Oxford Gas Station Employee Arrested for Alleged Theft

Mary Apel

A man has been jailed for allegedly stealing almost $3,000 from the two gas stations where he worked.

On September 3rd at approximately 7:30 PM, officers were dispatched to Marquis
Chevron on South Lamar Blvd. and the Marathon Gas Station on South Lamar Blvd. for a reported
theft of money. Officers learned that a current employee at both locations, who was off duty at the
time, entered the businesses and took roughly $2,800 from the two locations.

The suspect was identified as Brandon Pettis, 19, of Oxford. Investigators were called to the scene
and a search warrant was obtained which ultimately led to the discovery of the missing money. Pettis
was subsequently arrested for Grand Larceny. A Lafayette County Justice Court judge issued Pettis a
$15,000 bond.

This is still an ongoing investigation and further information could be added at a later date.
