JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - Two men are under arrest after investigators say they stole a $3,600 pipe threading machine from a work site at St. Martin High School.
Anthony Jude Ledet, 42, of Ocean Springs and Larry William Robertson, 23, of Biloxi were arrested Wednesday, December 23. Both are charged with commercial burglary.
Jackson County Sheriff's investigators said Ledet had been working at the high school, and stole the machine from his own work site.
Investigators caught up with Ledet at a Biloxi hotel. Robertson was arrested when he went back to the high school to get a payroll check for Ledet.
Both men have been arrested before. Ledet was out on felony bond for the burglary of a dwelling in March 2009. Robertson was on probation for an armed robbery out of Harrison County.
The men are being held at the Jackson County Adult Detention Center, awaiting an initial appearance in county court.
