NATCHEZ — Additional charges have been filed against two teens already incarcerated on allegations they participated in several local burglaries and robberies.

The new charges against Carlton Johntrell Hoggatt, 18, 225 School St., Ocean Springs, and Gerald Kendrell Davis, 15, 11 Fifth St., Natchez, were for armed robbery.

The new charges are related to the armed robbery of a Pizza Hut delivery man on Fifth Street on Dec. 27, Natchez Police Sgt. Craig Godbold said.

Police reports filed at the time said that during the alleged incident four males carrying firearms approached the deliveryman, taking $20 and three pizzas.

Hoggatt has previously been charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon and burglary. Davis was previously charged with armed robbery and burglary.

The initial robbery charges brought against the teens were the result of an incident in which several teens allegedly demanded money from a bartender outside of Talk of the Town.

When the bartender ran from the suspects, they allegedly fired a shotgun blast after her.

While teens suspected in several local robberies have been arrested, the police have not been able to locate Jumar Jackson, 16, 5 Tyler Circle.

Jackson is wanted on strong-arm robbery charges for an incident in which he allegedly punched a man in the throat, and when the victim fell he took $80.

The Natchez Police Department is offering a reward for information about how to find Jackson, Godbold said.
