A Carthage woman was charged in connection with a February burglary at a house in the Rocky Hill community where several household items were taken and later sold as scrap, the sheriff said.
Molly Huff, 30, 2550 Gooshen, Carthage, was charged Friday with two counts of breaking and entering a residence on Road 105, Sheriff Tommy Waddell said.
Several items were taken in the burglary, including an iron bed frame, table, candleholders, pots and pans and other metal household items, Waddell said.
The stolen items were taken to a Philadelphia scrap yard and sold, he said.
"She got less than $100 for everything," Waddell said, noting the owner was staying with her daughter when the theft occurred.
None of the items were recovered.
"We got a lead that Huff was staying at a friend's house," Waddell said. "We waited for her and when she arrived we arrested her."
Huff remained in the Neshoba County Jail Tuesday awaiting bond.
The case will be turned over to the grand jury, Waddell said.
