Four people — including two juveniles — have been charged in a rash of auto burglaries in Jackson County and D’Iberville in a five-hour period, according to a press release from Jackson County Sheriff Mike Ezell.

There were 11 burglaries reported in D’Iberville and seven in Jackson County, occurring between 11:30 p.m. Sunday and 4 a.m. Monday. Ezell said investigators recovered $2,000 in cash, makeup, identification and credit cards.

Christopher Kirkland, 28, and Antonio Leggins, 24, are charged with multiple counts of auto burglary, along with a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old juvenile.

Ezell said patrol deputies and investigators put in many hours to solve the cases.
