Two men are charged with armed robbery and felony motor vehicle taking. Police arrested 25-year-old Ronnie Winningham of Biloxi and 15-year-old Darius Bland of Gulfport after a complaint of the robbery on Bayshore Drive shortly before 2:30 Thursday.
The victim told police he was sleeping in his car when he woke up to a black male approaching his driver’s side door with a gun. The suspect demanded money, his wallet, and vehicle. The victim refused and the black male returned to a car. The other suspect, a white male, was driving.
While investigating this armed robbery, D’Iberville police received a complaint about a stolen vehicle from the Scarlet Pearl Casino. Surveillance video indicated Winningham and Bland were allegedly also responsible for stealing that vehicle. The suspects were taken to the Harrison County Jail with bonds set at $200,000 for Winningham and $175,000 for Bland.
