Jackson County, Florida - April 28, 2011 -

On 3-22-2011 the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a theft at Ham Peanut Company in Bascom, Florida. Numerous items were reported missing that included a fuel tank and approximately $20,000.00 worth of farm equipment parts. A lengthy investigation resulted in the development of a suspect identified as Edwin Olinsey Pride. Evidence gathered through witness statements and video surveillance was presented to the Office of the State’s Attorney and it was determined that there was probable cause to charge Pride with the offense. On 4-26-2011 Pride was charged with Grand Theft (greater than $20,000.00 and less than $100,000.00). This investigation is ongoing. Any person with information on this incident is urged to contact the Criminal Investigations Division of the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office at (850) 482-9664.

    This man is my uncle and I know for a fact that he is nowhere near being a thug. I feel as if he's not in his right state of mind and acting out due to the death of his wife, the one that actually carried him throughout life. Yes what he did was wrong and I'm not justifying his actions. One thing I will say is I can really care less about what any of you people have to say.

      By pretending to be me you only prove that the things I say are important to you, it also proves you are a fan. I am sorry kids, I don't want nor need fans. BTW: this man does not fit the definition of thug....toodles.

    Again, I agree with Commissioner Proctor, it has to be the fault of the Mexicans working in French Town. If they would allow our thieves and drug dealers to have these minimum wage jobs I am sure they would give up crime or at least leave it to our Mayor who only " Makes mistakes".
