WIGGINS, MS (WLOX) -

Three people were arrested following the discovery of $20,000 worth of stolen property, according to Stone County Sheriff's Lt. Ray Boggs.

According to Boggs, the Stone County Sheriff's Department learned about the burglary at a home on Mage Road in Wiggins on June 22. The victim was reportedly out of town at the time of the incident.

"It was a large burglary. So it was a very large arrest, as far as law enforcement is concerned," Boggs said.

One Friday, August 30 the Stone County Sheriff's deputies with the help of the Harrison County Sheriff's investigators executed search warrants at two locations. One location was at Saucier-Lizana Road and the other location was off of Mary Shamis Road in Harrison County.

Boggs said the stolen items recovered consisted of a four wheeler, Mule (farm vehicle), two televisions, welding machines, weapons and yard equipment.

On September 5 authorities arrested George Ray Turner, 62, of Saucier and Shad Anthony Shaw, 36, of Saucier and his wife Bettie Cassandra Shaw, 34, of Saucier for charges of receiving stolen property.

The Shaws reportedly worked for Turner. Boggs said the investigation is ongoing and said the suspects did not know the victim.

"When we collaborate together we can come up with a good bust and a good arrest and had it not been with us working together I don't think that would have been possible," Boggs said. "Investigators in Stone County and Harrison County investigators have created a bond and we thank them for their help."

All three were booked at the Harrison County Adult Detention Center.
