According to Itawamba County Sheriff Chris Dickinson, bags of sugar with notes attached were found this afternoon at the homes of Clara Brown and Tony Wallace, and at the office of Eddie Hood in the Tupelo West Main Shopping Center.
Dickinson said there have yet to be any reports of packages left at the homes of Jackie Nichols and Harold Martin, board members for second and third districts respectively.
“We think it may be some form of threat,” Dickinson said. If captured, the perpetrator or perpetrators will face charges of malicious mischief.
Authorities have not released the contents of the notes left with the bags of sugar, but according to WTVA, Tupelo police have contacted the FBI.
