A juvenile with a lengthy criminal history will be charged as an adult in connection to allegedly burglarizing a vehicle and stealing a gun.
B’Avion Carter, 17, was charged with burglary and trespassing this week after his case was transferred to Yazoo County Circuit Court due to his very extensive history with law enforcement.
Terry Gann, chief investigator with the Yazoo County Sheriff’s Department, said the investigation began when deputies responded to a loitering call at Shady Lane Apartment Complex.
“It was reported that a number of people were standing around the apartment buildings late at night,” Gann said. “When deputies arrived, they noticed Carter, who was placed on the trespassing list at the complex.”
Gann said Carter fled the scene as deputies approached him.
“The deputies witnessed Carter throw an object to the ground,” Gann said. “After he was apprehended by the deputies, they returned to the scene to find that he had thrown a gun to the ground.”
Originally, Carter was charged as a juvenile for trespassing and possession of a firearm by a minor.
“Later, we discovered the gun had been reported stolen,” Gann said. “Carter then confessed to breaking into a truck and stealing the gun.”
Instead of heading into Youth Court, Carter will now appear in Circuit Court as an adult.
