 Rankin County Sheriff Bryan Bailey issued the following statement. 

On Sunday, January 2, 2022, Rankin County received a call for a business burglary at the Huff & Stuff gas station on Highway 18 in Puckett, MS.  Deputies responded to the scene and spoke to the store clerk.  While on scene deputies noticed that the front glass door had been smashed and merchandise in the parking lot.  When the store owner arrived, deputies were able to review video footage of the incident and identified a black male driving a beige colored GMC truck.  The suspect used his vehicle to ram the front door, breaking the glass.  The suspect then went in the store, grabbed merchandise and carried it to his truck, dropping some items in the process.

Deputies on scene called for an investigator.  Once the investigator arrived on scene, he was able to review the video and the items left in the parking lot.  The investigator was able to lift a fingerprint from one of the items left behind at the scene.  The fingerprint was then taken to the Mississippi Crime Lab who then analyzed the print.  That print came back to a TRAVIS PARKER of Jackson, MS.  A BOLO was then put out for PARKER and the vehicle used in the burglary.  


At approximately 8:00 p.m. Monday January 3, an officer with he Pearl Police Department observed a vehicle matching the description listed in the BOLO.  When the officer tried to stop PARKER, he fled.  Rankin County deputies joined Pearl PD in the pursuit which ended shortly thereafter.  PARKER was taken into custody and transported to the Rankin County Jail and charged with business burglary and receiving stolen property after it was discovered that the vehicle he was in was stolen.  Rankin County District Attorney Bubba Bramlett will bring PARKER before Rankin County Court Judge David Morrow for an initial appearance. 

The quick work and subsequent arrest of PARKER was made possible only through the great work of Rankin County deputies and investigators as well as the Mississippi Crime Lab and the Pearl Police Department.  This is yet another case that shows the cooperation in the law enforcement profession and what it can accomplish.  Sheriff Bryan Bailey would like to thank all of the agencies involved in the investigation and arrest of TRAVIS PARKER.

Maybe they should teach classes to Jackson/Hinds on how to do that.

These Jackistan crooks never learn that there will be no blessings in Rankin/Madison Counties.

Clearly a misunderstanding. Old Travis must've thought he was in California, where smash-and-grab is now an individual right.

Note to Jackistanians said...

Probably not the best day to try and "Eat Local" in Puckett as I'm pretty sure Billy Burgers is closed on Sunday.

Meanwhile in Jackson: "Yeah, I'll just talk to the boys down at the crime lab. They have us working in shifts. Leads!"

The french fries at Billy Burgers are great!

The large cheeseburgers are kick-ass as well.

I know what Judge Morrow is going to tell Travis. 10 year at Parchman Travis. When your hot....your hot.

Mr. Parker needed smokes and beer so bad, he stole a vehicle to create a drive-thru for the Spit & Git?

Sheriff Bailey did an exemplary job of reporting this event thoroughly and cogently, but then Rankin has so few insane crimes they have to import savages from Jackson.

Wait. They already had his fingerprints on file? So this guy, out of Jackson, already had a criminal record?

Waiting for the usual 'low hanging fruit' stooges to appear on this one. Give it a few moments.

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.
