JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - Two people are behind bars after being charged with burglary in Jones County.
Timothy Rogers, 54 of Laurel and Jamie Cochran, 29 of Laurel, were both charged with two counts of burglary and made their initial appearances in court Monday.
Cochran's bond was set at $5,000 per count ($10,000 total), and Rogers' bond was denied because he is on post-release supervision for previous convictions including aggravated assault and child molestation, according to the Jones County Sheriff's Department.
On Saturday, Jones County sheriff's deputies responded to a home on Pine Drive for suspicious activity because a neighbor had called and reported an unknown vehicle at a nearby home.
According to the JCSD, when deputies got to the scene, the vehicle had left the home. But after receiving a statement from the neighbor and calling the owner of the home to make sure the property was secure, dispatch received another call about more suspicious activity at a home on Line Road.
The same vehicle, which was verified by the tag number, was at the home. Two individuals were still inside the home.
Deputies arrested Rogers and Cochran at the home, according to JCSD. The two were carrying items from the Pine Drive address and from the Line Road residence.
