Oxford Police arrest five in connection to string of auto burglaries

Five people are facing multiple charges in connection to a string of auto burglaries reported on Old Taylor Road.

From March 26 to March 30, several residents on Old Taylor Road contacted the Oxford Police Department to report their vehicles had been burglarized, which led OPD to investigate the incidents.

On April 3, investigators executed a search warrant on an apartment off of Old Taylor Road, where they were able to recover several stolen items and arrested two individuals who were involved in the burglaries. Those individuals were identified as Ledarius Davis, 21 of Oxford, and Rashod Sharp, 21 of Oxford.

After the initial arrests of Davis and Sharp, OPD learned new information that led to additional arrest warrants being issued for three more individuals. Those individuals were identified as Dalton Patterson, 18 of Oxford, Brooklyn Savage, 19 of Oxford and Brandon Potts, 18 of Oxford. All three were located and arrested on the same day without incident, according to OPD.

Davis was charged with one count of auto burglary and two counts of conspiracy to commit auto burglary. Sharp was charged with two counts of auto burglary and one count of conspiracy to commit auto burglary. Patterson was charged with one count of auto burglary and two counts of conspiracy to commit auto burglary. Savage was charged with one count of conspiracy to commit auto burglary. Potts was charged with one count of auto burglary and one count of conspiracy to commit auto burglary.

Bonds were set by a Justice Court Judge. Davis, Sharp and Patterson were issued $15,000 bonds. Potts was issued a $10,000 bond and Savage was issued a $5,000 bond.

The investigation is still ongoing, according to OPD, and more arrests could be made as a result. Anyone with information regarding the individuals arrested or others that may be involved are asked to contact OPD at 662-232-2400.
