Suspect sought in Monday burglary

STARKVILLE -- Starkville police are searching for suspects involved in an apartment burglary Monday night. 

 

Officers responded around 9 p.m. to 28 Jarnigan Street, where more than $2,550 of electronics had been stolen. Starkville Police Detective Scotty Carrithers said an Xbox 360, games and a 42-inch flat screen TV were among the items. 

 

While the burglary isn't uncommon, the setting was unusual, Carrithers said. One of two roommates left the apartment around 7 p.m. and locked the door on the way out. The suspect managed to pick the lock, come inside and steal the goods without the other roommate -- who was in his bedroom -- noticing. 

 

There currently aren't any suspects or witnesses to the burglary. 

 

"It's not common we have someone going into someone's house when they're there," Carrithers said. "We'll call the pawn shops, try to get out and touch base with the neighbors." 

 

 

 

Another charge pending for Moore 

 

After being charged with five counts of auto burglary Thursday afternoon, 21-year-old Joshua Moore may receive an additional charge. 

 

Carrithers said a sixth victim reported iPod accessories stolen from her vehicle at Camden Place on Louisville Street. Moore had already confessed to taking the items. Carrithers said the information received from the sixth victim fits the time frame and location. 

 

Moore's bond has since been changed from $15,000 to $25,000 for the five burglary charges. The sixth charge could push his bond to $30,000. Moore is currently being held at the Oktibbeha County Jail, where he's also on a Mississippi Department of Corrections hold for violation of probation for stealing a car in 2011.
