Around 1:00 p.m. Friday evening authorities say Marion Chad Spears walked up to a clerk at B and G Wood products in Philadelphia and handed over a note.

"The note stated that I have a gun. Do what I say or I will kill you. He stated that he wanted money and for the clerk to write him a check in the amount of $15,000," said Assistant Police Chief Julian Greer.

The suspect is said to have informed the woman that they would be leaving the property in her car and then go to the Citizens Bank in town. However, before leaving a person at the wood products store recognized the suspect.

"After the bank cashed the check, the suspect made her drive to Highway 19 just outside the city limits of Philadelphia where he then put her out and continued on, " said Greer.

The female was not injured. She called for help from a house along the road. The suspect was last seen driving south on highway 19 towards Meridian. Authorities say they know exactly who he is and where he came from Friday evening.

"He was ordered to jail by the Justice Court here in Neshoba County to work his fines off. He was put on a work detail at the county unit barn. Sometime today he walked off from the work detail," said Neshoba County Sheriff
Donnie Adkins.

If you know where Spears is located you are asked to contact authorities.

    Nothing was mentioned about how he escaped from the work detail...I agree with Miranda's post; her post said it all.

    I really hope this worthless man is caught very soon! I am a Friend of this business and everyone there are like family to us. They did not deserve this! Everyone works for what they have! If he needed money he should have got a job! but he would not even stay on a work program to pay a fine off. So that just goes to show you how he was! When he is found he needs to be punished! First for putting the two womens life on the line and second for taking someones money that does not even belong to them, and making her go with him and then putting her out of her car she has worked hard to pay for!! My prayers goes out to everyone. I hope justice will be served!!
