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.

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)
