Man caught after hiding in chicken bin


A Philadelphia man was arrested hiding under a feed bin after leading local authorities on a high-speed pursuit.

The man, Ricky Jones, 44, 412 Coleman Street, was arrested and charged with felony pursuit, failure to yield to blue lights, switched tag, no insurance, suspended driver’s license, and possession of marijuana, according to Neshoba County Sheriff Eric Clark.

Deputies first encountered Jones at a safety checkpoint where Road 616 meets Highway 482 at Sandtown on Sunday, June 2, at about 3 p.m.

Deputies soon established that Jones had a warrant from the Mississippi Department of Corrections. After deputies asked Jones to exit his vehicle, Jones sped away and headed west on Highway 16.

Jones would then turn onto Highway 486 in the lane of oncoming traffic. Clark said that after about five miles, Jones was believed to have exited the vehicle off Golf Course Road because they found it abandoned and crashed into trees.

Clark said his department received multiple calls reporting Jones in the area. He said the Mississippi Department of Wildlife and Fisheries and the Philadelphia Police Department assisted in the search. 

PPD deployed a dog, and the Sheriff’s Department used their drone during the search.

After an extensive search that lasted over an hour, Jones was located under a feed bin near some abandoned chicken houses.
