Suspected Burglar Caught after Manhunt

Authorities in Rankin County captured a man Wednesday morning who is accused of breaking into homes near the Ross Barnett Reservoir.

They arrested the man around 11:40 in the Glen Cove subdivision. That's just off Spillway Road, south of Pelahatchie Bay.

The manhunt began around 9:30, when the man was spotted coming out of a house on Mill Run Road. He took off in a Chevrolet Impala but crashed the car into the entrance sign at the Cliffview subdivision.

He then ran into the nearby woods, where he was caught about two hours later.

Monitor WLBT and for updates.
