A man suspected of house burglaries in rural Yazoo County was recently arrested and charged after he was found in possession of several items reported stolen from the homes.
Josh Rayborn, 31, was charged with house burglary, possession of stolen property and a misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance.
Terry Gann, chief investigator with the Yazoo County Sheriff’s Department, said the investigation began with the first house burglary in Oil City.
“While investigating the first house burglary, we found out that another house right up the road had also been burglarized,” Gann said. “Our investigation led to Rayborn, who we were going to bring in for questioning.”
After deputies located Rayborn, they discovered that he was in possession of several items reported stolen from the two homes, leading to his arrest.
“While we were processing him, we also found a small bag of methamphetamine in his possession,” Gann said.
