Clinton auto burglars busted

The Clinton Police Department issued the following press release:

On May 26, 2016, Clinton Police responded to a residence on Beverly Drive for a theft that occurred in the overnight hours of May 25-26.  Simultaneously, officers responded to the report of two (2) auto burglaries around the corneron Normandy Drive.  At approximately 11:54 A.M.on May 26, Regions Bank contacted Clinton Police and advised a subject identified as Jimmy Hughes was attempting to cash checks stolen from the auto burglaries that were reported on Normandy Drive. 

Upon arrival at Regions Bank, Clinton Police detained Jimmy Hughes. While detaining Hughes, officers noticed exercise equipment in the back of Hughes vehicle that was reported stolen from Beverly Drive.  After being placed in custody, additional stolen property was identified as stolen from the Normandy Drive.  As a result of the investigation Clinton Police arrested Hughes along with a second subject identified as Larry Konnor Hawkins.

The Clinton Police Department has charged Jimmy Wayne Hughes, 20 YOA, of Clinton, Mississippi with two (2) counts of auto burglary and one (1) county of Petit Larceny. Additional charges could be pending against Hughes.

Clinton Police have charged Larry Konnor Hawkins, 18 YOA, of Clinton, Mississippi with two (2) counts of auto burglary, one (1) count of petit larceny and possession of a controlled substance (schedule 1). Additional charges could be pending against Hawkins.

In these cases, as well as most, the cars and garages were open and provided an opportunity for theft. Each vehicle that was “broken” into was left unlocked with a wide array of property and valuables left in plain view. The thieves were simply presented with an “opportunity” to steal property.

Clinton Police are seeking the partnership of residents in reducing the opportunity for theft. Partnering together will improve the quality of life in Clinton by reducing the opportunity for theft.

Residents are reminded to lock doors at your residence or on your vehicle. Vehicle doors left unlocked provide an opportunity for someone who most likely wouldn’t have forced entry into a locked vehicle.

Police Chief Ford Hayman noted that, more often than not, auto burglaries are the result of vehicles being left unlocked. 

“An unlocked vehicle is an opportunity for a thief, especially if valuables are left in plain view,” Hayman noted. Aside from locking your vehicle, take a moment to remove valuables: wallets, purses, guns, electronics, sporting equipment, etc. from your vehicle. Removing and securing your property is eliminating an opportunity for a thief.”
Hayman also noted that the same rule of thumb applies to carports and garages. Residents are encouraged to take a moment and lower their garage doors even if they are only running across town on errands.

If you have an open carport, lock your valuable lawn equipment and property in a storage room. Do not leave lawn equipment in your yard for extended periods of time. Deterrence and prevention can be easily achieved if you simply adhere to taking an extra moment and securing your property.

Councilman Stamps needs to shut his mouth. Its a little too large and loud. Glad CPD caught these guys. Looks like Hawkins is a bit high or is he just sleepy.

It will be interesting to see if RSS does prosecute whites quicker than he does blacks. Let's watch this unfold.

We should be praying instead of name calling .We are not to judge anyone. I am sure most here talking will regret that when they are being judged by God.

Praying will not solve criminality nor fix potholes.

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.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? 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. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
