Sunflower County Crime = Coahoma County Arrest

  Crime Committed in Sunflower County / Suspects apprehended in Coahoma County


Early this morning the Coahoma County Sheriff’s Office received a call of a vehicle, traveling North at a high rate of speed, occupied by two men, originating from Indianola, Ms where a burglary was committed.


 After the vehicle entered the county, Sheriff Charles Jones gave the order for Spike Sticks to be implemented to bring the vehicle to a stop.  Once the vehicle stopped, the two men ran from the vehicle into a wooded area located around Hwy 61 and Hwy 315.  A perimeter was set up by several agencies while K-9 units were sent into the woods to track them. At approximately 12:25pm the first of the two men were located and apprehended. Shortly afterwards, at approximately 1:17pm the second suspect was captured close to the Coahoma/Tunica county line.


Several agencies were involved in the pursuit and apprehension of these two individuals. Those Agencies include: The Coahoma County Sheriff’s Office: The Tunica County Sheriff’s Office: The Desoto County Sheriff’s Office: The Quitman County Sheriff’s Office: The Bolivar County Sheriff’s Office: The Indianola Police Department: The MHP: The MBI: The MDOC/Parchman K-9 and the Coahoma County Search & Rescue.


Sheriff Jones stated that “This type of cooperation is needed between local agencies and the Sheriff’s Office will continue to maintain a good working relationship with local law enforcement agencies, county, state and federal.”  


Both men are in custody and are being held in the Coahoma County jail at this time.
