Chase Leads to Felony Arrests in Neshoba


Two Walnut Grove men are facing felony charges in Neshoba County after a 17-mile chase which began west of Philadelphia and ended just across the Leake County line.  Travon Thornsberry and Matthew Whitacre were arrested after crashing their vehicle in a ditch.  It happened during a sheriff’s department saturation detail on Tuesday involving Neshoba County deputies, state troopers and Alcoholic Beverage Control agents.  They issued a total of 59 citations and served 11 warrants.  The sheriff’s department says the public can expect more of these enforcement details during the summer in an effort to keep the roadways safer.
