Jones County authorities arrest suspected burglar

LAUREL (WDAM) –Authorities arrested suspected burglar John Christopher Shackleford Tuesday morning at a home.

The homeowner told authorities she just arrived home – when she found the power inside was turned off.  Authorities say when she went to the utility room, she discovered Shackleford crouched down near the circuit breaker. 

Shackleford is in Jones County Jail charged with burglary and possession of a firearm by a previously convicted felon.  His first court appearance will take place Wednesday afternoon at 1:00.
