Toy Store Bandit Gets 40 Years

Rankin-Madison District Attorney John Bramlett issued the following statement.

Madison and Rankin Counties’ District Attorney John K. Bramlett, Jr., announced today that Erik Lamar Lewis was sentenced to 40 years for Armed Robbery of a Flowood toy store. Lewis has two prior felony convictions for armed robbery and will not be eligible for early release or parole. Lewis will serve the next 40 years day-for-day in the Mississippi Department of Corrections.

On October 27, 2017, Lewis entered a toy store in the Dogwood commercial area of Flowood, produced a gun and demanded money from the owner. The Flowood Police Department’s quick response and investigation recovered critical video surveillance of the individual and a description of the suspected get-away vehicle. On November 5, 2017, while on routine patrol a Flowood Police Officer spotted a vehicle matching the description in the Dogwood commercial area and investigated the vehicle.

The owner of the vehicle was determined to be Lewis who was a kitchen employee of an area restaurant. Lewis was located and detained. A search of the vehicle revealed items used during the robbery including the gun and clothing that matched the suspect in the video surveillance. Lewis was arrested. Law enforcement prepared a photo line-up and the toy store owner positively identified Lewis as the robber. Enhanced still images of the robbery from the video surveillance also revealed is was Lewis. When questioned by Flowood Police Officers Lewis made several incriminating statements regarding the robbery.

District Attorney Bramlett stated, “Lewis is a violent criminal who will now spend his next forty years in prison. This was his third armed robbery; there won’t be a fourth. We will not tolerate violent criminals who prey upon our citizens.”

District Attorney Bramlett concluded, “I commend the outstanding work of the Flowood Police Department throughout the investigation and prosecution of this case. Their hard work resulted in a violent and habitual criminal being removed from our streets.”

Rankin County justice is both swift and severe. Criminals beware. Residents of Jackson should stick to your side of the river unless you intend to behave yourself.

Criminal parasites should go prey on Clinton or something.

Attention Jackson!!! This is what you do-elect DAs and judges who are tough on crime and this is what happens. I would bet my paycheck if this was in Tommie Green’s court, this no good thug would be out today.

What about the overwhelming number of Jackson prep students that are from NE Jackson largely how about the new facial clinic in flowood owned by a physician that lives in Jackson and many of the Mississippi sports medicine ortho doctors in flowood they both live in Jackson and also several of the businesses owned by Jackson residents that are in flowood. Several plastic surgeons in particular. I wonder what you feel about them coming into flowood. The endodontist that did my implant has a clinic in flowood and lives in NE Jackson also. I guess your statement was a bit broad.

I assume those folks behave themselves, as the poster at 6:36 mentioned? Run down to the refill cafe and grab a turkey sandwich and see if they can learn you some punctuation.

@5:37 Did you just come in from an all-night bender? In no way, shape or form did @6:36 state what you claim they stated.

Get some sleep.........

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.
