Grand Larceny Arrests

Posted on: September 25th, 2018 by: Lt. Sheri Hall  Categories:

On Sept 18, 2018 the Lee County Sheriff’s Department received a report from the Mooreville, MS area about the theft of tractors, equipment and vehicles from a residence.

The complainant/landowner reported that four (4) tractors, two (2) vehicles, and numerous personal items were stolen from inside the home and an unattached barn. The landowner reported that value of the stolen items were in excess of $13,000 dollars.

During the course of this investigation, and after speaking with witnesses, it was determined that some of the items had been listed on social media for sale by the suspect(s). Unknowing purchasers responded to the online ads and purchased items from the suspect(s). It was further discovered that the suspects had made claims that the property had been inherited from a deceased relative. The actual property owner is alive.

Two arrests were made by the Lee County Sheriff’s Department in connection with the investigation. Suspects Louis Rodgers and Renshay Dean were arrested and charged with Grand Larceny by the Lee County Sheriff’s Department. Both suspects received a $50,000.00 bond pending presentation to the Lee County Grand Jury.

The Lee County Sheriff’s Department is actively recovering the stolen property and is asking that anyone who may have purchased items from either of the suspects contact the Lee County Sheriff’s Department at 662-680-5766.
