Two Burglary Suspects Sought

Two men accused of committing burglaries in three Mississippi counties are being sought by police.

The two are accused of crimes in Newton, Jasper and Scott counties.

Korey Robinson and Desome Evans, both in their early to mid-20s, are suspects in cases that happened within the last three to four months.

"We're trying to develop leads," said Mike Williams, a detective with Newton Police Department. "We have some unsolved burglaries around here they may be connected to."

"Investigators say the good news is that so far no one has been injured in any of the burglaries. However, their concern now is that someone could be injured in the future because the suspects are thought to have already stolen a number of guns. Several rifles were stolen May 20 in Jasper County.

"Any time in one burglary several guns are taken, it's cause for concern," Williams said.

At this time investigators say it's unknown exactly how many burglaries the men may have committed.

"It's hard to tell. Some people don't report the burglaries, but as they learn about the investigation, we're hoping that they would come forward and so we would actually know because they are stealing guns," said Williams. "We want to get the guns off the street."

Because the men are thought to be armed and dangerous, people are advised not to approach them but instead contact their local authorities.
