TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Tupelo police arrested and charged Martin Alcala for burglary and the theft of approximately $15,000 worth of goods.
On Friday, July 9, 2021, Tupelo police detectives arrested 35-year-old Martin Candelario Alcala of Walls, Mississippi for burglary of a commercial building.
The initial incident happened on July 7, 2021. On that day, Alcala stole approximately $15,000 dollars in tools and equipment from a construction site on Parkgate Extended. The investigation into that theft led officers to arrest Alcala just two days later.
A judge at the Tupelo Municipal Court set Alcala's bond at $150,000 for one count of burglary of a commercial building. Because the investigation is still ongoing, other charges are pending.
