Starkville Daily News - - NEWS - By FAITH LIFER news@starkvilledai­lynews.com

Leevester El­lis, 48, was ar­rested on Creek­line Road for a charge of res­i­den­tial bur­glary on the af­ter­noon of July 11.

El­lis' ar­rest comes days af­ter a separate bur­glary on June 29. In June, El­lis' bond was set to $5,000 and he was re­leased on bond on the same day.

Ok­tibbeha County Cir­cuit Court records show El­lis was also charged with res­i­den­tial bur­glary in Fe­bru­ary 1998.

Ok­tibbeha County Sher­iff's Of­fice In­ves­ti­ga­tor Lt. Brett Wat­son said a Starkville res­i­dent no­ti­fied au­thor­i­ties that an in­truder was in the res­i­dent's home on July 11. When the au­thor­i­ties ar­rived, they found El­lis in the home.

El­lis' ini­tial ap­pear­ance was on July 13, and Judge Charles “Marty” Haug set his bond at $150,000. El­lis is cur­rently be­ing held in the Ok­tibbeha County Jail.
