Jones County Sheriff’s Department investigators and deputies captured “Most Wanted” subject Javeryion Dixon, age 22, at a residence on Pine Street in Laurel this afternoon. Dixon attempted to flee on foot, but was quickly apprehended.
Dixon was wanted on a Bench Warrant for Failure To Appear issued by the Jones County Circuit Court judge in relation to a Accessory After The Fact-Murder charge. He was captured just one day after being publicized by news media and social media as wanted by JCSD. Tips from the public led to Dixon’s location.
Dixon had allegedly taken to the JCSD Facebook post on his wanted status with a “laughing” emoji on Wednesday. He was captured just over 24 hours later.
He will face Circuit Court Judge Dal Williamson on the Bench Warrant issued for Failure To Appear.
Jones County Sheriff Joe Berlin stated, “Don’t underestimate our diligence in tracking down ‘Most Wanted’ subjects. While it may have been funny to Mr. Dixon yesterday that he was wanted, he’s not laughing now.”
