Deon Darden 26 of Memphis & Daniel Jackson 27 of Memphis – Credit Card Fraud

On February 4th the Oxford Police Department received information from the Olive Branch Police Department in reference to possible credit card frauds that occurred in Oxford. After further investigation, it was discovered that there were several incidents of credit card fraud that had occurred. These incidents took place at Home Depot, Office Depot and Kroger. The suspects, later identified as Deon Darden and Daniel Jackson, went into these store and bought multiple MasterCard gift cards in numerous amounts with fraudulent credit cards. On February 8th Darden and Jackson were located and arrested for credit card fraud. Both were taken before Judge Carolyn Bell for their Initial Appearance and their bond was set at $20,000. We have notified the individuals that had their credit card information stolen, they had no idea at the time. There could be more victims as we have learned that these men were working out of Memphis and possibly targeting the mid-south area. We are asking for all residents to check their credit card accounts to make sure they have not had their accounts used also.

***Possible Strong Arm Robbery***
Officers took a walk in report late yesterday afternoon where they spoke with a victim that stated the previous night he was walking on Mall Drive ( Near Jackson Ave and the Intermural Fields) when a light colored sedan pulled up beside him. The passenger, black male, got out and told him to give him his backpack. The victim did not give a description of the driver, only that he was a black male. At this time we do not believe a weapon was used and cannot link this case with any of the other robberies. There were no injuries and the case is still under investigation.

R-Fortner-750

Robert Fortner- Burglary & Kidnapping

On Sunday, January 31, at approximately 3:21 AM the Oxford Police Department arrested Robert Fortner(37 of Courtland, MS.) for Burglary and Kidnapping. Officers were dispatched to the corner of N. Lamar and Jefferson Ave. for a possible disturbance. The caller stated that he saw a white male and an older white female at that location and he believed the female was in distress. When officers arrived they found what they believed to be the same thing. As they approached the female she ran to them and the male, Robert Fortner, threw an object at the officers and began approaching in an aggressive manner. Officers had to take Fortner to the ground after he resisted their commands. Once Fortner was secure they were able to speak with the victim. She told officers that she heard someone outside her home and saw Fortner rummaging through her backyard. By the time she got out of bed and into the living area Fortner had already made entry. She attempted to call 911 but Fortner took her phone. She ran outside and Fortner chased her down. He told her that he was owed money and he was taking her to go get it. By this time they had made it to the corner of N. Lamar & Jefferson Ave. She was attempting to reason with him when a witness drove by and called us. The victim does not know Fortner and when Investigators interviewed him he had no knowledge of the events and believed he was in Tupelo, MS. We believe alcohol and drugs was a contributing factor. The case is still ongoing and Fortner was given a bond of $50,000. He has posted bond.
