A Pascagoula man suspected of committing multiple auto burglaries was arrested Tuesday after he cashed in casino chips taken in one of the burglaries.

Ocean Springs Capt. William Jackson said Bryan Cornell Marshall, 27, was charged with seven counts of auto burglary. Courtney Chantel Minor, 36, of Ocean Springs, was charged with accessory after the fact.

Jackson said several auto burglaries had been committed in the city. Vehicle windows were smashed and items taken. In one burglary, almost $700 in casino chips from Beau Rivage Resort and Casino were taken. A person, identified as Marshall, provided identification and cashed in the chips.

The investigation led to him and Minor. They were located at their residence and taken into custody.

Marshall had bond set at $80,000 ($10,000 per count) and Minor had bond set at $2,000, set by Judge Matthew Mestayer.

The case is still under investigation by Ocean Springs Police and more charges could be filed, Jackson said in a press release.

Anyone with information is asked to call Ocean Springs Police at 228-875-2211 or Crime Stoppers at 1-877-787-5898.
