JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

With the help of social media sites, Jackson County Sheriff's deputies made another arrest linked to a St. Martin home burglary on Thursday.

Last week, Christopher Kevin Newton, 44, was arrested for burglary after he was identified through home surveillance video posted to social media sites. Within two hours of the postings, several people came forward with tips identifying Newton.

That same surveillance video led to the arrest of another suspect, 49-year-old Christopher Gregory Fielder, according to Sheriff Mike Ezell.

Fielder and Newton are accused of stealing several TVs, gaming consoles and hang guns from a home on Old Biloxi Road.

Both men remain behind bars at the Jackson County Jail. If convicted, each man faces up to 10 years in prison and $10,000 in fines.
