UPDATE: Bond was set at $5,000 for Eddie Adams. He appeared in court Tuesday morning in Rankin County
RANKIN COUNTY, Mississippi (WJTV) – A man accused of trying to steal a car from a woman taking Christmas decorations out in Rankin County is scheduled to appear in court today.
Eddie Terrell Adams allegedly confronted the female victim on Sunday when she came back for a second load of decorations from her car. The 35-year-old was arrested on November 27, 2016 after deputies say he took the woman’s car from her driveway to the street. She says that he had a “long” gun with him. She says that she ran back inside her home and called 911.
A rifle was taken from a home in the nearby Mill Creek subdivision earlier that day. Rankin County Sheriff’s Deputies believe that the two crimes are connected.
