Two men were arrested Tuesday after Biloxi police say they were caught attempting to break into a construction trailer in the 100 block of Main Street.

Police Lt. Christopher De Back said Garnel Linwood Curley and Charles Martel Oatis were arrested after police saw them running away after attempting to break into the construction trailer.

Both were apprehended a short time later, De Back said. They were arrested on a charge of attempted burglary of a commercial building.

Judge Albert Fountain set Curley’s bond at $50,000 and Oatis’ bond at $25,000.
