Female fugitive wanted for burglary arrested in Leake County


A fugitive wanted for a 2020 burglary here who is known for giving law enforcement false names was arrested in Leake County late last month during a traffic stop, Neshoba County Sheriff Eric Clark said.

The fugitive, Rosemary Carter, 46, 969 Union Road, was arrested and charged with armed robbery.

“Rosemary has been on the run forever,” Clark said.

He said the woman had given multiple names in the past including variations of Rosemary and Rose Marie which she usually paired with the last names of Carter or Stribling as well as hyphenated variations.

She was arrested sometime between the late evening hours of July 28 and the early morning hours of July 29.

When she was pulled over in Leake County she gave the name Marie Nickleberry, according to Clark.

Clark’s office has been looking for the woman for about a year.

Carter and two accomplices were indicted for the armed burglary of a dwelling in the McDonald community almost two years ago.

The accused accomplices are Johnny Harrison, 23, and Tabias Leeonte Edwards, 24.

The trio was indicted for breaking into a home on Road 248 in the McDonald community on Sept. 22, 2020. Clark said they made off with a phone, .38 revolver and $1,200 in cash.

Harrison, 23, 10910 Road 206, Union, pleaded guilty to the charge of burglary of a dwelling related to the incident during the March court term.

Edwards remains at large, Clark said.
