A tip from Crime Stoppers led to the arrest of a Tupelo man for allegedly posing as workmen and stealing credit cards.

Tupelo Police have arrested Deandrea Oshan Hull, 29, and charged him with two counts of credit card fraud and one count of grand larceny.

Authorities said Hull had convinced an elderly resident of a West Main Street Apartment that he was an exterminator. While he pretended to spray the apartment, he reportedly stole several credit cards.

Hull was also allegedly connected to a November 22 grand larceny case on North Hill Drive where several items were taken from a home while Hull worked on a construction crew.

On Tuesday, Tupelo Municipal Court Judge Sumner set bond at $5,000 for two counts of credit card fraud and $12,500 for one count of grand larceny.

Information from Crime Stoppers of North East Mississippi and the rapid cooperation of the crew doing construction on North Hill Drive were instrumental in tying these two cases to Hull, according to TPD.
