On May 1, 2013, Jones County Sheriff's Department responded to a mobile home near the end of Leroy Musgrove Road in Soso. Investigators had received reports of illegal drug activity and a felony fugitive residing at the mobile home. Upon arrival and entry, a felony fugitive known as Kendrick Page – exited the rear of the mobile home and ran into a nearby wooded area. Page was not apprehended and remains at large.
At the mobile home, investigators found a female resident – Coronda Page-Palmer and her three year old son. Two other juveniles live at the residence, but they were in school at the time. Investigators found digital scales and marijuana in plain sight in the residence. Upon further investigation, Investigators found and recovered 17 individually bagged packages of "high grade" marijuana in the children's room concealed in a woman's shoe. In another part of the residence, Investigators found and recovered more scales, packaging materials, US Currency, additional marijuana and morphine pills.
Investigators notified the Department of Human Services and they sent a representative to the scene.
Investigators believe that Coronda Page-Palmer has been harboring fugitive Kendrick Page at the mobile home for the past few months. Coronda Page-Palmer was arrested and is being charged with Child Endangerment, Possession of a Controlled Substance (with intent to distribute), Possession of Marijuana (with intent to distribute) and Hindering Prosecution or Apprehension. Bond for Page-Palmer will be set Friday before a Justice Court Judge.
Kendrick Page is wanted by the Jones County Sheriff's Department and the Mississippi Department of Corrections for Felony Possession of a Controlled Substance and Possession of a Weapon by a Convicted Felon. These warrants were issued after a search warrant executed in September at the same mobile home. Page is believed to have left the state and has just recently returned.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Kendrick Page is asked to contact the Jones County Sheriff's Department at 601-425-3147, the Mississippi Department of Corrections or Crimestoppers.
