Former D’Iberville High football standout Jaquelle Green, a suspect in an armed home invasion in Jackson County, turned himself in Wednesday, Sheriff Mike Ezell said.

Green, 20, showed up at the sheriff’s substation in St. Martin the day after Ezell said federal marshals were looking for him.

Green, once eyed by recruiters for university football programs across the Gulf Coast, is one of two men accused in a robbery at gunpoint at a home in Gulf Park Estates on Dec. 21.

Ezell had identified Green and Andreyus Lavone Walker-Wells, 19, of Ocean Springs, as the suspects who took guns into a home on Beachview Drive and robbed several people.

Wells turned himself in Dec. 26. His bond was set at $50,000, but he can’t post bail. A judge revoked Wells’ probation on a felony conviction, Ezell said. Wells is held for the Mississippi Department of Corrections.

Both were considered armed and dangerous.

Recruiters at Alabama, LSU, Georgia and other university football programs had their eyes on Green while he quarterbacked for D’Iberville High.

Green signed a scholarship with the University of Texas-San Antonio in February 2016. Felony charges in Pensacola and D’Iberville changed Green’s plans.

By March 2016, he was accused in the armed robbery of a pizza delivery driver in D’Iberville. Within three months, he was arrested on charges involving the assault and armed robbery of four people in Pensacola, allegedly while wearing a mask.

Green will likely be held with no bond because of his pending felonies.
