MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Former Oxford mayoral candidate Brandon Pettis was arrested Sept. 3.

Oxford police reportedly were dispatched to Marquis Chevron and the Marathon Gas Station, both on South Lamar Boulevard, for reports of theft of money.

Officers say an employee at both locations was not working, entered the businesses and took roughly $2,800 from the location.

Police identified 19-year-old Brandon Pettis as a suspect and, after receiving a search warrant, found the missing money.

Pettis is charged with grand larceny and was issued a $15,000 bond.

Oxford police say this is still an ongoing investigation.
