The Oxford Police Department responded to a report of jewelry being stolen from a residence on July 22. Upon arrival, investigators uncovered similar incidents that were being investigated by the Lafayette County Sheriff’s Department. A joint investigation was conducted which led to the recovery of thousands of dollars in stolen jewelry and heirlooms.
A person of interest was identified. Then on August 18, the Oxford Police Department charged Steven Tisdale a 56-year-old man from Blue Mountain, Mississippi with allegedly seven counts of Grand Larceny.
Tisdale is currently in the Desoto County Jail awaiting extradition back to Oxford. His bond was revoked.
