The white SUV stolen from a home on Douglass Drive on Monday, May 10 at about 5 a.m. has been recovered.
“The vehicle was recovered on Louisiana Avenue on May 11 parked at a vacant residence,” said Sam Brown, public information officer for the Jackson Police department.
The SUV, a Toyota Highlander, was stolen after a suspect saw a purse near a window at a home on Douglass Drive, broke the window, reached through the widow and grabbed the purse.
“The suspect didn’t go into the house,” Brown said.
The suspect obtained the keys to the vehicle from the purse and drove off, he said.
"The homeowner attempted to go after the suspect and the suspect fired one shot at the homeowner and missed them," Brown said.
The purse was recovered on May 10.
