From Prentiss County Sheriff's Department
During the early morning hours of Monday, July 23, the Prentiss County Sheriff's Office received the report of a suspicious vehicle at Silome Methodist Church on County Road 4101.

Deputies Jeremy Pace and Dennis Peeks responded and found the vehicle containing property taken from the church. Additional items identified as being taken from Silome Methodist Church were recovered at another location, where they had been stashed.

The suspects fled into the woods behind the church but
were later apprehended by deputies on the scene.

The pair are identified as husband and wife, Gregory Odel Robinson, 41, and Mary Gwen Robinson, 41, of 1162 Highway 364 in Tishomingo.

Investigation revealed the pair have been responsible for other
burglaries dating as far back as December of last year. Some of the
items taken from Silome Methodist Church were recovered from the
suspects' vehicle.

A search warrant was executed at their residence and other items were recovered that led deputies to believe they were responsible for burglaries in both Prentiss and Tishomingo counties.

They are charged with two counts of burglary of a building
(church) and possession of burglary tools. Their bonds have been set
at $20,000 each.
