Man out on bond for murder arrested for several car break-ins in Mobile County

MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) - A man who was out on bond for murder in Mobile County is back in custody on new charges. 

The Mobile County Sheriff's Office says 24-year-old Jesse Lane was arrested for several car break-ins in the county and city. 

MCSO deputies found several items on Lane when he was arrested.

Deputies say Jessie has been burglarizing the north and south part of the county for weeks by breaking into cars, stealing guns, credit cards, and anything else left in a vehicle. 

MCSO says they have been looking for Jesse for the last couple of days and located him at Mason D'ville apartments on Airport Blvd. 

Lane is charged in the Halloween murder of 26-year-old Lumumba Green in 2016. Green's body was found burned inside a car on Dekalb and Colbert Streets in the Alabama Village area in Prichard. His body was burned so severely that investigators could only identify him through dental records.


In a post on Facebook, the sheriff's office questioned why Lane was released on bond in the first place.

Lane's bond amount was $175,000.

After seeing the story on News 5, an angry Judge Bob Sherling called the newsroom to say he set bond at the amount asked for by the District Attorney's office.



News 5 will be live on the WKRG Facebook page as Lane is escorted to jail. Tune in to News 5 at 6p for the story.
