peterson said.

Dedeaux is accused of shooting Bruce Robinson, Jr. to death on Good Friday in 2015. A grand jury indicted Dedeaux for first degree murder.

Robinson’s family admitted after the murder he had been in trouble before, but he was working to turn his life around. According to family members, Robinson was a caring father to his daughter and was going to school to get his GED.

Judge Diane Ladner set Dedeaux’s bond at $200,000 for Wednesday’s drug charges. Ladner also took him off bond for the murder charge.
