A search for a man making suicidal threats recently led to Jackson County Sheriff’s Office deputies finding six stolen vehicles at a property on Nathaniel Dr.

The man was reportedly making the threats to a woman in South Jackson. He told her he was going to kick in her front door if she did not let him inside and later threatened to harm himself and that his harm would be “on her hands.”

After not finding the man on her property, deputies pinged his phone and found his location on Nathaniel Dr. When they arrived, the man fled into the woods.

Deputies found an all-terrain vehicle on the property that was stolen. Deputies received consent to search the rest of the property where they confirmed five other vehicles and a shotgun on the property were all stolen.


A woman on Hardin Terrace Cir. told JCSO she was in her bed when an unknown man came into her bedroom.

The man then spoke to another person in the living room before closing her door and running out of the residence. Deputies placed extra patrol around the neighborhood.
