LOWNDES COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) — Formal charges have been filed against three men caught allegedly trying to burglarize a Lowndes County home Friday.
Lowndes detectives say Quinton Hill, 21, Demario Guyton, 20, and Joseph Rush, 22, all are charged with burglary in connection with the break in at a vacant home on Highway 69 South at Gibson Road.
Hill also is charged with possession of a controlled substance.
The three were caught when a neighbor, H.L. Elmore, spotted a suspicious truck parked in the side yard of the home. He used his truck to block the other truck’s escape route and then confronted the three.
He held them on the ground until deputies arrived.
