JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - A Jackson police officer is behind bars on a stolen weapons charge months after a grand jury indicted him.

Hinds County Sheriff Tyree Jones confirmed deputies arrested 28-year-old Jacques Brown Tuesday.

A Hinds County grand jury indicted Brown six months earlier for possessing a stolen 9MM handgun, yet he continued to work for the police department until deputies picked him up this week.

JPD Assistant Chief Joseph Wade told 3 On Your Side that Brown is on administrative leave due to a personnel matter, but would not comment further.
