GAUTIER, MS (WLOX) - A Gautier man was arrested this week on three counts of residential burglary.
Gautier Police Department public information officer Matt Hoggatt said Shawn Savage, 32, is accused of breaking into three homes on September 30 and taking several items including firearms.
Later that day, Hoggatt reports Savage was stopped for a traffic violation in Pascagoula. That's when the stolen property was discovered in his vehicle.
"Through the course of our investigation, we were able to determine the property came from our burglaries in Gautier," said Hoggatt.
Savage was booked at the Gautier Police Department on a $30,000 bond. Hoggatt said more charges are possible.
