Stolen Heavy Equipment Recovered

 MDAC Commish Andy Gipson issued the following statement. 

This week, the Mississippi Agriculture and Livestock Theft Bureau (MALTB) recovered stolen agricultural equipment, with an estimated value of $210,000, in Hinds County.

On April 30, 2024, the Mississippi Agriculture and Livestock Theft Bureau was asked to assist in the investigation of a stolen Cat 299D3 skid steer stolen out of Copiah County. 

The initial report was taken by the Copiah County Sheriff’s Office. The equipment was being used to clear beetle infested timber along highways and utility right aways. During the course of this investigation, investigators uncovered information that led them to an area in rural Hinds County.

MALTB investigators, along with the Hinds County Sheriff’s Office investigations, Hinds County Patrol Division and Hinds County Emergency Operations Center, were able to locate and recover the stolen equipment. Though unrelated to the initial report, a 16-foot enclosed trailer that was reported stolen in Hinds County last month was also recovered at the scene.  

The skid steer with mulching head is valued at approximately $196,000, and the trailer is valued at approximately $14,000. MALTB Director Dean Barnard said, “This investigation and the recovery of $210,000 in combined ag equipment was a law enforcement team effort. This is an open and ongoing criminal investigation.” 

Director Barnard would like to commend all his MALTB investigators, the Hinds County Sheriff’s Office, Hinds County Patrol Division and Hinds County Emergency Operations Center for their continued effort in the recovery of stolen equipment.

Congratulations. That equipment owner got more help out of HCSO than all of the other residents of the county. They must have been informed that the media would be there.

@5:30, your rant is a result of too much fumes of some sort or a chemical or emotional imbalance. Your comment does mot apply to this post or either I missed something. Either way, put the crack pipe away…please.

@5:15 you are correct and anyone that has equipment that does not have a tracker installed really needs to think about getting one for each piece of equipment. I know because I had to learn the hard way. Thieves have been around since the beginning of mankind but after awhile you just want to take the law into your own hands. If you’re in Hinds county you have no assistance from anyone.

May 4, 2024 at 5:30 PM, who, exactly, in the article, are you referring to? What would be more interesting to me is for you to name the mountain, in Mississippi, that these hillbillies call home. Have we annexed Tennessee, and I didn't hear about it?

I don’t know what TDS is, but it does appear that 5:30 is a tad off topic.

I'm still tryin' to connect the dots between ag-equipment theft, abortion, Trump and a mountain-top in Tennessee.

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.
