The 400th suspect listed as “Most Wanted” by the Jones County Sheriff’s Department has been arrested in Alabama.

According to a release from JCSO, the Foley Police Department in Foley, Alabama, made a traffic stop on May 9 involving Jennifer Davenport of Jones County. When Foley officers ran her history through the FBI’s National Crime Information Center, a Jones County Circuit Court bench warrant came back as active.

Davenport was taken into custody on the Jones County Circuit Court bench warrant for Failure To Comply With Pre-Trial on an original charge of Possession of Methamphetamine. Davenport also had a 2015 outstanding indictment for burglary and other charges.

She is the 400th JCSD “Most Wanted” subject taken into custody since March 5, 2020, when the JCSD website went live and “Most Wanted” subjects began appearing on the site.

Davenport was transported to the Baldwin County jail following the traffic stop and held at the request of the Jones County Sheriff’s Department. She later went before a Baldwin County judge to sign her waiver of extradition which she signed on May 10. Davenport was transported back to Jones County by Jones County Sheriff’s Department Court Services deputies and is incarcerated at the Jones County Adult Detention Facility pending her initial court appearance.

“We have been diligent in pursuing those individuals with active warrants who are listed as “Most Wanted,” said Jones County Sheriff Joe Berlin. “Our Court Services Division, under the leadership of Sergeant Lance Williams, is working hard each and every day to bring in those who are on our ‘Most Wanted’ list. If you are appearing on our ‘Most Wanted’ list, my best advice is to just come turn yourself in.”
