Man out on bond charged in robbery

Published 12:04am Thursday, January 17, 2013

NATCHEZ — A man awaiting trial for murder has been charged in connection with the Sunday night armed robbery behind the Seven-Star Store on U.S. 61 North.

Detective Jerry Ford said NPD charged Davarious J. Clemons, 20, 224 Oakland Drive, with armed robbery Tuesday.

Until his arrest on Tuesday, Clemons was out on a $45,000 bond for the October 2011 murder of Cedric Morgan and a $45,000 bond for another armed robbery.

Clemons is accused of fatally shooting Morgan, 30, during a botched robbery at the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. and St. Catherine streets, where Morgan and his wife, Crystal, were in their car.

Police have also charged Joseph Smith, 25, 205 Oakland Drive, with armed robbery in connection with the Seven-Star Store robbery.

Ford said Clemons and Smith got a ride with an individual to the store and while the driver was in the store, Clemons and Smith reportedly approached a man washing his car behind the store.

Smith reportedly got the man’s attention, and Clemons then reportedly hit him in the head with a pistol.

Neither Smith nor Clemons has a bond. Ford said he believes Clemons will likely be denied a bond because of his prior offenses.

Smith was arrested on an armed robbery charge in December 2011, Ford said, but the victim never pursued the charge.

    How does one only get a $45000 bond when charged with murder? Especially when he’s already out on bond. Can we get a report on who the judge was?

    Why has there been no prosecution for the murder that happened over15 months ago?
    “…likely to be denied bond because of prior offenses”, surely you jest!
    He’s already out for a second armed robbery arrest.

    The system is breaking down and yes ND why didn’t you write what judge is responsible for this mess?? These high bonds aren’t slowing down these crimnals and may be these judges aren’t collecting the fine monies as that of the 2 million dollars of fines all ready owes to Adams county thru the years that haven’t been put to action of folks to go to jail!!!

    What on earth makes Ford believe he will not be allowed bond? If he was out on bond for murder, what exactly does he have to do to not be given bond?

    We need a confirmation of who the judge is, not that we don’t have our suspicions.

    You need to start getting mad. These stupid acts by local judges need to be dealt with on election day. Until then we need to carry signs in front of the courthouse.

    These yocals think they are in Hollis? Compton? 8 Mile? We need to put judges in office who are seemingly not bought and paid for. They are as stupid as gubna barbour who turned murdering, robbing, rapists loose to do their heinous acts again. Judges here should be charged with aiding and abetting these animals. If they turn a skunk loose and the skunk stinks again the judge needs to be criminally charged. This is out of control.
