A Shannon man was arrested this week for allegedly stealing an Oxford city work truck.

According to reports, on Oct. 14, the Oxford Police Department was contacted by the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department about a city of Oxford work truck being reported stolen.

Officers were unaware of a missing vehicle so they contacted the department within the city and confirmed a work truck was missing from the parking lot.
