JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

A Jackson County woman helped police find two burglary suspects Wednesday, all because she was armed... with a cell phone.

Sheriff Charles Britt said his office received a call around 11am from a homeowner on Utopia Drive who said she was taking pictures with her phone of two men trying to break into her house. When deputies arrived, they secured the house and got the pictures of their suspects.

Using those photos, they were able to track the men down in the backyard of a home on Ocean Springs Road. Deputies ordered the men to lie on the ground, but they both took off running. They were captured after a short chase.

Johnathan Patrick Dallin, 34, from Pascagoula, and Johnny Casmier Wolfe, Jr, 23, from Gulfport, were each charged with attempted burglary of an occupied dwelling. They each face up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine, if convicted.
