CRAWFORDVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say an inmate at a Florida Panhandle jail hanged himself in his cell over the weekend.

The Wakulla County Sheriff's Office reports that 39-year-old Jerry Jackie Kitchens of Seminary, Mississippi, was found dead Saturday evening by a corrections officer making a routine hourly inmate check. Officials say Kitchens was alone in the cell when he hung himself with a bed sheet.

Authorities say Kitchens was arrested in April after he and a woman were stopped by Wakulla County deputies. Authorities say the vehicle was loaded with camping gear, a box of stolen knives, two stolen handguns, prescription pills, narcotics patches and $5,000.
