Three men arrested for burglarizing a pharmacy in Choctaw County each receive a one-million dollar bond.

On Saturday, 31-year-old twin brothers Marcus and Maurice Taylor were arrested at a house on Dorgan Street in Jackson.  We’re told 22-year-old Leabrian Myers was arrested during a traffic stop on Gluckstadt Road in Madison County.  The men are being held at the Choctaw County Jail.

"The pharmacy burglary in Ackerman, Miss. in Choctaw County occurred about 5:20 Saturday morning," explains the Director of the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics.

Marshall Fisher says they believe the three men arrested are responsible for at least eight pharmacy burglaries this year.

"They traditionally steal a vehicle before they hit a place.  We have hard evidence these people were carrying weapons in some of these burglaries," continues Fisher.

MBN agents seized nearly 65-hundred doses of narcotics, six marijuana plants, 30-grams of processed marijuana, and a popsicle laced with THC, the chemical compound found in marijuana.

"One thing we recovered was a pill counter.  The reason for that investment: you're moving a lot of pills," adds Fisher.

The three men could face more charges.

We’re told  the arrests were made after a six-month long investigation into a series of pharmacy burglaries called "The Trash Bag Gang."
