Jones County crime spiked over the weekend

JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - Jones County Sheriff Alex Hodge said deputies spent much of the weekend working larceny, burglaries, and DUI's.

Sheriff Hodge encourages residents to be very vigilant and secure their property as well as possible.

He said with the 4th of July holiday being in the middle of the week, more people are likely to be intoxicated and partying all week long, which leads to other criminal behavior.
