Bad boyz, bad boyz......

The Mississippi Department of Corrections, Madison Police Department, and Jackson Police Department issued the following press releases and pictures.  It was a busy day on the crime-fighting front so they were combined into one post.


MDOC

MDOC CONDUCTS SIXTH SHAKEDOWN THIS MONTH

JACKSON - Cocaine, crystal methamphetamine, unauthorized footwear, and a stockpile of canteen items were found when Mississippi Department of Corrections officers searched Carroll-Montgomery County Regional Correctional Facility today as part of Operation Zero Tolerance.

The Vaiden facility is the sixth to be searched since Corrections Commissioner Pelicia Hall instituted the statewide contraband crackdown earlier this month.

Hall, whom the Senate confirmed on Tuesday to head the prison system, said all facilities will be subject to an unannounced shakedown.

“I am determined to see that we eliminate as much contraband as possible for the safety of staff and inmates,” Hall said. “We recognize that inmates alone are not responsible for the illegal items, that staff, visitors, and vendors bring in contraband. During my confirmation hearing, for example, I told how one smuggled cell phone could go for $3,000. But my administration is focused on not only pointing out our challenges but also finding ways to address them.”

K-9 units from both Central Mississippi Correctional Facility and Mississippi State Penitentiary at Parchman were used to secure the regional facility based in Carroll County so officers from both Institutions and Community Corrections could conduct the search.

Other contraband items at Carroll-Montgomery include cell phone accessories, scales, tattoo kits, tobacco, cigarettes and cigarette lighters, two shanks, and various nuisance contraband, such as necklaces, belts, and medication.

Prison officials suspect that inmates caught with large quantities of canteen are likely engaging in extortion. Inmates caught with contraband face disciplinary action.

Hall has extended the renewed security effort to inmates posting on Facebook and the search of visitors and vendors upon entrance to prison grounds.

The Carroll-Montgomery County facility is one of 15 regional jails in the state prison system. On Thursday, its inmate population was 264; the maximum count is 280.

The five other shakedowns have occurred at Wilkinson County Correctional Facility, East Mississippi Correctional Facility, Marshall County Correctional Facility, Yazoo County Regional Correctional Facility, and Holmes-Humphreys County Regional Correctional Facility.

JPD

On Wednesday, March 29, 2017, at approx. 9:30 AM, Jackson Police Officers responded to Kolbs’ Cleaners on State St. regarding an auto theft. Upon officers’ arrival, it was learned that a white Ford F-250 had been stolen from this location. A gray Nissan Pathfinder was observed at the scene occupied by at least three unidentified black males. One of the subjects exited the Pathfinder and gained entry into the F-250. Both vehicles were observed leaving the business together.

At approx. 9:35 AM, a Precinct 4 officer observed a gray Nissan Pathfinder matching the description of the suspects’ vehicle near the area of Fortification St. near Whitworth St. There were two unidentified black males occupying the vehicle. Upon the occupants observing the officer’s presence, the driver of the vehicle ran a stop sign and collided with a van. The occupants of the Pathfinder were detained and identified as Michael Evans-33 and Dequante Green-24. Both subjects sustained minor injuries and were transported to a local hospital for medical treatment. The driver of the van was also treated for minor injuries. Several items were recovered from the Pathfinder that was linked to stolen Ford F-250 to include a pistol.

At approx. 10:30 AM, the stolen white Ford F-250 was recovered and unoccupied in the area of Jefferson St. which is in close proximity to where the accident occurred. Officers believe there may be at least one other unidentified suspect linked to this incident.

Both Michael Evans and Dequante Green have extensive arrests histories with the Jackson Police Department. They are both currently out of jail, on bond for a series of felony charges. They also had felony warrants for their arrests from other agencies. Upon their release from medical treatment, they could both face auto theft charges and possibly weapons charges as well.

“The citizens of Jackson deserve some relief from Dequante’ Green and Michael Evans.”
-Chief Lee Vance

No comments yet on the shooting at a city park in west Jackson reported as the results of a fight over a dice game. A shame that JPD and HSO cannot keep the city parks from being places for daily gambling, drugs and drinking. Jaycee Park located on Bailey Ave. and Wood Street host gambling, drugs and alcohol every afternoon between the hours of 3pm and 6 pm. Neighborhood children are not allowed by parents to use the park due to the illegal activity. JPD and HSO are unable or uninterested in providing a presence to keep the gambling and
Drinking/drugs out of the park. Just a matter of time until a neighborhood child or parent gets shot in this park. A real shame that the city can't police the city parks.

Shouldn't they have shakedowns unannounced at correctional facilities daily? Why is this news? Inmates with nothing but time are gonna do this. Pelcia, girl if you going to have a press release please, please include more content than this type of comment...
"Prison officials suspect that inmates caught with large quantities of canteen are likely engaging in extortion. Inmates caught with contraband face disciplinary action."
FYI been the way things operate in jails, prisons, and correctional institutions since they began. We realize this is all new to you as you have no background in the Correctional Field but this is not new and you are not doing anything great by gathering contraband from inmates. You are earning the money the taxpayers are paying you. News would be for you to give the citizens and accounting of how many offenders assigned to the Community Corrections Division were out running a muck while you had them off doing Institutional Jobs. (so officers from both Institutions and Community Corrections could conduct the search). Some days it appears like you believe this people are in the Care, Custody and Control of MDOC because they arrived late to Sunday School Class. SMH

The SIXTH time Commissioner Pelecia Hall has pulled Probation/Parole officers from supervising felons in the co.munity to look for contraband at prisons brought in by the guards. Apparently this is fine with the deputy commissioned of community corrections. I have heard that it is actually her idea because the officers do t have enough work to do. The next time you hear about a parolee committing a crime you can be proud that his parole officer spent 2 work days looming for drugs and shanks that lprison guards have provided their inmates.

