JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - Aaron Haynes, the man that led Jones County authorities on a 12-hour manhunt, made his initial appearance Tuesday before Jones County Justice Court Judge, David Lyons.
Haynes was charged with two counts of residential burglary and two counts commercial burglary, along with two counts of simple assault on a police officer and one count of taking a motor vehicle without permission. Bond was set at $15,000 for each count resulting in a total of $105,000 cash bond.
The manhunt for Haynes began after officers from the Jones County Sheriff's Department went to arrest him in connection with two church burglaries.
Haynes was reportedly to have assaulted two Jones county deputies while being taken into custody and then fled on foot at which time the manhunt ensued, involving multiple agencies.
He was arrested Thursday night after being spotted inside a home on Taylor Drive in the Soso community. When deputies approached the home, he fled into the woods, where he was later arrested.
