LOCAL MAN ARRESTED IN TEXAS

 

October 31, 2017

On October 31, 2017, Tishomingo County Sheriff’s Office officials received confirmation that a Suspect that was entered as WANTED was arrested in the State of Texas.

ROY STEVEN ROBERTS, 61-year-old, white male, who previously lived at 67 Dickinson Road Golden, Mississippi, was INDICTED by a Tishomingo County Grand Jury in September of this year for COUNT #1: FONDLING and COUNT #2: SEXUAL BATTERY.

The Tishomingo Sheriff’s Office began their investigation into the case around May 2017 after the Victim(s) informed local law enforcement agencies of the allegations.  Tishomingo Sheriff’s investigators as well as Child Protective Services (CPS) began working together and were able to find enough evidence to bring to a Grand Jury.  Prior to the Grand Jury’s inquire, ROBERTS and his wife moved from Golden to somewhere in Texas.

Tishomingo Sheriff’s Office contacted the United States Marshals Service as soon as the INDICTMENT was published and requested their assistance in locating ROBERTS.    Today, ROBERTS was stopped on a traffic stop in the Athens, Texas area and was transported to the local jail.  Tishomingo Sheriff’s Office officials will go and bring ROBERTS back to Mississippi once the extradition is made official.
