The Covington County Sheriff’s Office is asking for help in finding a Vicksburg couple who are suspected of burglarizing a church bakery in Seminary, Mississippi.

On Sunday, April 26, a friend of the owner of Jesus’ Name Apostolic Church Bakery in Seminary was traveling on U.S. Highway 49 and noticed a car parked at the bakery, which was closed at the time. The bakery is owned by Bobbie Jo Harrell. The car looked out of place, so he went to investigate.

When he pulled up, he saw a man in the car and a woman walking out of the back of the building with items in her hands. He confronted the woman, and she took off in the car with the man.

The witness identified Megan Norris as the woman leaving the bakery, and her husband, Nicholas Norris, as the man in the car. A check of the area revealed a shovel had been used to pry the back door open.

Megan Tunnell Norris is a 36-year-old white female. The address on her Mississippi driver’s license is in Haley’s Point Road in Warren County.

Nicholas Brandon Norris is also 36. He has a Horn Lake address on his Mississippi identification card.

If you know the whereabouts of these two individuals, please contact the Covington County Sheriff’s Office at 601-765-8281 or Crime Stoppers at 601-355-TIPS.
