RAWL SPRINGS, MS (WDAM) -
A woman has been charged after a chase involving a stolen vehicle out of Leakesville ended in Hattiesburg at the Dollar General on Highway 49 near Rawls Springs on Monday.
Tina Jones, 52, is charged with two counts of burglary and one count of grand larceny, according to Greene County Investigator Tommy Henderson. Jones has a hold on her by the Hattiesburg Police Department and is in jail on a $25,000 bail.
Henderson said a woman reported the car stolen Monday morning around 8 a.m.
“The woman had just left home, and felt uneasy. She went back home and found the SUV gone,” Henderson said.
Henderson said the car is back in the owner’s possession, and he doesn’t believe the women knew one another personally.
