Rankin County Sheriff Bryan Bailey issued the following press release:
The Rankin County Sheriff’s Office and Reservoir Police arrest four individuals for their involvement in at least 14 automobile burglaries that occurred over the past two months in the Reservoir area.
On Wednesday, February 18, 2015, Rankin County Investigators arrested a sixteen-year-old juvenile in connection with an automobile burglary where the victim’s credit card was used. Investigators were able to trace the stolen credit card back to the juvenile’s residence. The juvenile confessed to a total of five automobile burglaries over the past two months.
On Friday, February 20, 2015, the Rankin County Sheriff’s Department received a report of an automobile burglary in the Waterwood subdivision, as well as the Hidden Hills subdivision. In addition to these two burglaries, Reservoir Police responded to two automobile burglaries in the Waterwood subdivision. Property from these burglaries was dropped off at the Salvation Army in Jackson. Employees there recovered identification from the victims and notified the Sheriff’s Department. Reservoir Police and the Sheriff’s Department worked together on the burglaries and were able to develop a suspect vehicle description. A vehicle matching that description was observed on Grants Ferry Road at Spillway Road just after midnight on Sunday morning by Reservoir Police. The vehicle was stopped by Reservoir Police with the assistance of Sheriff’s Deputies. The driver of the vehicle was identified as DILLON ELLIS LEWIS, 23 years of age. The passenger in the vehicle was identified as PARKER AUSTIN GOUSSET, 18 years of age. Two stolen firearms were recovered from the vehicle in which LEWIS and GOUSSET were riding.
On Saturday, February 21, 2015, the Rankin County Sheriff’s Department received reports of five automobile burglaries in the Bellegrove Subdivision. In one of the vehicles, deputies recovered a driver’s license for LAJONATHAN JADARIUS DAVIS. DAVIS was seen at the residence where the license was recovered around midnight before the burglary was discovered. Investigators obtained a search warrant for DAVIS’ residence and took him into custody at his residence. (KF note: Dumbass)
LEWIS has a previous criminal history, including automobile burglary, controlled substance and shoplifting. GOUSSET’S criminal history includes possession of stolen property and controlled substance. DAVIS has no previous criminal history. LEWIS will be charged with four counts of automobile burglary, possession of stolen firearm, and possession of firearm by convicted felon. GOUSSET will be charged with four counts of automobile burglary and possession of stolen firearm. DAVIS will be charged with five counts of automobile burglary. All three are being held in the Rankin County Jail without bond, pending their initial appearance before Judge Kent McDaniel in Rankin County Court. The juvenile’s case will be presented before Judge Tom Broome in Rankin County Juvenile Court.
In all the burglaries, the vehicles were left unlocked. The items stolen included money, weapons, prescription drugs, clothing and electronics. Although these burglaries were solved in a timely manner, some of the property may never be recovered. Most upsetting is the fact stolen firearms have yet to be recovered and are most likely on the streets. I cannot over-emphasize the need to secure your vehicle and not leave items like firearms in your vehicle. I want to credit observant citizens that were willing to report information to the Sheriff’s Department and the collaborative work with the Reservoir Police in bringing a close to these cases.
Kingfish note: These crimes took place in Rankin County. TWO of the suspects are white. Got that, Kaze?
