NATCHEZ — Natchez Police arrested three males Thursday in connection with a house burglary in the 800 block of Myrtle Avenue Tuesday.

Kyrikus Mason, 22, 1-D Lincoln St., Larry Griffin Jr., 18, 72 Auburn Ave., and Richard Norman III, 17, 1-D Lincoln St., are each charged with one count of burglary of a dwelling, Lt. Craig Godbold said Friday. They are being held at the Natchez City Jail on $30,000 bond each.

Godbold said the suspects allegedly stole a 52-inch television, a computer, a printer and assorted jewelry from the residence.

Following the burglary, a neighborhood witness wrote down the license plate number of the suspected getaway car, which led to the arrests.

Godbold said investigators are working to recover the stolen items, and one item has been recovered so far.

“(The television) had been sold to somebody on the street, and we had to track down that person and recover it,” Godbold said.

Goldbold said Norman, who is a minor, is being charged as an adult.
