Scratch one off HPD's most wanted list

Hattiesburg police officers took one of the city's most wanted to jail along with another robbery suspect.

Officials say 25-year-old Jason Fairley was arrested after being on the department's most wanted list for two months. 

Detectives say Fairley was wanted for robbing a man at gunpoint in April. Fairley is being charged with armed robbery. 

Detectives also made another arrest on Saturday.  Anthony Rucker, 41, was taken into custody after he was allegedly connected to stealing frozen meat from a discount store on Highway 42.  He is being charged with commercial burglary.

Detectives say they're working hard to crack down on the rash of burglaries that's been going on in the city.
