U.S. Marshals transported a Meridian man Monday to a federal holding cell after officers with the Meridian Police Department apprehended him based on a federal arrest warrant.
Lt. Wade Johnson, spokesman for the MPD, said Henry Jerome Armstrong, 36, of 2711 11th St., was taken into custody Sunday during a routine traffic stop.
Armstrong is being held for violating his federal probation; information was not available about his original federal criminal charge.
Ken Jones, spokesman for the Mississippi Department of Corrections, said Armstrong was sentenced to serve three years in state prison in 1983 for robbery. Jones said Armstrong escaped in 1985; he was recaptured and was later paroled in 1987.
In 1990, Armstrong was arrested for possession of cocaine. Jones said Armstrong was released from state prison on that conviction in 1993.
