Bishop Martin, 22, of Highway 356, is charged with burglary, felony evading and misdemeanor shoplifting.
Sheriff Ben Caldwell said his department responded to a call of possible shoplifting at Dollar General in Biggersville around 10 a.m., and a pursuit followed. One of the two suspects matched the description of an individual the department was looking for in connection with a residential burglary that occurred in Farmington Thursday evening on County Road 119.
Constable Wayne Duncan spotted the vehicle after it left the Biggersville store and attempted to make a traffic stop. The vehicle fled south on Highway 45 and turned west onto Prentiss County Road 8200.
Caldwell said the vehicle went into a ditch, and the two suspects fled the vehicle on foot. They were found hiding in the woods a short distance from the vehicle.
The second subject was not charged and was released.
The sheriff thanked Duncan, Prentiss deputies and the Mississippi Highway Patrol for assisting in the response.
