Two Clay County residents are charged in connection with breaking into the storage area at the Clay County White Goods Collection Center on Highway 47 near Lake Grove Road.

According to Sheriff Eddie Scott, 42-year-old Gregory Moore is charged with burglary in the case after two lawn mowers stolen during the burglary were found at his residence in Cedar Bluff. His wife, 48-year-old Karla Moore, is charged with accessory after the fact of burglary. The two live at the same address in Cedar Bluff.

The burglary occurred between March 2 and March 5. Investigators developed the two as suspects and served a search warrant on their residence, recovering the lawn mowers, Scott said.

Bond is set at $2,500 for Karla Moore and $5,000 for Gregory Moore.

A hold by the Mississippi Department of Corrections has also been placed on Gregory Moore for prior burglary convictions in Monroe County.

The White Goods Collection site is on the grounds of an old school building. It’s a free site for residents to dispose of appliances, mattresses, and other household items, but not household garbage. Some materials are taken to the landfill and others are sorted out and stored inside the building for sale as scrap, Scott explained. Moore is accused of breaking into the building, which constitutes burglary, the sheriff said.
