Jones County car burglary case solved

THE FOLLOWING IS A NEWS RELEASE FROM THE JONES COUNTY SHERIFFS DEPARTMENT

Jones County Sheriff's Department Investigator Sgt. Charles Myers solved an ongoing car burglary case this week with the arrest of Amanda Carol Dearman.

Sgt. Myers stated on May 1, 2014 Jones County Sheriff's deputies were dispatched to burglary complaint on Rose Lane.  Upon arrival the complainant advised she had parked her car at a friend's residence (Amanda Dearman) and afterwards had lost the keys.  The complainant then returned to check on her car and found several items missing, mostly clothing, valued at approximately $2500.  Upon further investigation Dearman was found to be wearing several items from the vehicle in pictures she posted on a social website. 

After an arrest warrant was signed by Judge Billie Graham, Dearman was taken into custody on May 30, 2014 after a lead developed her whereabouts.

Dearman now faces charges of auto burglary and burglary of a dwelling.  Bond was set at $20,000.00.  Being that she was already out on bond she is now revoked for a previous possession charge.
