Sunday around 11 p.m. Warren County Sheriff’s Deputy Dustin Keyes spotted Grady Bishop on U.S. Highway 80.
Keyes knew Bishop was wanted on a misdemeanor warrant for false pretense. When Keyes attempted to stop the vehicle, Bishop fled into the Apple Orchard Subdivision, where he was soon subdued. Deputies recovered a 12-gauge shotgun that had been reported as stolen during their investigation.
Bishop has been charged with residential burglary and possession of a firearm by a felon along with the misdemeanor charge of false pretense. Additionally, the Mississippi Department of Corrections has placed a detainer on Bishop for a parole violation.
Bishop will be arraigned at some point Tuesday; however, he is not be eligible for bond because of the MDOT detainer.
Sheriff Martin Pace declined to say if there are other suspects in the burglary case, saying only that the investigation is ongoing.
