CALHOUN COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) – A Christmas Eve tip leads investigators to an arrest in a series of Calhoun County burglaries.

Calhoun County Sheriff Greg Pollan says deputies arrested Ronald Gene Ruth, 27, of Derma, Tuesday night.

Pollan says the arrest came after a stolen Can-Am side-by-side motorcycle was found at Ruth’s home during a search warrant.

A second search warrant led to the discovery of more items stolen from a Derma business in August.

Ruth also faces charges of possession of meth and marijuana with intent to distribute.

Pollan says more charges could be filed in the case as the investigation continues.
