Arrest in McDonald's drive-thru robbery | Crime
JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - A Jackson man arrested Tuesday by the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force has been charged in the armed robbery of a Jackson McDonald's two weeks ago.
On Aug. 1, two men reportedly walked up to the drive-thru window at the McDonald's at 1350 E. Woodrow Wilson Drive and demanded money. A witness then followed the suspects as they fled on foot.
A Jackson Police Department investigation led to two suspects -- Dexter Bratton, 27, of Jackson, and another suspect from Jackson.
Tuesday, Aug. 16, U.S. Marshals arrested Bratton on a fugitive warrant for house burglary and probation violation. Bratton then reportedly admitted his involvement in the robbery of the McDonald's. He also "implicated another suspect and an arrest is forthcoming," according to a news release from JPD.
Bratton has been charged with armed robbery of a business. Additional arrests are expected.
