MSUPD seeking three men in burglary case


‘Persons of interest’ caught
on surveillance in athletic facility
By Alex Holloway
aholloway@cdispatch.com

Mississippi State University Po-


lice Department is searching for
three “persons of interest” who
were seen in an athletic building
early Wednesday morning.
On Wednesday afternoon, the
department posted two images
from surveillance footage on Twit-
ter. The stills show three black men Rice
Mississippi State hoodies and athletic pants in a
hallway. Two of the men have backpacks, includ-
ing one maroon Adidas backpack with what ap-
pears to be an Outback Bowl tag.
MSU Police Chief Vance Rice said the men
were seen just after midnight on Wednesday
in the building. Rice declined to identify which
building they were seen in, specifically, but not-
ed it was an athletic building. He said the depart-
ment has a burglary report in conjunction with
the footage, but declined to offer further details.
Rice said MSUPD has received some names of
possible suspects and will work to make contact
with them. He said some people have suggested
that one of the suspects may be a football player
— Mississippi State played in the Outback Bowl
in January — but the department does not cur-
rently believe that to be the case and the bag may
have been stolen. Courtesy photo
