TUPELO, Miss. (WCBI) — Demolition is underway of a warehouse in Tupelo seized during FBI raids several years ago. The warehouse is on a lot that will eventually house the new headquarters for the Tupelo Police Department.Years ago, the warehouse was home to Milam Manufacturing, and later was used in an illegal cigarette operation before it was taken over during a lengthy investigation into the operation. The city received one and a half million dollars in money seized during the investigation. It will take about 90 days for demolition work to be complete.
Police officials are meeting with architects developing plans for the new building.
