Jones County civilian employees arrested for forgery

JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

State and Federal investigators arrested two civilian employees of the Department of Public Safety in Laurel.

Agents from the MBI and the Department of Homeland Security converged on the Laurel drivers license examining station on South Magnolia Friday.

The subjects of their 12 week long investigation were two civilian employees, 48-year-old Yolanda Perkins of Laurel and 55-year-old Deborah Stewart of Waynesboro, both of whom face five counts of forgery each.

As the two were arrested, two cars containing a dozen Hispanic males pulled up and were detained by the agents. They are currently being housed in the Jones County Jail awaiting transfer by Immigration and customs officials.

It is not known if the forgery charges are related to any illegal immigrants.
