JONES COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A Lauderdale County man has been arrested after police say he traveled south into another county and stole a pressure washer out of a woman's garage.

According to Jones County Sheriff's Department Investigator Capt. Don Sumrall, officers have been on the lookout for two men who entered the Bridgewater Subdivision near Ellisville and stole a Troy Bilt Pressure Washer from a homeowner.

The homeowner explained to police that she was at home when the doorbell rang. It took a moment for the homeowner to get to the door because she was caring for her young child. When she finally did reach the front door, she saw two men getting into a black Ford pickup truck with the pressure washer from her garage in the back.

The woman quickly called a relative who lives near the entrance of the subdivision and explained what happened. The relative tried to stop the vehicle, and although he was unsuccessful, the man was able to get a description of the two suspects, the vehicle and a tag number.

After tracing the vehicle through three owners, Capt. Sumrall discovered it was owned by Lauderdale County resident Harvey Jake Raines. Raines, 52, was located and arrested in Lauderdale County and charged with residential burglary. He was extradited back to Jones County and where his bond was set at $25,000.

A warrant has been issued for a second suspect who also lives in Lauderdale County, although his name has not been released.

The pressure washer was recovered and returned to the homeowner.
