Tupelo man charged with armed robbery, kidnapping.

TUPELO – A Tupelo man was arrested Sunday by the Tupelo Police Department and then charged Monday with kidnapping and armed robbery.

Victor L. Shannon, 33, of Tupelo, was arrested after police received a report about two weeks ago from a Tupelo citizen alleging Shannon robbed them at knife point.

Tupelo Police Lt. Jerry Davis said the citizen was uninjured.

Shannon’s bond was set at $50,000 in the Lee County Justice Court.

The Mississippi Department of Corrections has a hold on Shannon, who was on probation for previous charges, meaning he must remain in jail even if he can pay his bond.

He is currently in the Lee County Adult Jail.
