On April 3, 2019 the Adams County Sheriff’s Office (ACSO) was notified by a business on Hwy. 61 North that Veronica McMorris allegedly purchased two vehicles valued at approximately $9,400 using a credit card that was later reported as stolen.

Veronica has since been arrested and is being held at the Adams County Jail with no bond pending arraignment.

On April 9, 2019, ACSO was notified by another business on Hwy. 61 North that on March 27, 2019 Tira Wynette Holmes allegedly purchased a 4-wheeler for approximately $8,000.

It was later discovered that the credit card number used to make the purchase was fraudulent.

Tira is currently wanted by ACSO and is still at large at this time.

On April 16, 2019 ACSO was contacted by a third business in the City of Natchez who advised that on April 8, 2019 Joyce Rose Myles allegedly purchased four 4- wheelers for approximately $31,400 using credit card information that was later discovered to be stolen.

Joyce and her alleged accomplice, Jeremy Jamal McMorris, are both wanted by the ACSO and remain at large.

Two of the 4wheelers have been returned from other people who had purchased them from the offenders.

No charges will be filed against them.

However, if you have bought a new bike from any individual within the last month, the Adams County Sheriff’s Office is urging everyone to have it checked to see if it was purchased fraudulently.

The Adams County Sheriff’s Office says if you do not come forth, the likelihood of facing charges increases.
