D’Iberville police used routine patrols, video surveillance footage, K-9 officers and social media posts to investigate a commercial burglary and arrest a Biloxi man and a juvenile.
Dillon Alexander Quinn, 21, of Biloxi and a 17-year-old were arrested Wednesday on two counts of commercial burglary.
D’Iberville Police Capt. Marty Griffin said an officer was conducting business checks Monday at 3:30 a.m. when he saw two individuals behind Taranto’s Shop on Gorenflo Road.
The two fled on foot when the officer approached. The D’Iberville and Harrison County Sheriff’s K-9 officers assisted in the search for the suspects along with officers from the Biloxi Police Department, but the individuals eluded officers.

Detectives obtained video surveillance footage that showed the individuals enter the building once before midnight Sunday and again at 3 a.m. Monday.
Police received information Quinn and the juvenile were the two who committed the burglary after posting photographs of the suspects on social media.
The suspects were located in Biloxi and evidence recovered from a residence by D’Iberville and Biloxi police detectives led to their arrest.
Quinn was taken to the Harrison County jail. In addition to two counts of commercial burglary, he was charged with two counts of possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance, and he is being held on $50,000 bond.
The juvenile was transported to the Harrison County Juvenile Detention Center.
