BALDWYN, Miss. (WTVA) - A person is in custody in Prentiss County following the burglary of a Baldwyn gas station.

Baldwyn police say the burglary happened Thursday morning near 3 a.m. at the Chevron station.

Investigator Adam Cook says a brick was thrown through the store's window and the cash register and cigarettes were taken. No one was inside the store at the time.

The investigation led police to 23-year-old Zachary Strange. He was arrested and charged with the burglary of a commercial building. His bond was set at $15,000.

Prentiss County Sheriff Randy Tolar says Strange has also been charged by the Prentiss County Sheriff's Department with two counts of commercial burglary for two other separate burglaries.

One burglary happened in Marietta on September 22 at a gas station. Strange is accused of stealing $400 and cigarettes.

The second burglary happened at Rubens Chapel Church on September 9. Strange is accused of taking sound equipment, office supplies and kitchen utilities.

Strange is currently being held in the Prentiss County jail.
