Jones County traffic stop reveals stolen guns

JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - A routine traffic stop in Jones County landed two men in jail on burglary charges on Tuesday.

Jones County authorities arrested Justin Manasco and Daniel Boyd for allegedly breaking into a home and stealing several guns. Hours before the burglary was reported, deputies pulled over the two men and spotted the guns on the back seat and ran a check on them, but the men were let go.

Four hours later a 911 caller claimed a home in Calhoun had been burglarized and several guns had been stolen that matched the description of those spotted in the traffic stop.

Investigators tracked down the two men and confiscated the guns. Manasco and Boyd are in the Jones County Jail.
