On September 1, the Oxford Police Department responded to a business on US 278 for a report of vehicles with missing catalytic converters. At some point during the night, someone had cut them off the work trucks.

On September 12th, officers were called back to the same business for more missing catalytic converters. Another call the same day said that a church van located at a church on Old Sardis Road was missing a catalytic converter.

Detectives learned through the investigation that the suspect was 34-year-old Jeffery Blake Moorehead of Oxford.

A warrant for 8 counts of felony malicious mischief was issued for his arrest.

Moorehead was arrested on September 14th on the outstanding warrant and transported to the Lafayette County Detention Center. His bond was set at $40,000 by a Justice Court Judge but was revoked due to already being out on a separate felony bond.
