Police: Couple was living in overdue rental truck

McCOMB, Miss. (AP) — Police say they have arrested a Mississippi couple found living with their two children and the children's grandmother in an overdue rental truck that had been reported stolen.

Detective Shannon Sullivan told the Enterprise-Journal (http://bit.ly/1nykI6s) that 28-year-old Darnell Varnado and 29-year-old Shantay Varnado of McComb were arrested on one count each of possessing stolen property. They remained in the Pike County jail Thursday. Shantay Varnado's bond was set at $10,000, and Darnell Varnado was held without bond.

Authorities say the state Department of Human Services found a temporary residence for the children and the grandmother after the Varnados were arrested Monday.

Police say that four adults and a newborn baby were also living in the truck until they found housing in June in nearby Monticello.
