The suspect involved in the break-in at Divine Donuts was determined to also be a suspect at an earlier armed robbery at Michel’s Record Shop.

Just before 8 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 19, Vicksburg police were alerted by a neighbor that a man was behaving suspiciously. They observed the man, a black male wearing a red hoodie, on their security camera and reported he was walking back and forth in front of the business.

A unit near the scene quickly arrived and found the man matching the description inside the business. Backup was called and the suspect, Jonathan Rodgers, 41, was taken into custody.

Through the course of the investigation it was found that Rodgers was also a suspect in an armed robbery which took place at 1:15 p.m. that afternoon at Michel’s Record Shop on Washington Street.

The victims stated an unknown male struck them in the heads and then took money from the register.

Rodgers appeared before two judges on Tuesday, Feb. 22. Rodgers appeared before Judge Marcie Southerland on Tuesday, Feb. 22 on the charges of armed robbery and two counts of aggravated assault. He was ordered to be held without bond. Rodgers then saw Judge Angela Carpenter on the charge of business burglary. He was given a $60,000 bond for that charge. Rodgers was bound to the Warren County Grand Jury on all charges.
