FORREST COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

A Monday burglary in Forrest County that landed two in jail, has now added another two behind bars.

Megan Ray, 31, and Karanja Cobbert, 43, were charged April 13th with receiving stolen property in connection to a burglary that occurred in the 800 block of Highway 13 in Forrest County.

According to Forrest County Sheriff's Department Investigator Nick Calico, deputies took a report that Monday morning, and later that day, received another call around 5:30 p.m. that day that a tractor and other items had been stolen from a residence.

Deputies met with the victims and got a description of the items and tractor.
