BYRAM, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Two men charged with multiple church burglaries faced a judge Wednesday morning. 

Kewane Latiker and Amos Simmons, both of Jackson, made their initial appearances in Byram, where their bond was set at $65,000. 

Latiker and Simmons are charged with two burglaries in Byram, two in Jackson and five in Hinds County.

They also face separate charges in Hinds County. 

Investigators say the pair has admitted to taking electronics and musical equipment from the churches, most of which has been recovered by police. 

The items will be returned to the churches later this week.
