On March 6, 2018 the Gulfport Police Department arrested 19 year old Xavier Olagawon Dawkins of Gulfport charging him with one count of Burglary of a Business.
The arrest was the result of a patrol response on March 1, 2018 at 8:21 am to a report of Burglary at the Davis and Crump Law Firm located at 2601 14th Street. A suspect viewed on video surveillance entered the business and removed property the night before. Video surveillance was released to media outlets who disseminated information about the incident. Gulfport Police Detectives investigated the incident and followed leads ultimately leading to the arrest of Dawkins.
The warrants were obtained from Harrison County Justice Court Judge Diane Ladner who set bond at $50,000 for Burglary. Dawkins was processed and transported to the Harrison County Adult Detention Center.
