Burglaries

Police: Suspects linked to several burglaries

Four Oxford men have been arrested and charged with committing several burglaries in the city of Oxford and Lafayette County.

On Oct. 5, a deputy responded to a burglary at a home off Old Highway 7 North, Lafayette County Sheriff’s Department Investigator Scott Mills said. While the deputy was interviewing the victims, he obtained information about the suspects and their vehicle.

A short time later, a Mississippi Highway Patrol trooper pulled over a vehicle that matched the description and searched the vehicle where he found stolen items from the burglary on Old Highway 7 North.

Arrested were Steven Obermeier, 19, Lee Earnest Liggins, 23, Shawntez D’Angelo Draper, 19, and Corey Terrell Moody, 21, all of Oxford. (October 28, 2010, Page 2)
