Multiple agencies are requesting the public's help after several high-value weapons were stolen in Moss Point. Friday, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms held a press conference alongside Moss Point, Biloxi, and Gautier Police Departments. The agencies are working together to locate all the weapons stolen from a private residence. Some weapons have been recovered from a Gautier residence, and six people are in federal custody. More arrests and charges are expected to develop as the investigation continues.

Chief Keith Davis of the Moss Point Police Department says, “If an individual purchases any of these weapons, additional charges will be brought against those individuals as well. We want to make sure that people understand that you cannot buy stolen weapons. Law enforcement has no jurisdictional bounds. We will come get you. If you commit a crime against the state or federal judicial system, law enforcement will come get you.”

The Moss Point Police Department has an active warrant out for the arrest of Catina Towne. Towne is believed to live in Gautier. Anyone with any information is urged to call the Moss Point Police Department at (228) 475-1711.
