Business owner shot in robbery

August 28, 2002

Sylvester- Sixty-four-year old James White Junior is recovering at Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital.

The man better known to most as "Junebug" was busy preparing some food at his barbecue business Tuesday afternoon when two men came in demanding money.

White's barbecue shop on Henderson Street also serves as his bail bonding business. That's why White says his assailants knew they'd find him with a lot of money there. He threw an undetermined amount of cash on the table for them, but they shot him in the knee before running away.

Police have identified the shooter as 19-year-old Jonathan Jefferson and his accomplice as 21-year-old Charles Seay Junior, both of Sylvester.

Neither has been taken into custody yet, but Sylvester police and Worth County's sheriff are continuing their search.
