The arrests of three Wilmer, Ala., residents accused in a home invasion in the Howell community include multiple felony charges on assorted crimes, Sheriff Keith Havard said.

Bonds have been set at $750,000 for Joseph Bradley Weaver, 20. He’s being held at the George County jail on 11 felony charges that include armed robbery, burglary of an occupied dwelling, grand larceny, auto theft and burglary. Most of the charges listed involve a home invasion reported Sept. 19, Havard said.

Robert Michael James Rankin, 32, and Adrienne Cheyenne Campbell, 24, are being held with no bond at the Mobile Metro jail pending extradition to George County.

All three were involved in the recent home invasion on Walt Tanner Road, Havard said.

A woman had reported two armed men forced their way inside her home and stole some of her belongings, including firearms.

Campbell and Rankin face the same charges as those listed for Weaver. Campbell is wanted on a total of 10 felony charges and Rankin on six, Havard said.

Campbell and Rankin were arrested in Mobile County on Sept. 29. Deputies recovered a stolen vehicle and 16 firearms, believed to be stolen, when they arrested Campbell in Semmes. Officials said Weaver ran into woods to avoid arrest.

Weaver was arrested Tuesday.

Weaver is a person of interest in the burglary of a Moss Point home on Tuesday, Jackson County Sheriff Mike Ezell said.

Thirteen guns and $600 were stolen from the residence. The stolen goods were inside a stolen truck Bradley allegedly took. The truck and guns were found at a Grand Bay truck stop Tuesday. Mobile County has filed a charge of auto theft against Weaver, Ezell said.

Mobile County deputies turned Weaver over to George County deputies.

Anyone with information about the crimes is asked to call the George County Sheriff’s Office at 601-947-4811. Or tipsters can call Crime Stoppers at 1-877-787-5898.
