To catch a thief

Local restaurants have been hit by a small crime wave lately.  Jeff Good posted this message and security camera photos on his public Facebook page:


I REALLY hate to use Facebook this way, but... we have to.

There has been a crime wave where a very agile and crafty thief has been breaking into area restaurants by turning off all power to the building, CUTTING A HOLE in the roof (through the AC units, through the kitchen vent hood, through any access he can find) and DROPPING IN THROUGH THE CEILING, and looking for cash and valuables. A number of restaurants and shops have been hit in the Jackson area.

Attached, please find some pictures from video surveillance. He is a white mail, tattoo down the right arm, may be balding a bit on top. Be sure to click through ALL the pictures.. there are inside and outside shots.. close up and far away. Recognize this man? Please contact Commander James McGowan of the Jackson Police Dept. 601.960.1234 or jmcgowan@city.jackson.ms.

White mail, huh? Should be easy to catch --- watch your malebox! Derp.

Is it 2 different guys, or the guy change shirts at some point? Black shirt in some pics, light colored shirt in other pics.

Same poor resolution as the last security camera footage that was on this site. Does anyone actually get a conviction using such blurry footage?

The story line says he has broken into several restaurants dumbass. He probably changes clothes periodically. You reckon?

isn't it possible to have a back-up power source for these cams in case the power is cut?

Hey 1:49 PM, I sure wish that you were a detective on my dream team, not.

Easy. Just go scope out the sams lounge and that dump of a hotel where they found the dead body couple weeks ago from drug od. I'm sure he hangs there.

Hey 2:08, this is "dumbass". Yes, there are been multiple incidents at multiple restaurants, but all of these images are from the same burglary at the same restaurant. Either the guy changed shirts in the middle of the burglary, or there were 2 guys.

And you have all these 'factoids', how?

That looks like the front counter at Beatty Street.

Isn't Jeff Good one of the owners of Sal and Mookies? They were in big support of Stokes' comments about throwing rocks and bricks at the police.

@ 8:26 FALSE.

12:50, at least we can rule out manila envelopes as potential suspects.

Hey 5:32, I've got the "factoids" because I took these screenshots with my very own cell phone from the security camera footage and sent them to Jeff Good. He then posted them on social media, and Kingfish subsequently picked up the story. That being said, I do feel like a "dumbass" for not noticing the different color tshirts before now.

@9:13 I am the poster at 8:26. I asked the manager of Sal and Mookies what he thought about Stokes' comments (a day or so after Stokes made them) and he said they were 100% in agreement with Stokes. He said he felt that outside law enforcement has no business being in Jackson. When I asked if his ownership felt the same way, he said they absolutely did. Admittedly I did not talk to Good himself. I called Good because I thought he was the owner and he never returned my call.

I can mark Sal and Mookies off of my list of places to go.

@ 11:36 - Where else can one pay close to $30 a pitcher for beer made a few blocks away?

Anonymous said...

their PBR pitchers are a good deal.

I made the mistake of getting a craft beer large pitcher once and wow, 12:43 I agree it was a $27 pitcher. I could not believe it.

I guess they have New York beer there too.

It's a good place though.

The intruder actually looks a little like Jeffie. It might be a publicity stunt. Or it could be Jerry Lake who wrote the book on how to get the most out of holes in the roof.

Just to clarify for those questioning whether he changed shirts or whether there was maybe more than 1 suspect, the answer is neither. The interior footage was in night vision, therefore making his dark colored shirt look white. All the dark colored stuff he has all over him after he gets inside is actually white sheetrock dust from busting through the ceiling. The outdoor camera footage was not in night vision.

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.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
