PASCAGOULA, MS (WLOX) - A Moss Point man who police believe has burglarized a Pascagoula pharmacy four times was arrested Monday for allegedly doing it again.

Pascagoula Police were called to The Medicine Shoppe on Market Street around 3am Monday when the burglar alarm was triggered. When officers arrived, they saw the front window was broken and a vehicle was speeding away on Convent Avenue. Several officers checked out the store, while others stopped the vehicle.

The car was driven by Pierre Deonte Williams, and occupied by Demario Dominque Coleman. During the stop officers noticed several pharmacy size bottles of prescription cough medicine. Both men were taken to the Pascagoula Police Department and charged with one count of Commercial Burglary.

Piearre Deonte Williams, 20 of Pascagoula, was released on a $10,000 bond. Demario Dominque Coleman, 19 of Moss Point, is being held in Pascagoula Municipal Jail with no bond pending a preliminary hearing on March 17.

At the time of his arrest, Coleman was out on bond for four previous burglaries of The Medicine Shoppe in 2008.

Darren Versiga, who works with the store's security, isn't surprised to see a repeat offender.

"Some of the reasons are addiction, other reasons are they can sell it on the market. The last time we investigated this, I was part of the investigating. And we actually videoed them mixing it up in Mountain Dew and drinking it. It gives them a high, that's what they call 'syruping.' And they sell it on the street. I don't know what the market is for it know, but that is usually what they do with it. They are probably addicted to the product," Versiga told WLOX News.
