A County Road 130 Shannon man said his cousin took his car and had been gone all day. While the deputy was taking the report at 9:30 p.m., the cousin drove up returning the car.

A County Road 261 Tupelo man said a black male acquaintance came into his house and stole $40. He said they were in a verbal dispute and the friend pulled a gun and pointed it at him. The friend said the man accused him of stealing and pointed a firearm at him and his son.

A County Road 1498 Auburn woman said a man was walking down the road swatting his hat at one of her dogs. She said her chihuahua ran out into the road and the man threw a “chunk of a tree limb,” hitting the small dog in the head. The dog fell and appeared to have a seizure, so she rushed him to the veterinarian.

A County Road 878 Tupelo man found a black 2012 Toyota Corolla on his property. He is not sure how long it has been there. The car was towed.

A Drive 1762 Tupelo woman heard her dogs barking outside around 12:30 a.m. She looked out the window and saw a white male in the yard. The suspect ran south toward an abandoned house.

An employee at a County Road 2878 Baldwyn business said a black male drove up around 12:45 a.m. wanting to borrow the man's phone to call his girlfriend inside the factory. He told the suspect that the plant has a break at 1 a.m. and he could talk to her then. The suspect left and came back at 1 a.m. to pick up the girlfriend. When he did, the suspect cursed at the man, saying, "We know who you are."
