Scam alert

The Clinton Police Department issued the following statement:

The bad guy

The Clinton Police Department would like to alert the public to a potential con artist wanted for a recent scam that could lead to larceny charges for the suspect. According to Detectives with the Clinton Police Department, complainants have reported on three separate occasions that Kendrick Barrell Wells of Richland, MS., has perpetuated a scam against Clinton residents.

Posing as a Veteran, Wells tells the victim that his car has been towed and he needs a ride to retrieve it. Wells then tells the victim that he needs money to get his car out of impound, because his wallet was in his vehicle when it was towed. Wells states that he will give the money back once he gets to his car and retrieves his wallet.

At this point the victim usually proceeds to the bank to retrieve funds to loan wells. Upon leaving the bank, Wells takes the victim to a location where he tells them to wait while he retrieves his wallet. At this time Wells absconds with the money and does not return to repay the victim.

Wells has been able to con as much as $160 out of each victim. Clinton Police are familiar with Wells, having dealt with him on a similar situation in 2015.  CPD requests residents who suspect that they may have been a victim of Wells or a similar scam, to report the matter to Law Enforcement or the Clinton Police Department at (601) 924-5252.

Wells is described as a 32 year old black male standing 5’9” tall. Wells last known address was Richland, MS. CPD encourages residents to be extra vigilant when providing rides and/or loaning money to strangers.

You can't go to Target at County Line, Home Depot in same strip center or anywhere near Best Buy on County Line w/out somebody walking up to you saying they are from Yazoo City, Hattiesburg etc and had to bring somebody to hospital and now don't have gas $$ to get back, or they broke a fan belt and need a new one. I watched a guy one day w/ a woman tailing him an aisle or two over in parking lot as he tried to get $$ from people to buy a spare for his car out on the interstate. Do Not give these vermin $!

12:09, Bear Buy has been gone from County Line for two years. What nonsense lies are you telling? Say anything to make Jackson look bad? What's in it for you? Are you a Madison realtor?

Well, I *have* been accosted by the middle aged black man that was laid off from his job at McDades as the meat market butcher who was from Carthage with his out of gas car in the Piccadilly parking lot on I-55. Its the same sad story or a variant thereof.

One day, KF will allow edits to comments, so we can fix obvious spelling errors.

Best Buy, you idiots.

One day people will not waste time posting about all of the mistakes people make when posting on a blog. If you can understand what the person is talking about it is good enough. This isn't a class and I do hope KF has not hired some of these people to spend their time correcting blogs.

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.

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.
