Smokey the bandit

The Jones County Sheriff’s Department is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a burglary suspect. 

The man broke into the Keith’s Superstore in Moselle and stole a large quantity of Newport cigarettes on Wednesday night, according to the report.

The store is located at 58 Moselle-Seminary Road, just off Interstate 59.

Anyone with information on the identity of the suspect is asked to contact JCSD at 601-425-3147 or Jones County Crime Stoppers at 601-428-STOP (7867). 

Investigators say they need tipsters’ information, not their name.
