JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

A Lucedale man arrested in October for allegedly posing as a youth minister and scamming business owners has been arrested again.

Jackson County Sheriff Mike Ezell said Tommy Alexander Boulton was caught this time trying to scam one of his previous victims.

Ezell said Boulton, 29, asked the Helena man for a second contribution to his church. The man organized a meeting with Boulton at his home and called the sheriff’s department.

Ezell said Boulton made a run for it when investigators arrived. Neighbors helped chase Boulton down, and he was taken into custody.

Boulton is charged with three counts of false pretense. His bond was set at $3,000 for those charges. He also had outstanding warrants through Jackson County Justice Court.

Ezell said Boulton is also wanted on grand theft and fraud charges in Pensacola, FL.

If you believe you have been scammed by Boulton, who also goes by John Black and Youth Pastor Street, please contact Lt. Randy Muffley at 228-769-3152 or 228-769-3065.

    The Pascagoula Panthers open the 2017 football season on the road. In fact, their first three games are road contests. That scheduling quirk may give field turf crews just enough time to get War Memorial Stadium ready for the September 8 home opener. The wet weather in South Mississippi is placing quite the burden on construction workers as they attempt to complete stadium renovations. The project was suppose to be finished before the beginning of Pascagoula's football season.
