LEE COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) – Lee County authorities apprehend a wanted man shortly after we ran his picture on WCBI.

51 year old John Newell was taken into custody in northern Lee County Monday (1/29) night.

His alleged partner in crime, 51 year-old Jeffery Lesley of Mooreville was already being held on a $150,000 bond.

The pair are allegedly responsible for the burglary of yard barns last Friday and the burglary of Pizza Inn Express 2 weeks before that.

That’s where, authorities think, the pair hooked an ATM up to a Ford Ranger and tried to drag it off. It didn’t work.

Both suspects are being held at the Lee County jail.
