Upon arrival, officers cleared the business and spoke with the business owner. Officers were informed that two firearms were taken from the business.

On May 10, after further investigation, 37-year-old Lance M. Smith (from Tupelo) was arrested and charged with Burglary of a Commercial Building.

On May 10, Tupelo Municipal Court Judge Weir ordered Smith to be held on a $35,000 bond.
