Police issue arrest warrant for Belhaven porch burglar

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

3 On Your Side obtained You Tube video of a crime going down in Belhaven.

The surveillance cameras show a guy stealing property right off the front porch in broad daylight. The unidentified subject casually walks up to a home on poplar street in Belhaven, then surveys vintage patio furniture.

The owner had just purchased an inexpensive camera security system and installed it himself. He posted the surveillance video on You Tube, which has received nearly 1,000 hits. You can see the thief leave. Then he backs his car around the corner to avoid detection.

Cameras catch him jumping on the front porch and stealing three chairs and a glider. With his trunk up and loaded with stolen goods he slowly drives out of the Belhaven neighborhood to sell it.

Police have issued an arrest warrant for 23-year-old Lee Ewing, Jr.

He will be charged with petit larceny.
