From Booneville PD:


On 12/05/2023, patrol officers received a 911 call that was transferred from Alcorn County, MS regarding a possible kidnapping from Booneville. According to the caller, one victim had allegedly been taken against their will from the parking lot of a business off of North Second Street in Booneville.

Detectives of the Criminal Investigation Division were notified.

The suspect was identified as Nicholas Xavier Beauregard, 20 of Walnut, MS.

The victim was located unharmed along with Mr. Beauregard by sheriff’s deputies in Hardeman County, TN. Mr. Beauregard was taken into custody and detained pending investigation. The victim was released, and charges were signed against Mr. Beauregard the same night. A warrant was issued for his arrest on 12/06/2023.

Mr. Beauregard waived extradition from Hardeman County, TN and was transferred to our agency on 12/08/2023.

He was subsequently charged with one felony count of kidnapping. His bond was set at $75,000.00. This case will be presented to the Prentiss County grand jury.

We would like to thank the citizens and officers who assisted in the quick resolution in this case.
