Biloxi Police need your help finding a burglary suspect. A warrant has been issued for Jerry Lewis Williams III.

Officials tell us the 26-year-old Biloxi resident is wanted in connection with an overnight automobile burglary investigation.

Thursday night, Biloxi Police responded to a burglary call in the 13500 block of John Lee Road. Officers were then given a description of the suspect vehicle, which was later found near the area of Highway 605 and Dedeaux Road in Gulfport.

By the time investigators arrived, Williams had already fled on foot but the driver of the car, 27-year-old Shawna Lee Hover, was arrested. Several pieces of the victim's stolen property were found in Hover's car.

She is now booked in the Harrison County Adult Detention Center, charged with Burglary of an Auto. No bond was set for Hover due to a Prescription Forgery charge she is currently out on bond for.

If you have any information on Williams whereabouts, please contact the Biloxi Police Department at 228-392-0641 or Crime Stoppers.
