JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The man police say had thousands of dollars in stolen parts from the Nissan Plant was in court Friday. Eric Brown, 49, made his initial appearance in Jackson Municipal Court.

Brown's bond was set at $100,000 on multiple counts of receiving and possession of stolen property.

Wednesday, police say they uncovered $83,000 worth of new Nissan parts at Brown's business on Gault Street in Jackson. They say it was really a cover for a chop shop.

Investigators say they still don't know how the parts were stolen. Detectives are still going through items found on the property to see if more charges can be filed.

Brown also faces fines for a previous possession of marijuana charge. And, officers charged Ray Coleman with auto theft for bringing a stolen vehicle to Brown's shop.
