Police say two Gulfport men are accused of taking items from a home where they were staying.

Jeremy Michael Roach, 21, and Allen Thomas Edwards, 20, are each charged with grand larceny. They are being held at the Harrison County jail on $15,000 bond each set by Justice Court Judge Brandon Ladner.

Sgt. Joshua Bromen said police received a call from the victim, who said Roach and Edwards had been staying with him at a residence in the area of 53rd Street and Kendall Avenue.

The victim said several guitars and a television were missing from the residence.

On Monday morning at 12:47 a.m., Gulfport officers conducted a traffic stop near 25th Avenue and 34th Street. In the vehicle, officers found the stolen items, Bromen said.

Roach and Edwards were taken into custody without incident.
