Thanks to the assistance of concerned citizens, deputies arrested a Yazoo County man last week in connection to a home burglary in Eden.
Devarrio Sanders, 20, was charged with residential burglary and directing a youth to commit a felony.
Terry Gann, chief investigator with the Yazoo County Sheriff’s Department, said a juvenile was also arrested along with Sanders. He also said he anticipates more possible arrests in connection with the home burglary.
“The suspect entered the home in Eden by prying the door open,” Gann said. “The suspects stole firearms and two Pit Bull puppies from the home. The homeowner was at work during the incident.”
Gann said concerned citizens were instrumental in assisting investigators with the case.
“We just started knocking on doors and talking with people in the neighborhood,” Gann said. “One citizen assisted with the investigation, leading us to Sanders, who was staying in Eden.
