On 9-10-20 at approximately 11:45 a.m. the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call reporting a theft in progress at Harbour Freight, located in the Oak Station Shopping Center. Video surveillance confirmed that Chris Maurice McKinney removed two generators valued at $500 each and a 780cc motor valued at $1000 from the store without paying for them and began to load them into a U-Haul van in the parking lot. At about the same time a Sneads Police Officer returning from court was exiting his vehicle in the same parking lot. A store employee saw the Officer and requested assistance in stopping the theft. As the officer and the employee approached the U-Haul, McKinnie ran to the truck and attempted to get in, but the door was locked. He jumped onto the hood as the driver, Milton Ray Jefferson, sped away, slinging McKinnie from the vehicle into the parking lot. McKinnie fled on foot and Jefferson fled in the U-Haul. The Sneads Officer and the store employee gave chase on foot through Mercer’s Paint and Body into an area of thick brush. McKinnie, who was wearing his pants hanging down, tripped when his jeans fell to his knees. After a struggle, McKinnie was taken into custody. Deputies began to BOLO the area for U-Haul, which they quickly found behind Eastside Baptist Church, abandoned. The Jackson Correctional Institution and Apalachee Correctional Institution K-9 Tracking Teams responded and quickly established a track away from the vehicle. The track continued to the area of Cox Lane where they found evidence that Jefferson had attempted to enter a house. They also discovered a missing    4-Wheeler from the house. As the track continued, the K-9 team located the 4-Wheeler near the RR tracks, abandoned. The track continued west down the RR tracks, almost to Jefferson St. in Marianna. Several Officers were staged in the area which caused Mr. Jefferson to turn south into the woods. When he came upon another group of Officers on the south perimeter, he turned back west. As he exited the brush on Barwick Lane, he was apprehended by a Marianna Police Officer and a Jackson County Deputy and taken into custody without further incident. Both were lodged in the

Jackson County Correctional Facility to await first appearance. Milton Ray Jefferson also had an outstanding felony warrant from Leon County for Failure to Register as a Career Offender. The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the JCI and ACI K-9 Tracking Teams for their invaluable assistance along with the Sneads Police Department, the Marianna Police Department and the Florida Highway Patrol.
