Man sentenced to over 16 years in prison for felony possession of guns


A Millington man was sentenced to 200 months in prison for threatening to kill a repossession agent.

In December 2012, Kendall Joy, 47, placed a gun to Derrick Jones' head as he attempted to repossess Joy's girlfriend's car.

According to witnesses in court, Jones, along with colleagues Kenneth Minor and Jerickan McCracklin, was loading the 2005 GMC Envoy onto the bed of his wrecker when Joy ran out of his apartment in the Millington Oaks Apartment Complex and demanded that Jones release the car.

Joy told a woman to go get his gun, and when she returned, he grabbed the weapon and cocked it. Minor and McCracklin ran away, but Jones stayed.

Joy commanded Jones to stay put as he pulled the car off of the wrecker himself. The woman got into the car and drove away. Joy went into his apartment and barricaded himself inside.

After a standoff, officers forced their way into the apartment and arrested Joy at gunpoint. Officers found three young girls hiding in the apartment, who all said there were multiple guns throughout the home.

U.S. Attorney Edward L. Stanton III's office says that Joy was convicted of 34 criminal offenses between 1987 and 2011.

Joy was charged with five counts of being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.
