Yesterday Meridian Police arrested 61 year old Fredrick Brassfield of Meridian and charged him with Felony Shoplifting. This is considered an upgraded charge as Brassfield has prior misdemeanor arrests for shoplifting. His bond was set at $5,000.

Yesterday Meridian Police responded to the insurance office of Percy Bland located on 24th Avenue. Upon arrival they found a hooded baby blanket with the hood resembling a dogs head hanging by a noose from a light fixture outside the front door of the business. The scene was worked and evidence collected. Trace evidence collected from the blanket will be forwarded to the F.B.I. for analysis. The F.B.I. was contacted and are assisting in the investigation. Police are asking the public's help in identifying the owner of the blanket or if they have any information about this hate crime to contact Police or call CrimeStoppers at 601-485-1860.
