FORREST COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - The Forrest County Sheriff's Department is searching for a suspect who broke into a home in the Glendale Community Tuesday morning.
Authorities say a neighbor spotted a man breaking into the home on Scenic Drive and called 911. The suspect escaped into the nearby woods to try to hide from the deputies. Forrest County and Petal Police set up a perimeter to keep the suspect contained. A K-9 dog was brought in from Hattiesburg to assist with the search.
The suspect jumped into a car that had stopped for him on the Evelyn Gandy Parkway and escaped going west.
Though the suspect managed to get away, authorities say they believe they know who it is.
