From Jones County Sheriff’s Department Communications

ELLISVILLE, Miss. (WDAM) - As it turns out the case of the purloined porch package in Jones County was merely the act of a good Samaritan gone wrong.

The Jones County Sheriff’s Department had sent out a notice Friday afternoon, asking for the public’s help in identifying a woman caught on camera committing a possible porch theft at a residence on Mississippi 29 south near Ellisville.

In a Saturday morning news release, JCSD said the woman in question called the department and “the situation was resolved as a a case of good intentions with her picking up the package for the original homeowner and being unaware that the home had been sold and had new owners living there.”

JCSD extends its thanks to all concerned and considers the matter resolved.
