PASS CHRISTIAN, MS (WLOX) -

Two firefighters are out on bond Wednesday night and the investigation that led to their arrests has taken a surprising turn.

37-year-old Jason Hair and 34-year-old Adam Noble are known to put their lives on the line for others, but now they can be seen in mugshots. Hair is charged with grand larceny, and Noble is charged with receiving stolen property.

"Any time that any public servant is either accused of a crime, or arrested for a crime, it's disturbing," Pass Christian Police Chief Timothy Hendricks said.

The pair is accused of stealing a golf cart from the Timber Ridge subdivision on September 30. Chief Hendricks describes the crime as disturbing because of the positions both Hair and Noble hold in the city.

"Mr. Hair was a Lieutenant full time with the Pass Christian Fire Department and Mr. Noble was a part-time employee for the Pass Christian Fire Department and full-time firefighter with the City of D'Iberville," he said.

After following a number of tips, the stolen golf cart was recovered on property located off of Hayes Road in Long Beach, but something else was found on that property. 

"They located a 20 foot utility trailer and inside the trailer they located what is a marijuana grow," Captain Ryan Hearn of the Coastal Narcotics Enforcement Team said.

And another arrest was made, 43-year-old William Watts, who was charged with manufacture of a controlled substance.

As the investigation of the two cases continues, it is not yet clear if and how they may be related. However, Chief Hendricks ensures the public that their dedication to truth and justice won't stop them from protecting and serving.

"We have a job to do and wherever those leads are going to take us, we're going to ensure the public's trust by being transparent and make sure we do all our do diligence correctly," Chief Hendricks said.

Chief Hendricks says they still need your help because more arrests and charges could come. If you have any information about the ongoing investigation, call Crime Stoppers or the Pass Christian Police Department.

    All lanes of Highway 90 are now open. A Mississippi Highway Patrol spokesman says an 18-wheeler crossed the median on Interstate 10 Thursday morning, causing a deadly series of accidents. It was just before 6:00 a.m. That truck was heading west near the Ocean Springs exit. Suddenly, it veered left, crossed the median and smashed into a motorcycle on the eastbound side of I-10.

    WLOX Editorial: Louisiana flood solution, not a good deal for South Mississippi

    We are not strangers to flooding on the Mississippi Coast. Nor are our neighbors to the west in Louisiana. There are forever ongoing efforts, planning and discussions about how to mitigate flooding. But a recent study by the Rand Corporation is more than a little disturbing.
