Third Time's a Charm for Ridgeland PD

 The Ridgeland Police Department issued the following statement and mug shots. 

Monday evening Ridgeland PD Officers located a stolen Honda Accord near Old Canton Road and attempted to apprehend the driver.  The vehicle fled and the pursuit was terminated due to the danger to our motorists. Madison County Sheriff’s Department Deputies located the stolen Accord on the Natchez Trace where it fled from them back into the jurisdiction of Ridgeland.  Efforts to disable the vehicle were made and the vehicle continued into Jackson and the pursuit was again terminated to protect the public.  


Officers located the stolen Honda Accord today, Tuesday, 9/12, at approximately 3:12pm, near South Wheatley Street in the City of Ridgeland.  The suspect, when officers attempted to stop the stolen Accord, fled once again.  His erratic driving placed the public in danger and the pursuit was once again terminated to protect other motorists.  The vehicle was spotted on Lenard Avenue by a Department of Public Safety helicopter who alerted our units to the area.  Ultimately, our K9 and K9 Handler apprehended all three suspects after the driver attempted to flee in the stolen vehicle by driving on the railroad tracks that run parallel to Highway 51 in Ridgeland. 


The driver is a juvenile and he has been detained in a Juvenile Detention Center.  The other suspects were charged as adults.  Mugshots and charges are attached. 


Special thanks to the MS Department of Public Safety and to the Madison County Sheriff’s Department.  Without the teamwork of multiple agencies these dangerous criminals would still be at large.

There should be a state law that if you’re underage and commit a felony then your mugshot should be made public. It’s only right. The public has a right to know who these criminals are even if they are underage. If he was driving and was placing the public in danger then he is old enough to suffer the consequences.

So how many additional crimes did the “no chase policy” allow them to commit? The only reason they were caught is the wreck because they thought they were being chased. That seems like an awful plan, RPD.

After viewing their photos, I find it hard to believe that he is 18 and she is 19.

Don’t even think about coming into Ridgeland.

39212… south Jackson. I live in NE Jackson and quite frankly I’m sick of all the criminals from canton and south and west Jackson passing through NE Jackson Madison ridgeland areas committing crime. I’m so sick of it. Also I’m glad they were busted in Madison co because it’s our best option that they won’t walk.

I know criminals of this nature are not normally the sharpest knife in the drawer, but how low of an IQ do you have to return to the area this many times in the same stolen vehicle?

North East Jackson has just as many criminals as any other part of Hinds, Madison or Rankin counties.

Who knows, 8:08am, you could be one of them ! !

There is no No Chase Policy involved. RPD stopped pursuit out of an abundance of care for involving innocent civilians. That said, all three need to be charged with Felony Fleeing as well as Malicious Mischief-Felony for tearing up the stolen vehicle.

I agree with the other posters statement about the juvenile. If He/She is involved in any felonious activity, picture should be up on the board as well.

Only thing I’m guilty of is being accused of being a loan shark because I have payday loan stores in Mississippi and Louisiana. Just do what the law tells me I can do. Nothing illegal goes on. Is that why you’re telling me I’m a criminal? I work hard have 3 sons at JA and enjoy a nice lifestyle and my family. Thanks for being smug.

Many people must think thugs and thieves are especially stupid and are incapable of learning. I will agree they are not the most intelligent but even they can learn if they flee from the cops they stand a very good chance of getting away. Why would they stop when they know if the drive faster the cops will stop chasing them. I am beginning to think the thugs and thieves are more intelligent than those who have the job of protecting us.

Don't know why KF will allow a senseless troll like 8:43, with no contribution, to post and then allow the same poster (obvious) to act like someone else liked their previous post. Think everybody sees that... except KF.

9:02, Look in the mirror. When you point your finger there are always 3 pointing back at you.

Smug is as Smug does.

I was sitting in a parking lot waiting for my husband when the helicopter started circling and police cars started swarming the area. Soon after multiple officers ran past my car chasing one of these criminals. Within minutes they had him in handcuffs. Ridgeland PD and all the assisting agencies handled this phenomenally.

The police report says the man was born in Starksville, MS.

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.
