A Corinth man is sought by police in connection with more than $10,000 in stolen property that was the subject of search warrants executed this month on two Cruise Street residences, according to a law enforcement official.

The suspect, David Dewayne Holloway, 35, is believed to still be in the local area, said Corinth Police Department Capt. Dell Green. Holloway is described as 5 feet, 10 inches tall and about 135 pounds. Those with information on Holloway’s whereabouts are asked to please call Corinth Police at (662) 286-3377.

He is wanted in relation to an alleged grand larceny from a U.S. Highway 72 East business and a burglary of an unoccupied Proper Street house used for storage, Green said.

One suspect, Anthony Wayne Peters, 56, was arrested days after the warrant was executed. Peters is only a suspect in the burglary, not the grand larceny from the business.

The Corinth Police Department and Alcorn County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant at two residences across the street from one another in the 1400 block of Cruise Street on Oct. 9.

No one was at either residence when the search warrants were executed, but law enforcement did recover the majority of the items stolen in the grand larceny and burglary, said Green.

The grand larceny involved the theft of an enclosed trailer from a business on Oct. 2. The trailer contained merchandise and other equipment, Green said.

Corinth Police developed information that the stolen property was being stored at the Cruise Street residences, and a search warrant was obtained by Alcorn County Justice Court Judge Jimmy McGee.

The trailer was found concealed behind one of the residences, and other stolen property was found inside the two dwellings, Green added.
