SPD officers, with assistance from the U.S. Marshals Task Force, arrested 49-year-old Lannie Stallings on Friday. Stallings was arrested on suspicion of three counts of commercial burglary, felony taking of a motor vehicle and a residential burglary.  


According to affidavits obtained from Starkville municipal court, on June 11, Stallings committed commercial burglary at a business on Lindbergh Boulevard. That same day, according to court documents, he took a 2004 GMC Yukon from the same location.
