Police are turning their attention to the city's homes. Chief Keith Davis of the Moss Point Police Department say, "Recently, we have seen a tremendous increase in burglaries." Since the summer months and into the holiday season, Moss Point Police are getting more calls about break-ins. This is the first year since Chief Davis took over as chief that the city will show an increase in violent and property crime. Chief Davis also says, "A lot of arrests have been made, but it seems like so many." The most recent of which was 21 year old, Dailan Carter, who was arrested on Saturday under suspicion of connection to two burglaries this week. Davis says there is no specific area where the burglaries are occurring. He says, "I’m a little concerned with the number, even with the arrests that we're making." Moss Point police have made 86 burglary arrests in the last two years and have sent more cases to the District Attorney's Office every year. Though the burglaries have gone up, the city's detectives are on the streets undercover and have recovered over 40,000 in burglarized property. Chief Davis closes, "I'm confident that we will resolve most of these crimes." Chief Davis reminds residents of Moss Point to remain vigilant of their property.
