On 10-22-2022 Tupelo Police Officers conducted a traffic stop in the area of Hwy 6 and College Street in South Tupelo. During that stop a passenger, Christopher Stubbs (22 y/o male, Tupelo), was detained for Felony Possession of Narcotics. Narcotics agents will request that charge be enhanced due to Stubbs being in constructive possession of a firearm at the time of his arrest.

In addition, suspect Dominique Witherspoon (20 y/o female, Tupelo) has also been charged with Accessory After the Fact related to the car burglary.
