Public's help sought in Jones County burglary

JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

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

The Jones County Sheriff’s Department is asking the public’s help in a burglary that occurred last week on Highway 15-North.
 
Investigators from the department say that individuals cut through the back fence of the old Harper Garage and stole a single-axle military style trailer. After stealing the trailer, the suspects
loaded it up with two push mowers, two lawn tractors, floor jacks and mechanic’s tools
and car stereo equipment with a total worth of about $15,000. The crime, they believe, took place between the hours of midnight and
6 a.m.
 
Thad Windham, Investigator for the Jones County Sheriff’s Department, says the thieves worked fast and seemed to be knowledgeable of what they wanted to take.
 
“They took the corner section of the back fence down and took the trailer which was parked next to an old fire truck.” Windham said, “They then pulled in, hooked to it, pulled out and then went around to the front of the building and that’s where they loaded up and made off with what they got.”

Anyone with information regarding this crime, please contact the Jones County Sheriff’s Department at 601-425-3147 or Jones County Crimestoppers at 601-428-7867. There may be a reward for information
leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible.
