A Neshoba County man was recently indicted on four counts of burglary of a storage shed after a string of previous convictions.

The indictment was one of 33 handed down by a Neshoba County grand jury during its December term.

Marcus Smith, 26 of Road 325 in Union, was indicted on four counts of burglary of a storage shed in connection with a string of robberies in July. 

At the time of the arrest in July, Neshoba County Sheriff Tommy Waddell said Smith burglarized a shed in the Hope community and stole power tools. He also said Smith was responsible for a home burglary in Tucker where he allegedly stole tools and an air conditioning unit as well as a burglary in the Linwood community where he removed household items and clothing from the home.

Upon arrest, Smith was denied bond. 

Smith has been deemed as a habitual offender because of a series of convictions.

In 2015, Smith was convicted of burglarizing a church and was sentenced to a six-year term. 

In 2010, Smith was convicted of burglarizing a dwelling and was sentenced to a five-year term. 

Upon being indicted, Smith was given a bond of $50,000.
