Pace said a warrant has been issued for Cody A. Dogan, 22, charging him with auto burglary. Dogan, he said, was out on bond on charges of residential and commercial burglary involving two burglaries that occurred in the county in August.

A warrant charging him with failure to appear was issued after he failed to appear in court for a hearing.

In another case, a Jan. 3 traffic stop on Cobblestone Drive resulted in the arrest of two Warren County teens on theft charges.

Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said Ke-Andre De-Shawn Harris, 18, 108 Foy Circle, and a 17-year-old juvenile each face a charge of possession of stolen property. The juvenile was referred to the Warren County Youth Detention Center.

Harris was released from the Warren County Jail on $20,000 bond.

The arrest follows a 3:20 a.m. traffic stop by Deputy Zach Primeaux after a tag check on the car Harris was driving indicated the vehicle was reported stolen from Vicksburg.

During the stop, deputies found a loaded 9mm Glock handgun with a high capacity 30-round magazine that was reported stolen earlier, Pace said, adding other charges may be pending.
