After a four month search a second suspect wanted in connection with a September burglary of a camper in the Rocky Hill community has been arrested.
The camper was broken into on Sept. 8 while it was parked on Road 2202 near the Neshoba-Leake line, Sheriff's investigator Kevin Baysinger said.
Stolen were a shotgun, a rifle, some DVDs, a DVD player and a chainsaw, he said, noting the door to the camper had been pried open.
Eight days later Jacob Sharp, 28, of 10220 Mississippi 21, Forest, was arrested and charged with burglary of a dwelling. The two guns were recovered.
Billy Shoemaker, 53, of 7595 Hillsboro Road, Forest, has now been charged with burglary of a dwelling.
The missing chainsaw was recovered in Scott County. The DVDs and player remain unrecovered.
