PASCAGOULA, MS (WLOX) -

Pascagoula police said two burglary suspects wanted on the coast could also be suspects in a triple homicide in Jackson.

Authorities are searching for Jamison Layne Townsend and an unidentified man seen in surveillance video at Sam’s Jewelry Shop on Tuesday night.

Lt. Doug Adams, with the Pascagoula Police Department, tells WLOX News Now the two drove a red Dodge Charger, and that vehicle matches the description of the vehicle used by the suspects in the Jackson case.

Three people were killed during a robbery of a pawn and jewelry shop in Jackson on Saturday night.

Cmdr. Tyree Jones, with the Jackson Police Department, could only confirm the two departments are sharing information, and that a red Dodge Charger is the suspect car in both cases.

“We are following up on that at this time but have not confirmed this,” Jones said Monday afternoon. “They’re working a burglary, and we’re working a triple homicide, and the only thing we have similar is a red Dodge Charger.”

Adams said Townsend is believed to be from Missouri, and the man could be from the coast.

Anyone with information should contact Pascagoula police at 228-762-2211 or Jackson police at 601-960-1234
