D’IBERVILLE, Miss. — Authorities say four people have been charged in connection with several auto burglaries that took place over a five-hour period.

Jackson County Sheriff Mike Ezell said in a press release that there were 11 burglaries reported in D’Iberville and seven in Jackson County. The thefts occurred between 11:30 p.m. Sunday and 4 a.m. Monday. Ezell says investigators recovered $2,000 in cash, makeup, identification and credit cards.

The Sun Herald reports that authorities charged 28-year-old Christopher Kirkland, 24-year-old Antonio Leggins, a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old. They each face several counts of auto burglary.

It’s unclear if the accused have lawyers.
