From Prentiss County Sheriff's Department
On Thursday, July 19, a burglary was reported at a residence on County Road 6071 in Prentiss County.

Deputies and investigators responded to the scene and began
working in the case.  Investigators developed leads that led them to a
suspect, who was taken in to custody around noon yesterday.

Investigators eventually wrapped up the case by recovering most of the
stolen property and charging 22-year-old Tyler James Montgomery of Baldwyn with burglary and larceny.

His bond was set at $10,000.  He remains in custody.

The items taken in the burglary consisted of a laptop computer and a large flat panel television.

"I encourage neighbors to watch out for their fellow neighbors and
either report or note suspicious activity such as vehicle description,
tag numbers, direction of travel and any suspect identifiers,": Sheriff Randy Tolar said. "It helps us tremendously to have extra eyes and ears in our communities and in this case a prime example of how it works. The deputies and Investigators did an outstanding job in this
case and wrapped it all up in a day's time."
