Starkville Man Arrested in Oxford for Auto Burglary, Possession of a Controlled Substance, and Possession of a Weapon by a Convicted Felon
On May 17, 2021, the Oxford Police Department took a report of auto burglary in the 2600 block of West Oxford Loop. Video surveillance was obtained in the area and investigators were able to identify a suspect vehicle.
Patrol officers were notified of the suspect vehicle and were able to locate it later that day. A traffic stop was conducted for a moving violation and the driver was identified as Octavious McMullen, 21, of Starkville, Mississippi. McMullen was subsequently arrested on Possession of a Controlled Substance and Possession of a Weapon by a Convicted Felon after a firearm and illegal narcotics were located inside the vehicle.
Investigators were able to link McMullen to the auto burglary in the 2600 block of West Oxford Loop along with another auto burglary from several weeks prior. McMullen was subsequently charged with two counts of Auto Burglary. A Lafayette County Justice Court judge gave McMullen a $7,500 bond.
The Mississippi Department of Corrections placed a hold on McMullen.
