3 arrested, 1 sought in Lamar County burglaries

LAMAR COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

Three men are behind bars facing charges and police have warrants for another in connection to multiple Lamar County burglaries.

Tanner Runnels, 20, Vincent James Graves, 18, and William Bayse, 24, were arrested in connection to multiple burglaries in Lamar County according to Lamar County Sheriff Danny Rigel.

Lamar County authorities also have burglary warrants for Dantez Keys, of Jeff Davis County, in connection to the investigation.

According to Rigel, the group of men is connected to burglaries on Jan. 9 and Jan. 12 in Sumrall.

Those burglaries occurred in the 400 block of Munn Road and in the 200 block of North Bryant Road.

Runnels was charged with two counts of false pretense, multiple old warrants, and burglary according to Rigel. Runnels was denied bond, because he was already out on bond for another burglary.

Graves was charged with burglary, and was denied bond because he was out on bond for a previous burglary charge in Lawrence County.

Bayse was charged with burglary, and was denied bond because he was out on bond for a previous burglary charge in Marion County.

“These arrests were made possible by good investigating by members of our patrol division as well as investigators and the help of the Mississippi Bureau of Investigations,” said Rigel.

If you have any information, contact the Lamar County Sheriff’s Department.

William Carey came from destruction to full restoration. Sophomore Cassidy Monk says, “The lord has just delivered us from such a tragic event..."
