A teenager out on bond after a Jackson rape case is back behind bars. This time he was arrested by Flowood Police and charged with one count of carjacking.
Just after 6:00 Monday night, a woman leaving the Flowood Bed, Bath and Beyond was carjacked. Police say Devine had a knife with him, took the woman's keys and stole the car. It was located soon after at the nearby retirement community, The Blake. That was thanks to GPS on the woman's phone that was left in the car.
Fingerprints from car the matched Eddie Devine, Jr's.
In April, Jackson Police said 16-year-old Eddie Devine, Jr. and another teen carjacked a 29-year-old woman from the Hallmark Gardens Apartments. Devine was charged with kidnapping, carjacking, sexual battery and rape. He has since been granted bond.
Flowood Police Chief Johnny DeWitt admits the crime is unusual for the area.
"Officers were already all over the parking lot because of our beefed up patrol at this time of year and people everywhere at 6:05,” said Chief DeWitt.
Where have we seen this guy before?
Judge Hardwick did her job: no bond for this scumbag. Time to pull the file and see why he is back on the street so he could terrorize someone else.
