Authorities Search for Moselle Burglars

Posted: Updated:

The Jones County Sheriff's Department and Crimestoppers are searching for the person or persons who cleaned out a Moselle home in a burglary.

"What Cimestoppers is trying to do is to find anybody that has seen somebody moving a large amount of household goods during the first couple weeks of the year or anybody that may know where this stuff is located," Jones Co. Crimestoppers Coordinator Wilbur Chamberlin said.

The items shouldn't be hard to spot.  The thieves made it out with thousands of dollars in household items including four TVs, a bedroom suit, dining room suit, crystal collection, Dacon gas grill antique shotgun and more. 

The break-in happened sometime between January 1 - 8 while the owners weren't at home.

Chamberlin suggested it's important when you're away from your home to show activity.  Don't leave newspapers stacked in the driveway or let mail pile up.

"Your best bet is your neighbors, close friends, family relatives even.  Have them come by and check on the house daily," Chamberlin said.

 Crimestoppers reminds citizens they only want your information, not your name, and they usually offer a monetary award of up to $1,000.  Contact them at 601-582-stop (601-582-7867) or the Jones County Sheriff's Department at 601-425-3147.
