The Prentiss County Sheriff’s Department reports several felony arrests in recent weeks.

Among those arrested, all in separate, unrelated cases, are:

Noel Henry Wilson Jr, 51, of Booneville charged with burglary of a commercial building and possession of burglary tools. He is being held without bond due to having been released on a previous felony bond. Donald Richey Hatfiled, 54, of Booneville, was charged with burglary of a commercial building. Bond was set by Justice Court Judge Kimi Kitchens at $20,000 and a hold was placed on him by the Corinth Police Department.

Mark Anthony Mathis, 48, of Corinth, charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Bond was set by Judge Moore at $10,000 and a hold was placed on him by the Mississippi Department of Corrections due to him being under their supervision at the time of the arrest.
