FLOWOOD, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

What started as a man with bloody hands and an unopened safe, has turned into four arrests for house burglary.

The arrests come after Flowood police checked out a blue Chevy Tahoe broken down on Flowood Drive. Lt. Ricky McMillian says a man, Jeremy Course, was spotted coming out of the woods with blood on his face and hands.

Officers discovered a 9 millimeter pistol, a safe and a pair of athletic shoes in the wooded area the man came from and he was taken into custody.

Another man, Anthony Morrow, eventually came out of the woods. Both are charged with house burglary after officers had the safe drilled open and discovered it belonged to a resident on Fannin Road.

Two females circling the area, Betty Jean Course and Sandra Course, were arrested and charged with accessory after the fact. Two burglary suspects are still at large.

A canine unit and Metro One helicopter were brought in to assist in the search and other law enforcement agencies, including Rankin County Sheriffs Department, Pearl Police and Mississippi Highway patrol.
