Armed Jackson resident surprises thieves

Three suspected burglars fleeing an angry and armed Jackson homeowner were arrested and charged Tuesday night, police said today.

Precinct 2 Cmdr. Jesse Robinson said the west Jackson homeowner who lives in the 2300 block of Powers Avenue came home late Tuesday to find his front door kicked in.

The owner found three strangers hiding in a rear bedroom and fired several shots. He missed, and the intruders fled, according to Robinson.

However, a police officer later arrested and charged Corey Husbands, 20, Ceola Washington, 18, and Brandon Carter, 25, with house burglary.

They are being held at the Hinds County Detention Center on $25,000 bond each.
