The police department said on November 27, at 12:30 p.m. dispatch was told to be on the lookout for a white 2013 Ford Escape with a MS tag of PRH6436. Two black males were inside the vehicle and had allegedly shoplifted a large amount of laundry detergent from a Dollar Store.
At 1:30 p.m. Picayune police spotted the car matching the description traveling west on Rosa Street.
Officers pulled the vehicle over and identified the driver as Jermaine Daggans and the passenger as Charles R. Smith.
Police noticed a large amount of laundry detergent on the back seat of the car.
Officers then contacted the Sheriff’s Department and told them they had the suspects pulled over and detained, awaiting their arrival.
A Pearl River County Sheriff’s Department Investigator arrived on the scene and positively identified the suspects from the video at the store.
Daggans was also identified in a shoplifting that occurred in the city of Picayune a couple of weeks prior for stealing a full grocery cart of laundry detergent. Both subjects were arrested for shoplifting and possession of stolen property.
