BEAUMONT, Texas — A Silsbee man who was serving ten years’ probation for his role in a 2012 robbery in Beaumont is back in jail because he broke the terms of his probation.

Joel Andrew Franks, 27, was arrested by Jefferson County Sheriff’s Deputies Wednesday, Jan. 23.

 A warrant was issued for his arrest earlier in the week.
