Firm fined for call solicitations
Team Tech Solutions has agreed to pay $3,000 for alleged violations of Mississippi's No Call Law, according to Public Service Commissioner Brandon Presley.
Presley said the settlement is for costs associated with investigating complaints of unauthorized telephone solicitations. He said Team Tech was not registered with the PSC, as required.
Consumers who want to be on the state's No Call phone list can register at the PSC's website, psc.state.ms.us, or by phone at 800-356-6428.
Charges filed in Mississippi bank holdups
An Alabama man will be arraigned Friday in federal court in Oxford on charges related to robberies of four North Mississippi banks.
U.S. Magistrate David A. Sanders will hold a detention hearing the same day.
Federal prosecutors say 35-year-old Brian Perry Jones of Toney, Ala., made an initial appearance in court Tuesday.
An indictment accuses Jones of robbing two banks in Tupelo and one each in Booneville and Iuka from August to November of 2012.
Jones was arrested in Tishomingo County following the last robbery. He is currently in the custody of U.S. Marshals.
