Craigslist sale goes bad in Rankin.

Rankin County Sheriff Bryan Bailey issued the following press release:

Rankin Deputies Arrest Strong Armed Robbery and Assault Suspect

Rankin County Deputies were dispatched to Regions Bank located at 101 Spann Drive off of Spillway Road near Old Fannin Road at2:51 pmon Monday in reference to a physical altercation in the parking lot resulting in injuries.  Callers reported witnessing the suspect flee the scene headed toward Flowood on Old Fannin Road in a black 1996 Infiniti.  One witness was able to follow the suspect at a safe distance until Sheriff's Deputies were able to make visual contact with the suspect vehicle and intercept. Upon seeing the deputy, the suspect changed directions and headed north on Old Fannin Road attempting to evade law enforcement.  The suspect later identified as Jamaree Ellis Stevens 23 years of age from 3595 Holmes Avenue, Jackson, Mississippi. STEVENS was driving extremely reckless, passing vehicles in the center turn lane at high speeds.  Deputies on scene at the Bank reported to pursuing deputies that STEVENS would be facing strong armed robbery and aggravated assault charges.  Due the violent nature of the original offenses and he reckless manner in which STEVENS was fleeing, deputies took what actions was necessary to end the pursuit.  When STEVENS slowed to turn into a gas station, a deputy drove his patrol vehicle into the rear of STEVENS vehicle thereby pinning STEVENS vehicle between a metal sign and the patrol vehicle.  This was after STEVENS had slammed on brakes numerous times attempting to cause the deputy to wreck.  STEVENS was then taken into custody without further incident.

The victims in this case are a 56 year old female and a 65 year old male.  The couple arranged a meeting with STEVENS on Craigslist and agreed to meet at the McDonald's on Old Fannin Road at Spillway Road to sell some jewelry.  After seeing the jewelry, STEVENS acted as if he was going into the Regions Bank to withdraw money to pay for the jewelry.  When STEVENS exited the bank he asked to see the jewelry again.  At that time STEVENS robbed the couple of the jewelry.   When the couple fought back, STEVENS threw the female to the ground and the physically assaulting the male.  The male pursued STEVENS on foot and ran out of his shoes.  Due to the hot asphalt, the male received major burns to his feet causing his skin to peel.  When the female was thrown to the ground she sustained injuries including a possible broken leg.  Both were transported via AMR to area hospitals.

STEVENS has booked into the Rankin County Jail on charges of strong armed robbery, aggravated assault and felony evasion.  He will be held without bond pending his initial appearance before Rankin County Judge Kent McDaniel.

This is a great example of citizens and law enforcement working together to put an end to a criminals run.  Citizens were able to provide valuable information in a timely manner and made sure not to place themselves in danger. Now with District Attorney Guest and our Circuit Court Judges in Rankin County we will do everything possible to make sure STEVENS doesn't reoffend in Rankin County for a long time.

Kingfish note: I usually handle Craigslist transactions in the parking lot of a police station.

When you leave Hinds County you leave the protection of Robert Smith.

The suspect later identified as Jamaree Ellis Stevens 23 years of age from 3595 Holmes Avenue, Jackson, Mississippi.

Do your crime in Jackson. You have a better chance of getting away with it.

Unless those of you who fled for the burbs make some efforts to improve Jackson, these types of crimes will continue. We have way more criminals here than any of Rankin and Madison County have jail space. Yeah Guest will lock them up, throw the book at them, etc., but that's treating the symptoms, not curing the problem.

Great video on, shot by an onlooker. Thug was actually wearing a suit and ran a short distance after the crash. He was tased (on camera) "without incident". Taser use not even mentioned by WLBT. Good job Rankin County!

7:47 PM admits that Jackson is helpless to help itself.

There is plenty of jail space in Madison and Rankin counties. Because the Justice System works. They get charged, indicted, tried, convicted, sentenced and sent on their merry way to the big house before Robert Smith can find the paperwork to put before the Hinds grand jury.

@ 7:47 blah blah blah.. Same ole story. Ever wonder why Rankin cops profile people with Hinds county tags? I'd say the burbs are already helping out Jackson. These thugs that commit crimes in our cities will be locked up for many years, where they would just be no billed in Hinds county.

Yellow jumpsuit denotes a "violent offender".

Its mind-blowing to think that he would actually attempt this in Rankin County. Did he really expect any other outcome besides the one that resulted? He should have simply called the county jail and made reservations.

"Upon deploying my X26 Taser, the suspect became immediately compliant."

7:47, wrong

As more and more residents arm themselves, hopefully we can start to eliminate more Jackson residents that venture over the river.

Everyone wins!

7:47- We fled Jackson as we quietly chose not to raise our children in the Jackson enviroment. You called us racist, rednecks and forever called us out as being snobs. You got what you wished and voted for, "The City of Soul." Sorry, you can't have it both ways.

Rankin County is NOT Hinds County. You will be arrested, you will go before the bar of justice, and you will do the time. Stay home !

Follow The Money said...

Speaking of Gluckstadt Rezoning (and since Kingfish is staying away from the Madison Supervisors' race): Somebody mentioned that a Supervisor's job is tough; answering the phone, checking on culverts and tromping around in knee-high, snake infested weeds. The only snake handling J. Bell Crosby does is meeting, off the record, with Rudy, Banks and Griffin. His knowledge of culverts is limited to photos he's seen on flipcharts prepared by Rudy at 800 bucks an hour. Crosby once claimed to be making more money than any other Kroger manager in five states. Why would he shit-can that plum to ride around Madison County listening to Merle Haggard and ads from Mac's Fresh Market? The answer today is the same as it was the day he was first elected.....'follow the money'.

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.
