Cash missing in burglaries

Cash was missing from two vehicles Thursday after two auto burglaries on Drummond Street.

At 8:20 a.m., cash was reported stolen from a 2014 Dodge Ram in the 2400 block of Drummond Street, Vicksburg police Capt. Sandra Williams said. At 11:45 a.m., cash was also reported stolen from a vehicle in the 2500 block of Drummond.

Both vehicles showed no signs of forced entry, Williams said.


One free on bail in forgery

A Warren County man who had been on the lam for a year and a half in a forgery case was free on bail Thursday.

Waylon Jones, 42, 2236 Mount Alban Road, was arrested Wednesday morning by investigator Eddie Colbert on a warrant for uttering forgery, Vicksburg police Capt. Sandra Williams said.

The warrant for Jones’ arrest was discovered when he was arrested for misdemeanor shoplifting at Walmart, 2150 Iowa Blvd., Williams said. It had been issued in November 2013, Williams said.

Jones posted $2,500 bail and was released from the Warren County Jail.
