I've blogged about the PRVWSD's website, www.therez.ms.gov, before.  If you haven't explored, you may find interesting information you never knew was there.  For example:

  - The Rez Map, with its many layers, provides a wealth of knowledge.  Boat ramps, hiking trails, hunting land, land use plans, zoning, and much more.

  - Board of Directors Minutes, agendas.

  - Email addresses for all staff, including the Executive Director.


  - Brochures from each of the campgrounds.



That's just a scratch on the surface.

One Guy Returns

Old news, I know, but it's good news:  One Guy Steak and Chicken is back.  The Supervisors did the right thing, in my opinion.  I was having trouble understanding how this food truck somehow created a safety hazard, yet allowing rec league baseball players to panhandle at an intersection isn't.

On a major thoroughfare with two gas stations under construction, a pawn shop, a car wash, and multiple storage unit facilities, this food truck brings a slight ray of hope.

Car Burglar Caught

There are dumb criminals, and then there are criminals that actually live in Jackson, but commit crimes in Rankin County.  Take this guy, for example.  From Sheriff Bailey's Facebook page:


Arrest Made in Weekend Auto Burglaries

There were at least thirteen vehicle burglaries in the northwest part of Rankin County over this past weekend. The burglaries were concentrated to the Scottish Hills and Castlewoods neighborhoods. All of the vehicles burglarized were unlocked and items such as guns, cash, and electronics were taken. 

In some of the Rankin County Burglaries, victims were able to supply the sheriff’s office with video, which was instrumental in identifying the suspect.



Investigators in the tri-County area meet once a month to discuss crimes and crime trends in the various jurisdictions. They use email and social media to share information between the different jurisdictions. Information about these burglaries was posted to a law enforcement social media site on Sunday. Within five minutes of the posting, a Flowood Investigator contacted Rankin County Investigators, reporting a conversation he had minutes prior with Clinton Investigator Nick Sprowles, regarding a vehicle burglary suspect, Woodrez Tremayne DAVIS. Investigator Sprowles supplied information that DAVIS was in the Northwest area of Rankin County early Saturday and Sunday morning. 

Based on Investigator Sprowles information and video surveillance evidence, it was quickly determined that DAVIS was the prime suspect in Rankin County. When this information was posted on the law enforcement social media site, Investigator John Cooley with Madison Police Department reached out to lead Rankin County Investigator Michael Chandler stating DAVIS was also a suspect in some vehicle burglaries in their jurisdiction. Investigator Cooley was able to secure three felony warrants on DAVIS. Rankin County Investigators Chandler, DiMartino and Burleson coordinated with Investigators Sprowles and Cooley along with the US Marshal’s Service to located and apprehend DAVIS. 

DAVIS was located on Dalton Street in Jackson where he was taken into custody. At the time of his arrest, Investigators were able to locate, in plain view, items stolen from some of the Rankin County burglaries and well as property from Clinton. 

A search of the residence did not produce any additional stolen property. The weapons that were stolen were sold on the streets in Jackson at various gas stations, according to early statements given by DAVIS.

A criminal history on DAVIS shows his first arrest in April of 1997 and his most recent was February 2016. DAVIS has been arrested five times for vehicle burglary, two times for grand larceny, two times for motor vehicle theft, four times for stolen property and four times for felon in possession of a firearm. Some of his arrests had multiple charges. It is unclear at this time how many counts of vehicle burglary he will be facing in Rankin County as well as his charges in Madison and Clinton.

The burglaries in Rankin County were committed early Saturday and Sunday morning, through the diligent work of Madison, Clinton and Rankin County Investigators, this habitual criminal will be in for a new experience when he goes before Madison/Rankin District Attorney Michael Guest.

DAVIS was transported to the Rankin County Jail, where he is currently charged with multiple counts of vehicle burglary. Clinton and Madison will be working their charges at the same time as Rankin.

This is a great example of citizens and law enforcement working in concert to remove a public menace from the streets. If it were not for the collaborative effort of all agencies involved, there is no question DAVIS would have victimized many more citizens in the Tri-County area.

Thank you to the Clinton Police Department, Madison Police Department and the U.S. Marshals Service for helping us apprehend this career criminal.


Do you see where the Sheriff discusses Davis' habitual status?  At his blog, Kingfish has additional information about the catch-and-release program practiced by the Hinds County District Attorney and Hinds County judicial system.

Reservoir East Home Invasion Suspects Caught

Here is the press release from Sheriff Bailey's office.  For pics of the suspects, go to the department's Facebook account.

September 28, 2017
Three days after a home invasion Investigators have five in custody
Investigators with the Rankin County Sheriff’s Department have been working with Investigators with the Madison Police Department to apprehend two individuals in connection with the September 25 home invasion in Reservoir East, Rankin County. Those two have been identified as Devin Nicholas JACKSON and Jon Michael KENDRICK. Investigators were following up on leads obtained during the investigation leading them to KENDRICK’S Madison address. 
When deputies executed a search warrant, one of the stolen cell phones from the home invasion was located. In addition to the stolen cell phone, Investigators seized two handguns from JACKSON’S vehicle that are believed to have been used during the commission of the crime. 

Based on additional information obtained during the investigation, Unique Alishe FISHER, Douglas L’Anthony SPANN, Jaleen Donares JACKSON and Macthomas WILSON were all identified as suspects in the home invasion. As luck would have it, FISHER, SPANN and J. JACKSON were all three in the Rankin County Jail on unrelated charges. FISHER and SPANN were arrested on September 27, 2017 for conspiracy and armed robbery by Pearl Police. J JACKSON was arrested this week for breaking and entering an unoccupied residence in the Bellegrove community by the Rankin County Sheriff’s Department. The investigation would later show that the Bellegrove residence was used as the stash house after the home invasion.

WILSON was sentenced in August 2016 in Rankin County Circuit Court for multiple counts of vehicle burglary. WILSON received a seven year sentence for those crimes and was released from MDOC custody July 14, 2017. He remains on probation at this time. Upon release from MDOC, WILSON reported to the Rankin County Sheriff’s Department to recover personal property. Investigators checked the last known address for WILSON on Thursday and were unable to locate him. WILSON will be placed on NCIC as wanted and dangerous and we will solicit the assistance of the US Marshals Service to apprehend WILSON.
