Couple arrested for breaking into business
An Oxford man and woman were arrested on Monday, June 12 for burglary. Andrew Goodwin, 19, and Alexis Wright, 21, reportedly went into Marquis Towing on May 25, and stole money out of the safe. The Marquis owner signed charges against the pair and added that Goodwin had a key to access the building.
