On October 4th, 2022, the Long Beach Police Department arrested 18 year old Jamarcus Rackley, of Meridian, MS and a juvenile also from Meridian and charged both suspects with 2 counts of Commercial Burglary.

The charges stem from an investigation where the Long Beach Police Department received two separate alarm calls at local businesses that were burglarized.
