A domestic dispute in Lafayette County led to the arrest of two individuals and the confiscation of several ounces of methamphetamine.

On Dec. 26, the Lafayette County Sheriff’s Office responded to a domestic disturbance in progress on County Road 469. Upon arrival and after the investigation, deputies arrested Bobby Griffin, 30 of Oxford, for aggravated domestic violence and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
