Neshoba – Multiple Arrests Made For Recent Burglaries Including Philadelphia Country Club


Burglary arrests have been made in Neshoba. The Neshoba County Sheriff’s office announced that Investigators from their office made arrests in connection with the recent Philadelphia Country Club burglary. Burglars had broken into the Country Club and made away with a list of items including: 2-TV’s, 2- sets of irons, several wedges, several fairway woods, golf apparel, sunglasses, and a Cable TV Programming Router.

After interviewing a couple different suspects, officers were led to 11190 County Road 610, Philadelphia MS. This address uncovered several stolen items and clues linking these suspects to a stolen RTV. An officer with Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks joined investigators and helped search for a Kubota side by side that was said to be hidden behind the residence.  The Kubota RTV 900 was located on the property along with several other items of evidence.  Multiple arrests were made at this residence.

Interviews led the officers to 1014 County Road 1723 in the Sandtown Community.  The owner was notified and met officers on the property to verify the theft of his RTV.  When the owner arrived at the residence, he found the RTV was missing, the residence, multiple sheds, and barn were burglarized.  Once Officers were on scene, they returned the Kubota RTV 900 to its owner and documented the burglaries.

Over the course of the next 2 days, Investigators recovered 2 TV’s and a bag that contained the stolen golf clubs from The Philadelphia Country Club.  Neshoba County Sheriff’s Office returned the collected evidence to representatives of the country club.
