Wanted fugitive from Corinth arrested after trespassing call made

Two wanted men were recently arrested after a trespassing call was made to the Tishomingo County Sheriffs Department, including one man from Corinth.

From the TCSD:

On December 27, 2019, Tishomingo County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a business in the Burnsville community who was trespassing on their property.  When the deputies arrived, they confronted a female along with two males. 

Deputies checked all three individuals and learned that one of the males was WANTED by the Mississippi Department of Corrections (MDOC).  That individual, RICKIE HUGULEY, was immediately detained by the deputies.  The other individual, CHARLES KELLER, SR., originally gave the deputies a false name but later informed the deputies of this and gave the deputies his correct name.  It was then learned that this individual was currently on probation in the state of Tennessee for other FELONY crimes and had just recently been charged with and ARMED ROBBERY while on probation. 

KELLER was also detained for providing false information to the deputies and both individuals were transported to the Tishomingo County Jail.  The female was released.  Once at the jail, KELLER turned over to corrections officers a tube which allegedly contained METHAMPHETAMINE that was hidden inside his pants.  Additional charges were then added to KELLER.

CHARLES KELLER, SR., 45-year-old, white male of 140 Tee Tom Drive Salsbury, Tennessee was officially charged with FELONY POSSESSION OF CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE (METHAMPHETAMINE).  KELLER’s bond was set by the Tishomingo County Justice Court at $5,000.

RICKIE HUGULEY, 40-year-old, white male of 13 CR 685 Corinth, Mississippi was officially served with an outstanding ARREST WARRANT by the Mississippi Department of Corrections (MDOC), as a WANTED FUGITIVE.  HUGULEY is currently in custody at the Tishomingo County Jail.
