Nathan Tucker

The suspect in an auto theft Thursday in Jones County has been captured in Pearl after a tip from an alert reader.

Nathan Tucker was arrested by the Pearl Police Department after a citizen’s tip led officers to a location where the stolen 2018 Toyota RAV4 was reportedly parked. Tucker was taken into custody and the vehicle recovered.

“We were able to utilize resources and coordinate efforts between our agency and the Pearl Police Department to affect the arrest of Nathan Tucker who had fled Jones County,” said Investigator Ruben Bishop. “We greatly appreciate their assistance in this case.”

Tucker will be transferred to JCSD custody today and face a Jones County Justice Court judge for his initial appearance.
