HINDS COUNTY - JACKSON -

Jackson Police are searching for a suspect who burglarized a youth center last week. The man you see in this surveillance video tried to break into the Genesis and Light Center on North State Street and to the vehicles outside.

One vehicle was unlocked, and the man climbed inside. The center's Executive Director, Albert Wilson, says the man then kicked open the back door, which set off the alarm, and he ran away.

Wilson says this is the fifth or sixth burglary at the center over the past few years.

"We really need the public to assist us in locating and finding this person," says Wilson. "We are a charity, and equipment and funding is real low and slow right now, and to have someone vandalize us that way really does hit us hard."

If you recognize the man in the video, please call JPD.
