D'IBERVILLE, MS (WLOX) -

D'Iberville and Biloxi police are trying to figure out if suspects arrested for overnight auto-burglaries in Biloxi are also the suspects for the same crime in D'Iberville. WLOX News spoke to a victim in the D'Iberville burglaries, who says she doesn't care who the suspect or suspects is she just wants them off the streets.

"As American people, we work hard for our things. To have people just come in and destroy, I feel violated," said Valerie Brown.

Brown says she slept at her mother's home on Springdale Circle in D'Iberville Sunday night. When she woke up Monday morning, she found all the doors of her vehicle wide open and some of her belongings inside gone.

"I looked at my car and I saw where my dashboard was messed up and I saw where we keep all my paperwork at and all that was destroyed all over my car. And then I opened up the part where my CDs and everything are, all that was taken," said Brown.

Brown then called D'Iberville police, who say another victim also reported a car burglary. After learning Biloxi police made three arrests for auto burglaries early Monday morning, D'Iberville police say they are trying to figure out if the Biloxi suspects are linked to the burglaries in their city.

"During the course of the investigation it was discovered that they maybe responsible for some burglaries in D'Iberville. They're investigating those allegations at this time," said Lt. Christopher DeBack with Biloxi police.

According to Lt. DeBack, 18-year-old Deandre Isaiah Payton and two juveniles were arrested near Popps Ferry Road shortly before 1 a.m. Monday after a resident on Heron Cove says she saw the suspects in her vehicle. DeBack says many of the vehicles the suspects allegedly burglarized were unlocked. Brown says hers was also unlocked because she says crime has never been an issue in the area. But she doesn't think that anymore.

"I would hope that you would find it in your heart that you would not take other people's things that work hard for their belongings. I'm a single mother and I work hard for what I have," said Brown.

Again, police say they are still trying to determine if Payton and the two juveniles are tied to the burglaries in D'Iberville. Biloxi police say the suspects were found with a backpack carrying a stolen firearm, sunglasses, cigarettes, cell phones, iPods and a large amount of coins.

The two juveniles were charged with two auto burglaries. Payton was also charged with two auto burglaries and possession of a stolen firearm. He was taken to the Harrison County jail on a $75,000 bond. If you have any information on this case you can share tips with Mississippi Coast Crime Stoppers: http://www.mscoastcrimestoppers.com/.

    Mississippi’s giant house party might not have the fanfare of 2016. But, it’s still a must visit event for families across the magnolia state. This year is not a political year in Mississippi. So, the political stumping is not nearly as significant as it can be. Yet, this Wednesday and Thursday, people will gather under the pavilion at Founders Square and listen to a series of speeches from Mississippi’s elected leaders.
