A burglary suspect was held at gunpoint by his female victim after he was accused of attempting to set up residency inside her vacant camper.
Marshall Scott, 33, was charged with breaking and entering of an unoccupied dwelling last Thursday.
Terry Gann, chief investigator with the Yazoo County Sheriff’s Department, said the incident occurred on a piece of property near Graball Road. He said the property had two houses and one camper on it. One of the houses was empty while the other was home to the victim.
“The suspect broke into the home that was unoccupied,” Gann said. “He took some clothes and a heater out it. He then took those items and went into the camper, which was also empty on the property. He then began to set up living inside the camper.”
Gann said the female victim returned home and noticed someone inside the camper.
“She held the suspect at gunpoint until deputies arrived,” Gann said. “After being held at gunpoint, he went into our custody very peacefully.”
