GRENADA, Miss. (WTVA) - A Grenada County grand jury has indicted Grenada Councilman Joshua Hughes.

The Grenada Star reports Hughes was arrested Wednesday morning after the grand jury handed up the four-count indictment —conspiracy to commit a crime, wire fraud and two counts of insurance fraud.

The newspaper says the indictment of Hughes and another man, Bobby Barnes of Grenada, has to do with a false insurance claim with Allstate on a reported stolen vehicle.
