Suspect accused of burglarizing downtown business

Jodie Smith

PASCAGOULA — Pascagoula police have arrested Jodi Smith, 37, on a charge of burglarizing the downtown Scranton’s restaurant last week, Lt. Davy Davis said.

Smith, police said, went in the business after it closed Wednesday and convinced someone there to serve him. While the meal was being prepared, Davis said Smith allegedly went into the business office and stole several items, including $255 in cash.

Police used video surveillance footage to identify Smith as the suspect. The Jackson County Sheriff’s Department assisted police in their surveillance of Smith and a companion at a local motel before his arrest.

Smith, hometown unknown, is charged with burglary and jailed in Pascagoula pending a bond hearing.
