Cypress Lake robbers convicted

Rankin-Madison District Attorney Michael Guest issued the following press release:

Four Men Convicted of Following a couple Home and Robbing
Them at their Home in Madison

                Madison and Rankin Counties’ District Attorney Michael Guest announced today that following a two day trial, Juantez D. McDonald was convicted of two counts of armed robbery.  McDonald failed to appear on the day of trial and was tried in his absence.  McDonald has not been sentenced and he is currently a fugitive from justice. 

Three other individuals who participated in the robbery entered pleas of guilty prior to McDonald’s trial and agreed to testify against McDonald.  The three defendants were:  Drodriquez Lamond Williams, DeWayne Eugene Mannery and Harvea L. Motallebi.  Williams pled guilty to two counts of robbery and one count of felony evasion.  Mannery and Motallebi pled guilty to two counts of armed robbery.  All three were sentenced to 30 years in prison, with fifteen years suspended. 

            On May 5, 2014, the Madison Police Department responded to a 911 call in the Cypress Lake Subdivision regarding two individuals who were robbed at gunpoint in their garage.  The gunmen stole an iPhone, cash and a wallet from the couple.  The couple, who own King Buffett, were followed home from work after the robbers watched them leave the restaurant. 

            When the Madison Police Department arrived they observed a white car approaching the gate of the subdivision at a high rate of speed.  As the vehicle came through the gate and officers pulled their weapons and ordered the individuals in the car to stop.  The vehicle came to a stop, but before officers could remove the four suspects from the vehicle, the car sped away, almost hitting the officers. 

 A chase began on Highland Colony Parkway that took them through Madison, Ridgeland and Jackson neighborhoods before being called off due to the dangerous nature of the pursuit.  However, officers were able to obtain a license plate number of the car and traced the vehicle to Drodriquez Williams who lived in Jackson. 

            Williams was later arrested and questioned by law enforcement.  He admitted he was involved in the robbery and told police the names of the other three individuals that were with him.  The victims were then shown a photo lineup and were able to pick the defendants out of the lineup.  Police also lifted prints from William’s car which placed the defendants recently in the vehicle.

            Guest stated, “Working with law enforcement, we have been able to remove three very dangerous criminals from our streets, and once McDonald is apprehended he will also call prison home.  We are confident these arrests and convictions have helped break-up a ring of armed robbers who were targeting foreign nationals.  These defendants are suspects in other cases similar to this one in the metro area.”

            Guest concluded, “The Madison Police Department did an outstanding job in every area of this case and should be applauded for their efforts.  We are blessed to have such outstanding men and women who place their lives in jeopardy to protect us from dangerous criminals like these.”

District Attorney Michael Guest was sworn into office in January 2008 and represents the Twentieth Judicial District, Madison and Rankin Counties.  For more information regarding the District Attorney’s office, please visit

"Law enforcement is on alert for a car with a possible dead child inside.

A Millersville police officer pulled over a vehicle on Interstate 65 Wednesday afternoon for a registration violation.

The driver presented a Saudi driver's license and told the officer his child was dead in the trunk and he wanted to bury him in accordance with his Muslim faith.

The officer then asked to see the child, but the driver refused and told him that was against his religion. The officer let the driver go and reported it to his superiors.

"The new officer didn't want to interfere with the Muslim burial ceremony," Millersville Police Chief David Hindman said. "Didn't want to cause a scene in the midst of a mourning."

Hindman said he would have done things differently if someone had told him there was a dead child in the trunk."

Expect the South Jackson redneck, rube ass John Reeves to be quoted in the paper tomorrow, as he begs for attention and being branded as the Buford Pusser of Cypress Lake.

Why is forced male sexual enslavement always an appropriate punishment, better question... Why are you so obsessed with it?

I lived in this neighborhood when this happened. About two weeks before, I was gone and my roommate called and said our power box had been messed with and someone had cut our power on a Saturday when I was out of town. The police came and said "it was just kids pulling a prank" and they'd done it all over the neighborhood. My roommate apparently was fine with this and didn't question it, but it pissed me off because I knew they didn't even look into it. As stated, two weeks later, that happened.

At the time, I was pissed about how they chased the people. There's an entrance and an exit and a median in between. Why the police didn't simply block the exit with their car still makes no sense to me. Then they followed them until they hit their jurisdiction and turned around (what was reported) then). Now, I'm glad they got the license and were able to catch the others, but at the time I was worried they would only catch the one.

Glad they caught them (really), but do wish for a better response next time from Madison PD. Giving someone a generic excuse like, "it was a bunch of kids" (and it may have been, but the point is they didn't look into it) is not good enough.

Roomate? They allow rental property in Madison county? Who'd a thunk it?

8:22....can you spell "partners"?

No. I was in school at UMC and lived with a friend that owns a house in the neighborhood. Not "partners", just a better deal than paying $900 to rent some apt. and praying to sublease it when I was doing rotations.

It's a common practice, believe it or not. I saved money, lived in a gated community, and didn't worry about subleasing or my stuff when gone while I essentially helped to pay that person's mortgage and split the utilities. Quick commute, too.

Guest commends Madison PD for excellent work? Not having the foresite to block the path of a stopped vehicle full of people (speeding away)? Approaching a car only to have it speed off? That's excellent police work? There are usually nine cars involved in every Madison 'roll em'. Where were the other eight during this 'excellent work'?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
