Bond set at $500,000 for Lee County armed robbery

By NEMS Daily Journal

A Guntown man has been arrested and arraigned for aggravated assault and armed robbery.
The bond for Anthony Dixon Jr., 22, of Tupelo, was set at $500,000 Friday after his Thursday arrest.
Dixon allegedly knocked a man out and left him unconscious on the side of County Road 1213 after the man stopped to give Dixon a ride.
Justice Court Judge John Sheffield said he set the bond high due to previous violent charges on Dixon’s record.
