Staff reports

A Corinth man on Thursday allegedly fled law enforcement in a vehicle the day after methamphetamine, marijuana and steroids were found at his home, according to Alcorn County Sheriff Ben Caldwell.

The suspect, Lee Price Boggs, 29, of 25 County Road 521, Corinth, was taken into custody after the pursuit ended on U.S. Highway 72 in Tishomingo County in the Burnsville area.

At the time of the traffic stop, Boggs was allegedly in possession of methamphetamine, which was enhanced due to the possession of a firearm, a sheriff’s office news release said.

The sheriff’s office had executed a search warrant at Boggs’ home as part of an ongoing investigation the day before the pursuit, the release added. Meth, marijuana and steroids were allegedly found during the search at the home.

An arrest warrant was issued for Boggs Thursday, and Alcorn County Deputy Robert Loyd met a vehicle on County Road 300 matching the description of Boggs’ truck. Deputy Loyd turned around to follow the truck, which then led to the pursuit that ended in Tishomingo County with the help of the Burnsville Police Department, the release said.

Boggs was taken to the Alcorn County Jail and held without bond because he had been out on a previous felony bond.

In a separate case . . .

The Alcorn County Sheriff’s Office on Monday arrested a Guys, Tenn. man, who was charged with felony possession of approximately 8 grams of meth, according to Sheriff Caldwell.

Alcorn County Deputy Tim Boggs arrested the suspect, John Zachary Callins, 45, on U.S. Highway 72 West in Corinth during a traffic stop investigation.

Callins was transported to the Alcorn County Jail and held on a $10,000 bond.
