Oxford man charged with burglary, stolen property

The Oxford Police Department arrested an Oxford man for allegedly breaking into a house that was occupied at the time by three females.

According to OPD, on Monday, officers responded to a house burglary that had just occurred. When officers arrived, they spoke with three females who stated they were home when a male broke in and started going through the house. Two of the victims hid in a closet while the other remained asleep. The suspect woke the sleeping victim and she was able to give a description of the male.

Officers then began searching for the suspect, which lead them to a house in the county. They were able to identify Charles Nalley, 25, and confirmed it through the victims.

Nalley was also in possession of electronics, guns and other items stolen during previous thefts.

Nalley was taken to the Lafayette County Detention Center where he was booked and then taken before a judge for his initial court appearance where his bond was set at $20,000.
