RIDGELAND — Witnesses to a Northpark mall carjacking on Labor Day were able to snap photos of license plates that led to at least one arrest while another suspect remains at-large.

Two women were getting into a Ford Edge on the upper level between Belk and Dillard’s when two men in a white Pontiac approached them, robbing of them of their purses at gunpoint with one of the suspects taking off in the car.

Jackson Police were notified and one suspect was arrested after he crashed the Pontiac into a JPD cruiser.

Ridgeland Police Lt. Tony Willridge said they received a call at 4:30 p.m. Monday.

Police Chief John Neal said weapons were found in the white Pontiac and guns were displayed during the robbery.

He said the women touched the alarm of the Ford’s key fob which got attention from citizens in the parking lot. They were actually able to take a photo of the Ford Edge’s license plate as well as the Pontiac and get them to police.

Neal said from there JPD quickly responded to the call because the suspects were headed their way.

Johnathan Campbell, 18, of Jackson was arrested after he intentionally crashed the Pontiac into the JPD cruiser.

The stolen Ford Edge was recovered in west Jackson and police are searching for that suspect.

Campbell has since been charged with armed carjacking.

Neal gave a stern warning to anyone else who might want to come to Ridgeland to break the law.

“Stay away from Madison County,” he said. “That’s what you want to do.”