Otis Don't Stay Hear No More.. said...

Since the beginning of time. Use your best, imaginary Rod Serling voice here. The inmate, L. Jones 66432A, tell the slightly above minimum wage guard that Lucretia will give him nine hundred dollars on Wednesday next, at the Lo Sto in Hooterville Junction, out beside the propane tank. All he have to do, then, is bring the package Lucretia give to him and hand it off to Lucky Strike, aka Latrekarius Jones 66432A. Said package hold as contents two cell phone, 3 packs Marlboro Special Red, one steel letter opener and some battries plus a Post-It-Note bearing the lipstick signature of Lucretia.

And this new-gurl-in-charge gone bust-down these peoples? Hold on whilst I tie a chain to the cell winder and hook it to my truck bumper.

Why are probation officers working in institutions? why does the governor allow such poor managment? Why did the was this lady confirmed to be commissioner. Somebody somewhere must have compromising photographs of someone important......................
disgusting. more of the same at MDOC. that agency can't catch a break.

Sounds like a lot of readers here must be jail guards and their side gig is being infringed.

As The Door Revolves.. said...

Actually, 6:34, since the beginning of time, state agency employees recognize bullshit for what it is, up to and including the appointment of unqualified persons to head their agency. Nobody in any agency (others than those who receive the rewards) likes to see appointments made on a purely political basis.

Looks like the MDOC dead horse beater was up late last night.

6.34 am: No. Taxpayers who are tired of thugs running wild in the community. Call MDOC to complain about a thug and hear.... We are doing the best we can. File a police report. Why should I have to file a police report? The d%%% parole officer should be doing there job!

Wait, is that the Kolb's Cleaners in FONDREN??? THE Fondren? Heaven on Earth where white and black hold hands and sing Kum Ba Yah and crime is a mere perception? Can't be!!

That MUST be a misprint. It HAS to be in Madison or Ridgeland or one of those other outlying communities that are full of racists and don't have great restaurants out the ass.

Really? said...

The arrests appear to be racially motivated. 💯 % were black. This is crazy

Bless your heart, 8:00 a.m....not had your daily meds yet!

Anonymous said...

@10:27am thank you for your concern. You are correct in that I missed my daily medication. My freelance pharmaceutical representative crashed his gray Nissan Pathfinder into a van over near Fortification and Whitworth and the racist cops arrested him because he's black.

Good thing about living in Fondren is that there are plenty of people who are on the same meds as I am, so I'll get my fix...oops, prescription filled by lunchtime. If not, Dequante should be out of jail and back in business by 2:30. I'll just read the JFP until then.

Dead Horse Beater says:

Sooner or later the stinking carcass of the MDOC horse will allow someone 'important" or "who matters" in the community to be injured or killed. When that happens there will be much hell raising and dismay that an agency and its community corrections department are in such a mess. Before that happens how many regular people will suffer because of MDOC?

Your right. this is a dead horse. if someone would bury this one we could move on to another one.

PittPanther said...

Shakedowns at the prisons are interesting, especially since they almost never happened before Hall got the top gig. Guys in prison wearing Timberlands and Air Jordans...

We never hear of any guards being fired for contraband, or vendors being disciplined for bringing in contraband. I guess it's too hard to hire COs at near minimum wage, so you can't fire them. And no way the prisons are going to clamp down on the inmates, because you can't rely on minimum wage COs to control things. So the prisons become holding pens where prisoners are allowed to do whatever they want, as long as they don't get too out of control.

Some of you are just racist and sexist. Pelecia Hall and Kristie Gunthers are strong capable women doing a great job. Just ask any employee in the agency and they will tell you.

The headline of this article reminded me of this:

Bad Boyz...Rad Toyz

Seen on the rear winder of a pick-em-up truck with a Mississippi State license plate and a 300+ lb driver wearing a camo ball cap and Oakleys.

wearing a camo ball cap and Oakleys

I think that's a requirement for living in Mississippi, along with the untucked Columbia PFG bonehead shirt over jeans and neon colored running (IRONY!) shoes. The Oakleys go over the brim when you step indoors, unless you're Mr. Cool.

Not sure what this has to do with redneck Nicnar peeps. I thought the thread, and others, were about an incompetent black woman heading up a state agency.

Axe anybody? You've witnessed their posts for days on end Goober.

Anonymous said...

@ 12:49 what are you smoking? I want some. Everyone in that agency knows they are both incompetent. The entire department is laughable and non functioning and Flip Flop Feel should be ashamed of himself.

Anonymous said...

11:26, this is 12:49 here. You are absolutely right. I just wondered what how ma.ny people would respond. Disappointing. It has taken you more than 2 days to respond. "Silence is Consent". That's the only reason for those 2 people to be laege and in charge. People should speak up and make the Guv AND legislature listen......MDOC is capable of being far more than it is.. The agency just needs new leadership. Reckon the guv or legislature care? do they read this blog?

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

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.
