JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - A 64-year-old man, wanted in connection to water theft from the City of Jackson, has surrendered himself to police Thursday morning.

Willie McClendon was wanted for grand larceny.

Jackson police say the theft resulted from an illegal water hookup at his residence over a substantial period.

37-year-old Jessie Jones was arrested earlier this month for allegedly stealing water from the city and a second man, 28-year-old Justin Jones, was arrested a week later.
