PEARL RIVER COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - A Carriere teen is accused of stealing from three Pearl River County churches, and more arrests may be on the way.
Blake Miley, 18, is charged with three counts of burglary of a church. He's being held on a $60,000 cash bond - $20,000 per charge.
Investigators received some tips from the public about the church break-ins, then tracked down a witness who told officers Miley had talked about the stolen items. Based on those statements and other evidence, Miley was arrested Thursday afternoon.
So far, the stolen property has not been recovered. The investigation is continuing.
