JACKSON MAN CHARGED IN TWO VEHICLE THEFTS

A Jackson man was in the Warren County Jail this morning on charges of auto theft, Capt. Robert Dowe of the Vicksburg Police Department said.

Gary McClendon, 44, 3709 Bailey Ave., was arraigned in Vicksburg Municipal Court Monday on two counts of auto theft, Dowe said.

McClendon was picked up from the Copiah County Jail after police connected him with a GMC Suburban reported missing from George Carr last year and a Nissan Maxima taken from Blackburn Motor Co. in May, Dowe said.
