Tupelo Police Department

Police responded to Briar Ridge Road around 9:30 p.m. for a disturbance between two females. Officers found a woman standing in the door of a car. She was asked to step away from the car so they could talk to the passenger. She refused both times and pulled away when an officer tried to handcuff her. The 45-year-old woman was charged with driving while intoxicated, disorderly conduct, failure to comply and resisting arrest.

Officers were on foot patrol after 1 a.m. near several motels on McCullough Boulevard when a car approached at a high rate of speed and nearly hit an officer. The car stopped and the female passenger was intoxicated, "extremely emotional and irate." She got more irate when told to keep her hands on the car, saying things would be different if her "f---ing lawyer" was there. The 26-year-old white woman was charged with disorderly conduct, failure to comply and public profanity.

A Lewis Drive woman said her neighbors were being extremely loud and causing a disturbance after 3 a.m. She had video from her security system showing an unknown person throwing several items toward her car.

A West Main business reported that someone stole the contents of a package delivered to the wrong address by Fed Ex. The manager of the second business said they opened the package, then discovered it was not theirs. She closed the box and put it in the back room. Before she could call Fed Ex, the delivery driver returned to get the box. The driver said the employees would not let him in the back room with the packages, which he thought was suspicious. Instead, they retrieved the box, which was then delivered to the right address. It was only later that the man realized more than $500 worth of electronics were missing from the box.

An East Main pharmacy said someone tried to pay for their medicine with a counterfeit $20 bill. The clerk noticed the bill was fake and confronted the suspect, who left the store, leaving the bill behind. The fake money was turned over to police.

An employee at a Garfield Street medical clinic found a 2001 Hyundai Sonata abandoned in the parking lot, behind a rope set up to keep people out after hours. The car was towed.

Anyone with information on any of these crimes is urged to call the Lee County Sheriff's Office at (662) 841-9041 or Crime Stoppers at (800) 773-TIPS.
