McCOMB — McComb starting quarterback Cam Morris, who was originally arrested for burglary by the McComb Police Department on Thursday, was charged Friday with one count of trespassing in a habitation where a person is present or likely to be present, a felony, according to the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office website.
The McComb Police Department reported that a call was received at 12:30 p.m. Thursday about a suspicious man at 316 Southcrest Drive in McComb. The caller said the person did not have permission to be at the residence, but had entered the home.
Morris, of rural McComb, was arrested and was held Thursday night in the Hancock County jail. He was no longer in the jail Friday night.
The incident is still under investigation. McComb police are encouraging anyone with information to contact them at 419-293-3667.
Morris, 18, a senior, helped lead the Panthers to an 8-1 record and 7-0 mark in the Blanchard Valley Conference this season. The Panthers are the last team unbeaten in BVC play and clinched a share of the league title Friday night, in a game Morris did not play in.
The Panthers beat Pandora-Gilboa (7-2, 5-2 BVC) on Friday night and will play Liberty-Benton (8-1, 6-1 BVC) on Oct. 27.
