RICHLAND, Miss. (WJTV) — A man is in custody after leading law enforcement officers on a high-speed chase in a stolen vehicle.

According to the Richland Police Department, they assisted the Simpson County Sheriff’s Office to arrest Joseph Zattoni.

Authorities charged Zattoni with receiving stolen property and felony fleeing. He led officers on a chase through several jurisdictions, officials said.

Investigators learned that Zattoni is possibly involved in counterfeiting money and identity theft.

Zattoni was booked in the Rankin County Jail. Officials said he was denied bond because he was out of jail on two other felony bonds through Hinds and Rankin County when this crime was committed.

The investigation into Zattoni’s criminal activity is ongoing.

Authorities are also asking anyone that has fallen victim to Zattoni’s criminal activity to contact them.

The Rankin County Sheriff’s Office also assisted in this investigation.
