An Ocean Springs man is charged with Grand Larceny after investigators said he stole a boat trailer from the Old Fort Bayou Boat Launch this week.

Witnesses reported seeing Mark Shannon Gibson at the boat launch Monday hooking the trailer up to a red pick up truck and driving off.

The next day, Ocean Springs Police tracked down the trailer at Martin Luther King Avenue and Weed Street. Deputies said it was being pulled by a 2001 Dodged Dakota driven by Gibson.

The trailer, valued at $1,000, was returned to its owner the same day.

Gibson was taken to the Jackson County Adult Detention Center and is currently awaiting an initial court appearance.
