Kosciusko Truck Thief Arrested Friday


Attala Communications issued an alert regarding the theft of a white Ford truck from Baptist Hospital Attala on Friday evening.

Attala Deputies pursued the vehicle and made contact in the McAdams area. The chase didn’t reach high speeds, most likely due to inclement weather.

The Mississippi Highway Patrol joined the pursuit near Sallis and assumed the lead in Holmes County.

Utilizing stop sticks, MHP successfully deflated two tires on the fleeing vehicle. The truck then veered and and came to a halt in a muddy area off of the roadway.

Madelyn Coleman, 18 of Kosciusko, was identified as the driver of the stolen vehicle and was apprehended by the Attala County Sheriff’s Office without incident.

Coleman was transported to the Kosciusko Police Department and charged with felony theft of a motor vehicle.

Attala County Sheriff, Curtis Pope, tells Breezy News, “Fortunately, there were no injuries reported during the incident, and the stolen vehicle has since been returned to its rightful owner.”

    What to say…nothing other than this younger generation really believes that the world owes them a fortune and should deliver it to them on a silver spoon. They need to be taught the way our parents brought us up, the way their parents brought them up and the way kids had been brought up for generations. We were taught manners, morals, respect for others and their property. We were taught us right from wrong and we were expected to behave accordingly. We didn’t go around vandalizing or stealing other’s property, shooting up schools, or drive by shootings. IMHO, I believe these kids should be sent to a “prison” where they’re taught what we were raised being taught. We got our b***s busted when we did something wrong. We were punished for not doing the right thing. These kids today are in desperate need of this kind of teaching. That’s what they would get if a “prison system” were set up this way. Parents of this day and age need to realize that their kids need parents, they have enough friends! Be a parent to your children people!
