On February 11, 2018, a report was filed with the Tishomingo Sheriff’s Office pertaining to the theft of a tractor from some property that is located on the southern end of the county, near the Prentiss County line.  Investigators with both the Tishomingo County Sheriff’s Office and the Prentiss County Sheriff’s Office began communicating, due to Prentiss County having the same issue recently.  The owner of the tractor then began placing photographs from surveillance camera’s that showed the alleged Suspects on the property and taking the equipment.  Prentiss County Investigators were able to local one of the individuals in the surveillance footage where he was brought to the Tishomingo Sheriff’s Office and charged.  A couple weeks later another individual turned himself in after an ARREST WARRANT was issued for his arrest as well.  The equipment was recovered by both Tishomingo and Prentiss County Investigators some 200 miles south of Iuka.

MARK ANTHONY MICHAEL, 43-year-old, white male of 152 CR 1021 Rienzi, Mississippi was officially charged with GRAND LARCENY.  Bond was set by Justice Court at $1,500.00.

DUSTIN TYLER KING, 29-year-old, white male of 150 CR 1371 Booneville, Mississippi was officially charged with CONSPIRACTY TO COMMIT A CRIME (GRAND LARCENY).  Bond was set by Justice Court at $1,500.00.

Tishomingo County Investigators still have an ACTIVE WARRANT for another individual that they believe to be involved in this crime.  Sheriff John Daugherty would like to thank Prentiss County Sheriff Randy Tolar and his deputies and investigators in assisting his agency in making the arrests and recovering the stolen equipment.  Sheriff Daugherty stated that this is still an ongoing investigation and more arrests are pending.
