A Melville mother and son were arrested for an alleged theft ring, according to Melville Police Chief Anthony Moreau.

Jarrod Beard, 32, was arrested on charges of disturbing the peace, aggravated assault, possession of stolen things more than $1,000. Tammy Beard, 52, was arrested on a charge of aiding in theft property of more than $500.

Moreau says the mother and son were arrested earlier this year on aggravated burglary charges after a string of burglaries was reported in Melville, according to Chief Moreau.

More arrests are expected, Moreau added.
