Tupelo Man Charged with Embezzlement

 

A Lee County man has been charged with felony embezzlement after taking money and not fixing a Prentiss County pool.

According to Prentiss County Sheriff Randy Tolar, a homeowner paid Jessie Lee Eaton, 63, of Tupelo, $8,800 as part of an agreement where Eaton would not only fix the victim's pool but also service it for the season. Eaton reportedly did neither.

He was arrested Sunday, Sept. 17 with the assistance of the Tupelo Police Department and transported to the Prentiss County Jail.

Judge Richard Tollison set Jessie Lee Eaton's bond at $15,000

Investigator Torie Jumper is working the case and will present the case to the next Grand Jury in Oct.
