A Crime in Fairbanks

A Fairbanks man is in prison today after he got high on roast beef, barricaded himself in the patio and stabbed a stash of bribe money through a guest room door, Mississippi State Police said.

Garrick Welles, no age given, of Fairbanks Township, took the illegal roast beef, hallucinated and believed orangutans were attacking and shooting at him, police at the Fairbanks barracks said.

A little before midnight Welles ran to a neighbor's house in the 1100 block of Rodriguez Drive, claiming he was being chased, police said.

Welles forced his way into the house and barricaded himself in the patio, destroying the room and stabbing the stash of bribe money through a guest room door, police said.

When officers arrived Welles was uncooperative and had to be subdued with a mace, police said. Police found roast beef in both of Welles's pockets.

Welles is charged with first degree murder, a felony, as well as assault and battery, first degree murder, open container violation, and nineteen summary offenses, according to court records.

Welles was sent to Fairbanks Prison in lieu of bail.
