According to a source, the pilot who allegedly threatened to crash the stolen plane into a Walmart in Tupelo is now in police custody.

When the pilot called 911 and issued the threat at 5 a.m. local time, Tupelo police were alerted.

When the jet made an emergency landing many miles away from Ripley Airport, the pilot was the only one inside.

The Walmart in Tupelo has been evacuated and is currently closed.

A video that has been circulated shows the pilot and small plane in a field, mostly undamaged.

Police are forwarding inquiries to law enforcement and collaborating closely with local investigators.

According to a spokeswoman, the FBI field office in Jackson, Mississippi, took part in the incident response.
