Police have arrested the second of four people wanted in the thefts of a car dolly and an enclosed trailer, the latter found destroyed by fire.

Police arrested Sandie Bourgeois Houston, 25, on Thursday on two counts of grand larceny.

Houston was held at the Harrison County jail on bonds of $100,000 set by Judge Melvin Ray.

Both thefts were reported Dec. 6, Detective Brad Gross said.

Karl Michael Carpenter, 33, a felon on probation, was arrested Tuesday on the same charges.

Gross said the other two are Jeffrey Mark Kieff, 28, and his wife, Danielle Amber Kieff, 29. They are in the St. Tammany Parish jail in Louisiana, where they face other felony charges.

The four are suspected in the Dec. 2 theft of a trailer taken from a man’s yard on Parkwood Drive while he was out of town, Gross said. The trailer held a motorcycle body, engine and other motorcycle parts. They also are accused in the theft of a car dolly from Smith Goodyear Tire & Auto Services on Pineville Road.

The trailer was found burned in woods behind a Bay St. Louis casino. It had been set on fire intentionally, Gross said.

The dolly was found in a Bay St. Louis cul-de-sac abandoned since Hurricane Katrina, he said.
