Hinds Deputies bust burglary ring

The Hinds County Sheriff's Office issued the following statement:

Burglary Ring Busted

The Investigative Unit of the Hinds County Sheriff's Office has uncovered a suspected big rig theft ring.

Based on an ongoing investigation and acting on tips from anonymous sources, the HCSO was able to recover $61,000 in stolen merchandise.

Our office seized possession of a Kubota Tractor valued at $25,000 and a Kubota Track Loader valued at $36,000.

These items were stolen from various businesses in Hinds County and retrieved yesterday.

"Through organized efforts and good detective work, our deputies were able to take control of the property by issuing a search warrant," said Tyrone  Lewis, Sheriff, Hinds County. " We've been working this case for awhile now and more arrests are pending."

The suspected big rig theft ring has been wreaking havoc on businesses in Hinds County for some time now. "Exercising patience and good judgement are key ingredients to crime fighting," Lewis said. "Solving these types of crimes and all crimes in Hinds County is my number one priority."

65 year old Kenneth Eugene Allen of Terry, Mississippi was arrested and charged with possession of stolen goods. "The residents of Hinds County can rest assured that we won't stop until all of this type of activity is cleaned up," Lewis shared.

Ever since the hinds board changed to a majority who use their brain, things in the county are rolling in the right direction. And with the jail problems- it's gotta be hard to keep all those thugs in line. And perhaps repairs are now going to contractors rather than cronies

We will see soon enough. I have known many "honest" men who got caught up in a little Receiving Stolen Property operation(s) from time to time.

"...(Mr.) Allen is just (one) of many more unsuspecting unsuspecting victims of the sheriff s dept."

Would you care to name some or even one of the other victims?

Hey, 9:24AM, punctuation serves a purpose and is badly needed in your four and a half line 'sentence'. Try it and your statement would not only be MUCH easier to read, it could possibly make sense.

It IS true that past law enforcement agencies had to be paid off. I had numerous pieces of equipment stolen and they did nothing. I later found out that a former federal agent was using his connections in Hinds county to evade the possession of stolen merchandise charge and had began running a pretty lucrative theft ring. I guess he knew how to get around the law. He had a lot of people working for him. If you paid off the right people you got your equipment back. Myself and several business owners found out this to be the truth.

Really!... I love how all of you are so quick to judge someone, when in reality you have no idea the actual story. Those without sin shall cast the first stone! This man not only practically built Byram, with his bare hands but also was one of the first and oldest businesses there. This so called sheriff is obviously racist and tired of seeing only black people on the news, we can see it is election year. I know who I will be voting for! This is the most rediculous news I have ever heard. Maybe everyone should do a little research before having an opinion on the matter. Innocent until proven guilty, not in Hinds county!

Dear 8:14 are really ignorant. Kenny Allen DID NOT practically build Byram and he IS NOT one of the oldest businesses. Currently there are 10 businesses that were here longer than he was and if he had been caught stealing from me, I would have ended it right there! I will also let you know that the community of Byram has been around since the mid 1800's and there are a lot of people who still have relatives here that established by his community. As for myself, I can tell you that KEA DELI, that he owned was an eyesore and a nuisance to the public. Thank GOD it is being torn down as I write this!

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

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.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug.
