FROM PRENTISS COUNTY SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT

PRENTISS COUNTY, Miss. — Prentiss County Investigators have been investigating a fire near the intersection of CR 3301 & CR 3280 that was reported Monday afternoon. The fire consumed an old barn near Little Brown Free Will Baptist Church. A person of interest was taken into custody shortly after the fire was discovered. Investigators have since charged 25 year old Dustin Gerald Chapman of 2016 South Second Street Booneville with one count of Arson. His bond has not been set at this time. We appreciate the help of all those involved including State Fire Marshals Office, Witnesses, Fireman and South Half Constable. It took everyone working together to put all the pieces together.
