SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

DEA agents moved in and arrested three men on the coast Tuesday accused of breaking into several pharmacies and stealing prescription medications.

Agents claim the three suspects, Shundrake McKeel, Justin McKeel, and Lamarvin Haynes, are part of a conspiracy that would steal then sell the stolen narcotics in Mississippi and Louisiana. Those drugs include oxycodone, hydrocodone and methadone.

Officials moved in after the trio was spotted leaving the Coast Pharmacy in Ocean Springs, which was burglarized that same night.

We're also learning the suspects are connected to four other pharmacy break-ins in the two states. In Long Beach, a suspect reportedly used a sledgehammer to break through a concrete wall to get inside a pharmacy. Officials say that was all caught on surveillance video. Another break-in happened at the Discount Pharmacy in Wiggins.

We will keep you updated on when the suspects head to court.
