Chase Ends in Jackson

Update (10:45 PM): Got the scoop on what took place.  A Madison police press release should be forthcoming.  

 A woman in the Target parking lot reported to police she witnessed a carjacking.  The suspect was in a stolen black Charger.   JPD did not chase the suspects into Madison.  Three individuals  were in the charger.  Madison police picked up the pursuit.  The suspects exited at Nissan Parkway and crashed.  An accomplice picked up the suspects in a stolen black Mercedes SUV and fled back to Jackson.  

Madison and later Ridgeland police chased the suspects back to Jackson.  The Mercedes SUV crashed at White Oak and North State Street.  The suspects were arrested.  Guns were retrieves from the Mercedes and the Charger.  One suspect was a convicted felon while another wore an ankle bracelet. 

Original post: A carjacking took place at Target a little while ago. 

JPD chased the carjacker into Madison.  The carjacker wrecked on Old Jackson Road but a suspected accomplice picked him up and fled back to Jackson with Madison police in hot pursuit.  Other agencies joined in the chase.  The suspects wrecked at White Oak and North State Street.  Three more suspects were arrested.  JPD and Madison PD will charge the suspects.

Who else thinks Target will relocate to Madison county in 3…2…1….

You are probably right, 8:30. A few years ago Target said it would open north of 463 at Grandview. The area is still undeveloped, so it still could happen...

Several years ago Target was set to build in Madison, plans approved and everything ready but the financial condition at the time made them pull out. Seems they stopped building nationwide.

I wonder who will have them in court first? Jackson or Madison Pd...If Jackson gets them first they'll get blessed and released and Madison wont see them again.

Supertarget would be nice.

Can tell Target isn't spending any more money on the Jackson store. Bare minimum of cashiers, won't spend any money to remodel and provide self checkouts

I quit shopping in Jackson once they added the 1% additional sales tax

I'm at a loss trying to picture where there's undeveloped property at 463/Grandview, unless you're talking about the swamp (north of Burger King) where a prior Board shafted the county and rewarded a few property owners.

Madison leaders would be fools to recruit Target. It's a ghetto store that attracts the worst of Canton and Jackson.

I heard they were thwarted when Mary said they couldn’t have that tacky bullseye thing on their sign.

Target tried to come to Madison 3 times. All 3 times it was on property owned by Dr. Sethi at the northeast corner of the interchange (north of 463, between I-55 and Parkway East). All 3 times it would be Sethi selling the property to an out-of-state retail developer who would build the complex and Target would be the anchor store.

FIRST - group from Dallas. Jerry Jones of the Cowboys was one of the investors. They had a good plan but Mayor Mary didn’t want the Target logo to be red. She wanted it to be silver. Target was willing to acquiesce on logo size and location, but refused to budge on color. The deal fell apart.

SECOND - several years later a group from Tennessee (Nashville maybe). They didn’t get along with the Mayor at all. They tried to cut too many corners.

THIRD - several years after group #2, the first group tried again. Target was the anchor. The center would include TGI Fridays, Hobby Lobby, Academy Sports, and others. The Mayor allowed the red Target logo. The group had a good plan and the Mayor was on board. The developer and Madison were all in agreement. The problem this time is that the developer and Dr. Sethi couldn’t agree on the land price. They were fairly far apart on purchase price. So that killed the deal. They wanted to buy, and Sethi wanted to sell, but they couldn’t agree on price.

They do this in Madison because they know that it’s a sanctuary city. #SaveMadison

I see that Jackson held another youth anti crime summit Saturday at a west Jackson park. Youth were there to share ideas on what can be done to reduce crime. I wish Jackson leadership cared as much about crime as they do with skin color. It blows my mind
You don’t see this obsession in other places around the city of Jackson only in Jackson. I’m sick of it.

People, I have told you many times not to chase our citizens back to our city. How do you expect Jackson to survive if you destroy the only business ventures which are a success in Jackson?

Anonymous said...

Jackson is a world of halves and have nots. Rich or poor. Country club river hills with kids at private schools and beach condo or Oxford condo or dirt poor. I can tell you many physicians that live in Jackson and successful business owners and the NE Jackson mistletoe toe crowd but that’s not enough to help Jackson. Crime and lack of leadership is

June 5, 2022 at 9:00 AM - I'm sorry you didn't get shit for votes when you ran against Mary, but.....that's politics. Or, if I'm wrong, then you're Gerald Steen with a constant hard-on for everybody.

@9:00 am It's my understanding Dr. Sethi ownes road & land between Old Canton & Northpark Drive, (down from Fat Tuesday) is located.
The City of Ridgeland said they'd buy it however Dr. Sethi wants to much. Suffice it to say that land has turned into eyesore property.

Once again our once dine city slowly withers away on the vine….right behind will be a convoy of garbage trucks heading south and Jackson will be along the lines of a third world country.

So a carjacker heads north ruining that would be easy getaway?
Then when bails the idiots head back to Hinds County?
What were they smoking, popping or both?

Are there any cars in Jackson that are not stolen?

And why is a stolen Mercedes-Benz running around? MBUSA can track those cars down to an inch.

City leaders might want to hold their next "night out", or crime summit in the parking lot of Target on County Line.
Get out there where the "rubber meets the road."

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.
