MISSISSIPPI ESCAPEES CAPTURED BY TROOPERS


FEBRURARY 23, 2009

(LITTLE ROCK) - Three of the eight fugitives who escaped from the Marion
County (Mississippi) Jail earlier today have been apprehended by
Arkansas State Troopers.  The arrests occurred near I-40 at Prothro
Junction in North Little Rock following an initial report of a pick-up
truck being driven erratically along the westbound lanes of Interstate
40.

Shortly after 1:20 PM today troopers from Arkansas State Police Troop A
were dispatched into the area where the reckless driver was last
reported.  At least three vehicles had been struck by the pick-up truck.

Trooper Jimmy Mitchell spotted the suspect vehicle and initiated a
traffic stop and was joined by Trooper Adrian Ray.  Both troopers were
able to take the three individuals inside the truck into custody without
incident.

Arrested and transported to the Pulaski County Jail were:

*       Mickah Lott, 28, (driver), wanted for murder
*       Ricky C. Roberts, 18, wanted for breaking and entering, larceny
and theft
*       David L. Johnson, Jr. 23, wanted for felony theft

Arkansas State Police believe the truck the inmates were using in the
get-away and a gun found in the truck were stolen.  Troopers are working
with Mississippi law enforcement authorities to determine where the
thefts may have occurred.
