The worst thing about being burglarized by a negro is that there’s a 99% chance of him opening fire on you if spotted.
A Craighead County man was being held in jail Sunday in connection with a deadly burglary Saturday evening in Jonesboro, according to police.
According to a post on the Jonesboro Police Department Facebook page, Wesley Neal, 23, of Jonesboro was arrested Sunday.
A booking notice on the Craighead County Sheriff’s Office website noted Neal was booked into jail Sunday afternoon on a homicide-capital murder charge.
Jonesboro police said they went to a home in the 3100 block of Parkwood Drive around 11:20 p.m. Saturday. Former residents discovered a truck running in the driveway of the vacant house, called the police and said it was a burglary in progress.
Police later confirmed they found a man, Andrew Powell, 24, of Jonesboro dead after they responded to the scene of the burglary.
The post noted detectives were able to develop Neal as a suspect in the case and the investigation is still ongoing.
