BOONEVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) -- A report of a suspicious vehicle leads to the arrest of two people authorities say are responsible for church burglaries in the area.
Sheriff Randy Tolar says Gregory Odel Robinson, 41, and Mary Gwen Robinson, 41, of Tishomingo are each charged with two counts of burglary of a buidling and possession of burglary tools.
Tolar says officers received a report of a suspicious vehicle at Silome Methodist Church on County Road 4101 early Monday morning.
Deputies noticed items later identified as belonging to the church inside the car.
Tolar says the Robinsons fled into a wooded area behind the church and were later arrested.
He says more items from the church were discovered at another location.
Tolar says they served a search warrant on their home on Highway 364 and discovered more items taken during burglaries of churches in Prentiss and Tishomingo County dating back to December.
