JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

This is a news release from Jones County Sheriff's Department 

Jones County Sheriff's Department was dispatched to R.J. Evans Road on May 27, 2014 in reference to a home burglary complaint.  Upon arrival the deputies spoke to the home owner who advised them her home had been burglarized and several items were missing.  Jeremy James the victim's brother is the suspect in this case.  The victim claimed Jeremy James made several phone calls while inside the house, calls that only he would have made. 

One of the items missing was a Sony Playstation3 that was found to have been pawned at a local pawn shop by one of Jeremy James' friends.  Employees at the pawnshop were able to identity James and his accomplice from store video.  The accomplice used his name on the transaction because James did not have any ID.  James has an extensive arrest history for other burglaries and is currently on probation with MDOC.  His bond was set at $10,000.00 and he was placed on hold by MDOC.
