The Jones County Sheriff’s Office is requesting assistance in identifying two suspects involved in the break-ins at Old Clinton Gas and Creekside convenience store. The crimes occurred Sept. 30. A media released from Sgt. Clay Wiggins stated the only items taken in the burglaries were cash registers. Both suspects are believed to be white males in their late teens or early 20s. The first suspect was described as wearing a light in color ski-type mask, a light colored hooded jacket that buttons down the front, cargo shorts with drawstrings in the legs, and tennis shoes. Suspect number two was described as a heavyset male, dark colored pullover hoodie, cargo shorts, and sneakers.
A possible suspect vehicle is a dark in color four-door midsize sedan.
T.J. Heath, the owner of Old Clinton Gas, has promised a $5,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspects. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Jones County Sheriff’s Office at 478-986-3489.
According to a report of the crimes by Jones County Deputy William Pruitt, he was dispatched to Old Clinton Gas at 3:43 a.m., Sept. 30, after a passer-by alerted a Gray Police officer that someone had smashed the windows of the store.
