A man, his son and the man’s brother burglarized a neighbor’s home more than once in a week’s time, Jackson County Sheriff Mike Ezell said.

The burglaries were in July at a home on Spring Avenue, Ezell said Friday.

Two guns, prescription medications and cameras were taken, he said.

Vancleave residents Christopher Cole, 43, and his son Brandon Cole, 22, have each been arrested on two counts of burglary. They were taken into custody Wednesday at their home in the 13300 block of Southern Pine Drive.

The father and son were held at the Jackson County jail pending an initial court appearance.

Christopher Cole’s brother, Steven Bowers, 26, faces two counts of burglary. He is being held at the Harrison County jail on unrelated charges.

Bowers was arrested July 21 on a probation warrant involving a prescription forgery conviction in Harrison County, the jail docket shows. He also was wanted on a contempt charge in D’Iberville. A hearing to revoke his probation is set for Sept 22.
