Police arrested Keith Johnson, 22; Heather Yost, 30; and Deshun Hawthorne, 25, on Tuesday.
The management of the UPS Customer Center on 34th Street reported assorted commercial packages had been stolen in January and February, Gulfport police Sgt. Joshua Bromen said.

A UPS representative could not be reached immediately for comment.
Justice Court Judge Brandon Ladner set bonds for each at $30,000 when police requested arrest warrants.
They were arrested Tuesday and booked at the Harrison County jail.
Yost’s bond was reduced to $10,000 at her initial court appearance. All three have been released from jail, the docket shows.
The investigation is continuing, Bromen said.
