RIDGELAND, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

After weeks of searching and concern from residents, two men are behind bars charged in a Ridgeland home invasion that occurred earlier this month.

Thaddeus Jarvis and Gregory Trigg are in the Madison County Jail for armed robbery, kidnapping, conspiracy and burglary. Police say they may be involved in a crime spree that spanned across the metro and south Mississippi.

Ridgeland police say Jarvis and Trigg are prime suspects in a home invasion in the Wendover subdivision, where the victims were tied up and robbed at gunpoint. Both men were being sought for a ATM theft that occurred in Brookhaven earlier this week.

"During the arrest we did recover several firearms we believe were stolen as well as some additional jewelry that was taken in our crime back on September 12 that Mr. Trigg had in his possession at the time," said Ridgeland Police Chief John Neal.

Jarvis was captured in a truck Tuesday evening, stolen out of Brandon, by Richland Police on Highway 49. Police say he also had cocaine, marijuana and cash, which authorities believe was from an ATM theft in Brookhaven earlier this week.

Trigg was captured in Byram at the WoodSpring Suites hotel, where he tried to flee from U.S. Marshals. 

"Based off the information that's out there, they got them along with some ATM thefts we believe they may be responsible for. Some were in the metro Jackson area as well as some auto burglaries and home invasion type crimes," added Neal.

Ridgeland police say the victim in the home invasion, was not so innocent and had dealings in illegal activities themselves and Trigg and Jarvis knew it.

"This was a targeted crime," said Chief Neal. "Nobody in this area should be in any fear of this happening to them. He deals in illegal activities as well so he's also being looked at as well by the Ridgeland Police department."

Both Trigg and Jarvis are expected to make their initial appearance in Ridgeland court on Monday.
