PASCAGOULA, MS (WLOX) -

Two Jackson County men are behind bars accused of a home invasion Monday, as well as several other crimes.

Monday morning around 9:30, Pascagoula Police were called to a home on 11th Street. The homeowners said two white men armed with handguns had forced their way inside the home. One held the residents at gunpoint, while the other moved around the home choosing items to steal. The men eventually left in a black Dodge pickup truck.

The victims were able to describe the truck to police, and officers later spotted it near 14th Street and Oldsmobile Highway. When the officers tried to make a traffic stop, the driver refused to stop.

At the intersection of Eagle Street and Albatross Avenue, both men jumped out of the truck and fled on foot. After a brief chase, both men were apprehended by K9 Rambo.

Randall Alan Williams, 34, of Pascagoula, and Christopher Allen Joiner, 33, of Moss Point are both charged with Home Invasion, and violating parole with Mississippi Department of Correction.

Williams faces an additional charge of Possession of a Stolen Firearm. Joiner faces additional charges of Felony Evading Police and Possession of Stolen Property.

Both men were also wanted by the Jackson County Sheriff's Department for armed robbery. They're being held at the Jackson County Adult Detention Center.
