He stood his ground

Rankin County Sheriff Bryan Bailey issued the following statement.

Armed 62 year old property owner holds bad guy at gunpoint until deputies to arrive.

Wednesday around 5:30 p.m. the Rankin County Sheriff's dispatch was notified, by a patrol deputy, he was on the phone with a complainant who advised his 62 year-old father was holding a man at gun point.

According to the caller, his father arrived at his property, off of Rosemary Road in south Rankin County, and noticed what appeared to be headlights shinning from behind his workshop. As the homeowner made his way behind the building, he found a 49 year-old male, Alexander Scott LANDRY, inside one of his vehicles.

The property owner, who holds a valid firearm permit, ordered LANDRY out of the vehicle and to lay on the ground while holding him at gunpoint. The property owner was able to physically tie LANDRY up and calmly waited for deputies to arrive.

 Once deputies arrived, they rescued LANDRY and secured him in a patrol vehicle. At that point, the property owner and deputies began to inventory the crime scene and found LANDRY not only burglarized seven vehicles on the property, but also forced entry into the workshop.

LANDRY was driving a red 1994 Jeep that had fresh gray paint on it. The vehicle was registered to an individual from Bolton, Mississippi. Investigators are working to determine if LANDRY was legally in possession of that vehicle.

Inside the Jeep was a number of tools, identified by the property owner as coming from his shop and vehicles. LANDRY had also stolen a ladder from the property and tied it on top of the Jeep.

LANDRY was booked into the Rankin County Jail charged with seven counts of vehicle burglary and one count of commercial burglary. LANDRY currently has two warrants for his arrest with the Gulfport Police Department for failure to appear. Those warrants may have an affect on his bond in Rankin County Court. LANDRY will be held without bond pending his initial appearance before County Court Judge Kent McDaniel. LANDRY reports his current address as 546 Dexter Drive, Flowood.

This is not the first time we have reported a Rankin County resident exercising their second amendment right and preventing themselves from being a victim. As with the other cases of this nature, we do not suggest personally confronting a bad guy. We do want to commend the property owner for being responsible gun owner.

"Once deputies arrived, they rescued LANDRY..." Rescued? Interesting choice of words. Then again, they wrote "Inside the Jeep was a number of tools..", improperly using was instead of were. Well, it's Rankin County after all; not a place I would expect to hear proper English on a regular basis. They may not speak well, but they tend to have plenty of firepower, so I'll let it pass.

Sure would be nice if the spelling and grammar Nazis would give it a rest.

Is there anyone who gives a damn about the spelling and grammar. If people can understand what you are trying to say that is good enough. If they cannot understand what you are trying to say they shouldn't be reading it.

Louis LeFleur:

"The number were 25" is wrong.

"The number was 25" is correct.

You are probably not capable of being embarrassed by your ignorance, although you should be.

!0:05, better work on your verb-subject agreement, but then again you've probably never heard of that. What a snob.

Mr. LeFleur, I intentionally used the word "rescue" in my press release because that is basically what it had become. I'm sure there are many locations in our Great State where it would not have been a rescue, but rather a matter of picking up the pieces. I am very proud of the Rankin County property owner in this case. He exercised his 2nd Amendment right and used excellent judgment in not using lethal force against LANDRY.

As for my misuse of the verb “was”, you are correct. That was a mental mistake made by me around midnight when I typed the press release. Mind you, this was after working since 0730 that morning. We, law enforcement officers tend to work extended hours doing what we do. I’m sure my grammatical error did not take away from the meaning of the press release. I write them, not to be reviewed by critics but to inform the wonderful and supportive citizens of Rankin County of crime and criminal activity in the best county in Mississippi.

Although we ain't always proper East of the Pearl, we look out for one another and fight crime with extreme vigor in our piece of paradise.

God bless.

Great point Officer Duke !

Yes, we do look out for each other and we should. The criminal cancer from all areas still haven't figured out that coming over here is hazardous to your career.

The folks at Rankin SO work their asses off! You see them everywhere and the results of apprehensions and resolved cases speak for themselves.

Plus, our DA is about as good as it gets. No "catch and release" here. If you get caught, your ass is going in the grease.

I would rather have a well trained law enforcement officer provide protection for my family, me and my property than an English major.

The fact that the homeowner was a "firearm permit" holder is completely irrelevant.

8:43, tell that to my neighbor. He lives in Rankin county. He has been arrested for drugs many times. He is released within a few days. A while back he was arrested for drugs then stole a cop car. He was in jail for a couple of days for that.
He keeps being released. When I asked a sheriff's deputy why they kept letting him out he said the thug tells them he has TB and they release him.

Undersheriff Duke,

Thanks for the clarification and please don't take offense. I was mostly poking fun at the stereotypical Rankin County resident. Being a Hinds County and even Jackson resident myself, I too often have to read the stereotypical comments about me/us by Madison and Rankin County residents on this blog, which are about as global and "off" as mine were about Rankin County residents. Your intentional use of the term "rescue" makes sense now. Your use of was instead of were is an increasingly common error and certainly understandable after a long and undoubtedly stressful day. Again, I was just poking fun and please believe me when I say that I have the utmost respect and sincere gratitude for LEOs and the work they do for all of us.

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.
