ITAWAMBA COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) – Investigators believe two Itawamba County burglaries are related.

One burglary involved the Texaco gas station off Country Club Road in Fulton. The other burglary involved Mantachie Pizza and Subs off Watson Drive.

Both incidents happened during the early morning hours of Monday.

Fulton police say two people forced their way into the Texaco in Fulton and got away with money.

The owner of the Mantachie restaurant says loose change was taken. Mantachie Police Chief Mark Roberts says it appears the suspect(s) broke in through the front door.

On Wednesday, Roberts says a white four-door sedan vehicle with a dent on the passenger-side door was seen on surveillance video in both areas.

Anyone with information on these two cases is urged to contact Mantachie or Fulton police.
