JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

A man who was the target of a manhunt in Jackson County Wednesday morning is now in custody. But the search continues for another man who escaped from a patrol car.

Deputies said they started looking for Brandon Parnell, 31, because he violated his probation, then ran away when deputies showed up to his house to arrest him. The search took place in the Wade area near Hwy. 63 and Goff Rd.

According to authorities, Parnell was wanted on a probation warrant through the Mississippi Department of Corrections and an indictment in Jackson County from January for receiving stolen property.

People outside Parnell’s home who identified themselves as relatives said the incident is a “family matter.”

In a separate case, Jackson County deputies are also searching for Charles Mott, 34, of Lucedale. He's wanted for receiving stolen property. Sheriff Mike Ezell said deputies got a tip that Mott had a stolen truck at an address on Coda Road in Helena. He was taken into custody and placed in a patrol car, but escaped when the deputies left to search the house. 

Investigators believe Mott then stole a 1999 Ford Expedition. He was last seen driving north toward Big Point.
