Hattiesburg Man Arrested for Dozens of Auto Burglaries

Posted: Updated:

HATTIESBURG, Miss. - The 21-year-old man Hattiesburg Police were searching for last week is now behind bars, after authorities say he turned himself in to police.

Wauke Bullock was wanted in connection with a recent auto burglary in Hattiesburg.

He is charged with one count of auto burglary and one count of simple robbery from the Breckinridge Apartments.

He was booked in the Forrest County jail Monday.

Lt. Jon Traxler says this one arrest cleared 20 to 25 other cases concerning car break-ins.

Just for the month of June, Hattiesburg police have reported almost 50 auto burglaries.

Police are urging residents to keep your car doors locked and don't leave any valuables out in plain site in your car.
