Brick-wielding Bush-whacker Gets $150,000 Bond

VICKSBURG, MS (Ben Caxton) — A homeless man who jumped from the bushes brandishing a brick to steal from a Vicksburg priest – who had earlier bought him a room for the night – has had his first court appearance. Judge Toni Terrett set bond at $150,000 for 52-year-old Thomas Lee Jiles who is charged with armed robbery in the Monday evening theft of $100. The priest said he had tried to help Jiles earlier in the day after he told him he was homeless and needed some money to try and get back to Yazoo City and didn’t have any place to stay. The priest got a room for Jiles at the Relax Inn. Which is where police found and arrested him the next morning. He is being held in the Warren County Jail. The Mississippi Department of Corrections has also placed a hold on Jiles, who is on parole for uttering forgery.
