MOSS POINT, MS (WLOX) -

WLOX News has learned more about a Moss Point burglary that netted more than 20 guns, including rifles, pistols and machine guns, and landed seven suspects behind bars.

Princeton Knox, LeKeith Dentrill Smith, Theodore Dempsey Towne, Kenneth Knox, Jessica Romero, Aubrey Knox and Catina Towne-Henderson have been arrested and charged in the case. ATF agents say another suspect, Damien Towne, who is in jail facing other charges is expected to be charged, too.

According to court documents, ATF agents received a tip on May 22 that several guns had been stolen by LaKeith Dentrell Smith and Damien Towne. Five days after that tip came in, a Moss Point man called police to report that someone had broken into his home and stolen numerous firearms. The homeowner told police that he is a federal firearms licensee and he had been out of town since May 13.

Overnight on May 28, ATF agents, Moss Point and Gautier Police, along with the Biloxi SWAT Team, went into a Gautier home where they believed some of the stolen weapons were being hidden. Agents found an empty UZI submachine gun case in the ceiling above the garage and a flat screen TV that was also stolen from the Moss Point home.

Later, according to the report, agents searched a relative's home who lived next door. There agents said they found two rifles and a muzzle loader in a storage shed in the backyard.

While conducting interviews, one of the suspects told agents that on May 15, LaKeith Smith, Damien Towne and Theodore Dempsey went to the Moss Point home and came back about an hour and a half later with several guns.

The day after the burglary, Damien Towne was arrested on unrelated charges, according to court reports. Agents said the other suspects were trying to sell the guns. Two of the suspects allegedly argued with potential buyers stating they needed to get enough money from the guns to bail Damien Towne of out of jail.

According to agents, Kenneth Knox called his brother, Aubrey Knox, who came to the Gautier house where the guns were allegedly being stored and bought six guns.

The report said investigators went with Aubrey Knox to Princeton Knox's home where they found three machine guns in a truck and two other guns and a muzzle loader buried under a dirt pile.

All seven of the suspects facing charges are expected to be in court on Wednesday morning.

ATF agents said several of the stolen guns are still missing. If you have any information on the firearms, you are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-877-787-5898.
