Brecon Hoods Still at Large

 The suspects in the Brecon Drive armed robbery last week are still at large but JJ has been able to obtain some information on the suspects.  

This car was spotted cruising through the same neighborhood last night. 


The vehicle is registered to Eddie McGowan.  Surprise, surprise, McGowan has a rap sheet and is a graduate of the Hinds County Catch & Release program: 

* March 23, 1999: Arrested for armed robbery.  A Hinds County grand jury indicted McGowan but no action was taken on the case until it was remanded in 2008. 

* 2003: Arrested and indicted for armed robbery, kidnapping, and four counts of house burglary.  He pleaded guilty to the house burglary and kidnapping charges in 2004.  The Court sentenced him to serve 50 years in prison but suspended 20 years of the sentence.  He probably only had to serve 50% of the sentence so he would be free by now. 

* July 7, 2003: Aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer.  The resolution of the charge is unknown. 

* August 2003: Indicted for armed robbery. The Court sentenced him to serve 15 years in prison.  He was to serve the sentence concurrently to the other sentences.  The crime was probably of the 50% variety.  

* May 2022: Arrested for being a felon with a firearm.  He has not been indicted.  

 McGowan is currently free on parole. 


JJ reported May 16: 

An armed robbery took place last night on Brecon Drive.  An elderly couple arrived at home with their two grandchildren only to be greeted by two black males armed with what were probably AK-47 or AR-15-style firearms.  The victims said the suspects were dressed in all-black clothing.  

The hoodlums took phones and wallets.  A magazine and the grandfather's phone were found in the yard.   JPD arrived 35 minutes later.  The suspects fled on foot.

Chief Davis is all over this as soon as he leaves JPD he will give needed info on these fools to the US Marshals! He didn’t want the Mayor angry at him during his retirement party!

This information was made available to JPD investigations at 8:30 this morning. They have not returned the call as if 5:21 this afternoon to obtain the details as if 5:22 today

Brecon has quick get-away, especially toward 55, so slow-gate West end with a camera. The gate opens to all, but slowly while camera records each vehicle, front and back. Camera the East end.

Hopefully his next victim gives him what he so richly deserves.

So he was able to catch a new gun charge and bail out while on parole? He definitely doesn’t give a f**k now and is gonna terrorize the town since he’s out and knows he’s about to go back for 5 years. It used to be hard to get out of jail now it’s much harder to get in, much less stay in. Freakin libs

Seems nice said...

JPD will have this solved any decade now.

It is amazing that JPD can’t publish this but Jackson Jambalaya can! My Madison county property is appreciating.

It's not the cops - it's the abysmal state of the Hinds County judiciary. Why is someone with that record out on parole?

Just because McGowan has a long rap sheet, and it's his car, and looks like him, and probably is him, just because of that, how can you say it might be him? Next you'll be saying Jackson has a crime problem, only a few murders everyday, and everyone's offended, sheeshhh

We owned a business in Jackson 7 years ago. There were several break-ins. There was video footage, but no one was ever caught. To my knowledge, nothing was ever investigated. Crime is much worse now, but it has been a long time since criminals feared being caught in the city of Jackson.

Let him go, he hasn’t been convicted of murder “YET”.

6:50, like you, many many many of us business owners have vacated jackson. If you notice I use lower case j when I reference jackson and will until the correct leadership similar to what was here many years ago returns and rebuilds. With what’s here now it’s not going to happen. Ain’t life good since we left? I know mine is much better now that I don’t have to pay an extortion fee to jps through furniture and fixture/ equipment taxes. What? Did I hurt someone’s feelings? I just really don’t give a damn if I do. I’m just so damn glad to be out of there.

He is just a perception of a career criminal. Right?

C'mon Kingfish! Isn't it obvious? This crime hasn't been solved because the former and/or new JPD Chiefs haven't had an opportunity to bounce their ideas off Lumumba yet.

I am pretty sure Barney Fife from the Andy Griffin show could solve this crime (if anybody in the city cared). On a positive note, in Jackson, there has been a substantial reduction in theft of drinking water.

The sooner you realize Chokwe and JPD don’t care about y’all, and it is by design, the sooner you’ll get it. They literally want this and to push y’all out so they can take your houses for a fraction of the cost. It’s planned. The give Zulu Foxtrots about y’all.

Love it when a plan comes together.

So Eddie went on quite the spree circa 2003 then did a little penance. Are we supposed to believe JPD and his parole officer have no idea where he is, cause something about that is really hard to believe. The 35 minutes it took JPD to respond to an armed robbery in progress on Brecon is starting to look sketchy. Is Eddie on Antar’s “Look The Other Way” list? CPD would’ve nabbed them at the scene. So what if there may have been an officer-involved shooting or two. When armed urban terrorists toting automatic assault rifles are committing mayhem with impunity, a little officer-involved shooting is fine by me.

want to bet the car gets reported stolen before JPD can apprehend these thugs

Then no they'll get off .....again

At least they're referred to, now, as hoods, not suspects, since there ARE no suspects.

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.
