PELAHATCHIE, Miss. (AP) - Police say two people are accused of a crime spree in Rankin County and are still on the run.

Multiple news sources report authorities have been searching for 23-year-old Leigh Ann Jackson and 18-year-old Joseph Bradley Westerfield. Investigators say the two have been breaking into homes of people they know, including family, stealing items and selling them illegally on social media and in convenience store parking lots since Friday.

Rankin County Investigator Raymond Duke says he believes officials will catch them by week’s end.

The two will face burglary and weapons trafficking charges when caught.
