Police say a Gulfport man broke into a business on Kelly Avenue on Jan. 4.

Gulfport police Sgt. Joshua Bromen said Derike Sevell Anderson was arrested Wednesday on a charge of commercial burglary. Bromen said an investigation into the break-in of the Chevron Gas Station at 1701 Kelly Ave. led to Anderson.

Bromen said in a press release Anderson shattered the glass at the gas station and took an unknown amount of merchandise, then ran away.

Anderson was taken to the Harrison County jail. His bond was set at $50,000 by Judge Dianne Ladner. He also was served with an outstanding warrant for violation of parole through the Mississippi Department of Corrections.
