Men face stolen gun charges

 

NATCHEZ — Two Natchez men face possession of a stolen weapon charges, Adams County Sheriff’s Office officials said Tuesday.

The charges came after deputies with the Adams County Special Operations Group and Investigators with the Natchez Police Department made a traffic stop Monday of a blue Buick for an equipment violation, officials said.

The Buick, which had just left the Holiday Apartments in Natchez was occupied by four people “until two subjects bailed out of the vehicle at the intersection of Maple and Reynolds streets.

“Jacqulaurence Jackson was taken into custody from the driver’s seat, and Jehron Davis was taken into custody from the rear passenger seat,” said Maj. Shane Daugherty of the Special Operations Group. “On the back seat was a loaded 12-gauge shotgun that was reported stolen from Concordia Parish.”

Davis and Jackson were transported to the Adams County Jail, Daugherty said.

Also on Monday night, ACSO Special Operations Group and Natchez police executed two search warrants looking for weapons used in a spate of recent shootings in Natchez, officials said.

The first search was of a residence that had recently been shot into at 124 Brightwood Ave. and turned up a loaded .380-caliber pistol of which no one in the residence claimed ownership.

The second search was of an apartment in the Holiday Apartments. Officials said no one was home at the time of the search, but a loaded handgun was found in the bedroom.

“Both guns have been preserved and will be submitted to the Mississippi Crime Lab to see if they have been used in any crimes,” said Adams County Sheriff Travis Patten.
