A man and a woman from Pass Christian, along with a man from Picayune, were each arrested on four counts of vehicle burglary, Harrison County Sheriff Troy Peterson said.

Sheriff’s deputies arrested 21-year-old Bobby Charles Morgan Jr., of Picayune, 23-year-old Derick Robert Bonnet, of Pass Christian, and 22-year-old Jordan Micheaela Duggan, also of Pass Christian, on Friday.

Peterson said deputies responded to the 7100 block of Thompson Road in Long Beach after complaints of a suspicious vehicle and suspicious people.

Witnesses saw Morgan and Bonnet being dropped off by Duggan and then knocking on a resident’s door, Peterson said, and the resident who opened the door confronted one of the men, who then fled into the woods.

Deputies located the vehicle driven by Duggan in the neighborhood, and further investigation led to deputies finding and recovering property reported stolen in Hancock and Harrison counties.

Morgan, Bonnet and Duggan were taken to the Harrison County jail. They are each held on a $100,000 bond set by Justice Court Judge Diane Ladner.
