Indictment Handed Down In Car Burglary Case

Burglary charges are now pending against a Putnam County man, who was shot while allegedly trying to break into a car last year. The indictment against 33-year-old Kenneth Wayne Jones was returned after Detective Tammy Goolsby presented evidence to the grand jury. Jones was allegedly found to be breaking into a car at a home on Lovelady Road in late December. The homeowner, identified as 29-year-old Justin Byron Parrott, confronted Jones with a handgun and told him to remain where he was until police arrived. But Jones allegedly made an aggressive move toward Parrott who fired several shots. Jones was hospitalized after the shooting, but has since recovered and will be in court on the burglary charge July 13th.
