OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) -

Three flowers pots that were damaged in front of a clothing store on Government Street in Ocean Springs March 2 landed one man behind bars, according to Ocean Springs Detective William C. Jackson.

Jackson said the flower pots, located at Lee Tracy Clothing store, were valued at $765. The man accused of damaging those pots is Jason Aaron Patton of Belleville, IL, according to Jackson.

Jackson said, Staff Sergeant Patton is currently stationed at Keesler Air Force Base.

Patton is also accused of damaging a $300 irrigation system. Because the total cost of the damage was $1,065 Jackson's malicious mischief charge is considered a felony.

He was arrested and transported to the Ocean Springs police department. His bond was set at $3,000.

Anyone with information dealing with this incident contact the Ocean Springs police at 228-875-2211 or MS Coast Crime Stoppers at 1-877-787-5898.
