BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Two Louisiana men are in custody and police are looking for at least two other suspects after four motorcycles were stolen from a Biloxi business early Wednesday morning.
Lt. Chris De Back, with the Biloxi Police Department, said officers responded to an alarm at Suzuki City on Beauvoir Rd. around 2:30 a.m.
Surveillance video shows four men busting through the front double doors and loading four motocross bikes into the back of a waiting U-Haul truck, which was reported stolen out of New Orleans.
A description of the truck was sent out to other officers, and the truck was spotted driving in the area of Cedar Lake Rd. and Popp's Ferry Rd.
The driver reportedly refused to stop for the officer and drove onto I-10 westbound. De Back said the truck stopped near the Tchoutacabouffa River and the two suspects inside jumped out and ran into the woods.
De Back said 25-year-old Brandon Macklin Soublet, of Violet, LA, was arrested more than an hour later with the help of a K9 unit. The second suspect, identified as 30-year-old Brandon Jeremy Johnson, of Mirror, LA, was found walking on Shriners Blvd. a few hours later.
Soublet and Johnson were charged with resisting arrest, burglary, and receiving stolen property. Their bonds were set at $150,000.
De Back said the investigation is ongoing. If you have any information that could help investigators, please call the police department at 228-435-6112 or Crime Stoppers at 1-877-787-5898.
