FORREST COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

Forrest County authorities have the 5th suspect in custody in connection to a burglary that occurred last week in Forrest County.

Singleton “Bilbo” Fairley, 34, was arrested Monday and charged with receiving stolen property and possession of methamphetamine.

Megan Ray, 31, and Karanja Cobbert, 43, were arrested and charged with receiving stolen property after deputies responded to the call on Monday April 13th 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.

Calico added that help from the public led them to the recovery of the tractor.

“We recovered the tractor on Ray Road, and once deputies got on scene, two suspects were taken into custody, and three suspects ran into the woods,” said Calico.

As the investigation progressed, authorities identified the three suspects that ran into the woods. Arrest warrants were issued by the Forrest County Sheriff's Department for Vicki Green, Singleton "Bilbo" Fairley and Jason McPhail.

Last Friday, Lamar County authorities arrested Jason McPhail and Vicki Green in connection to a separate incident, a Lamar County burglary that occurred at a mini-storage unit in Sumrall on February 8th.

According to Lamar County Sheriff Danny Rigel, the pair stole clothing and various electronics from the storage unit.

McPhail was arrested on Nobles Road in Lamar County, and Green was arrested on Deer Meadow in Sumrall.

Green was charged with burglary, receiving stolen property, possession of burglary tools and parole violation.

McPhail was charged with burglary, receiving stolen property and possession of burglary tools.

McPhail and Green were booked in to the Lamar County Jail.
