A Mississippi police department has arrested two juveniles, and another is wanted for multiple counts of commercial burglary.

According to the Picayune Police Department, several reports of commercial burglaries were reported Monday morning. Monday night, an officer saw a suspicious person at Dad’s Campers while checking a building. At first, the suspect complied with the officer’s commands, but fled into a wooded area behind American Glass. K9 Officer Treat searched an area and found a vehicle that belonged to that suspect behind a church in the area.

During that search, an officer saw two people run across South Haugh Avenue into a wooded area near Meadowgreen Boulevard. K9 Trea tracked and located those two people.
