Several in Calhoun County surrounding area among arrests in MBN statewide roundup

A major cocaine and marijuana trafficking operation was shut down Tuesday with the arrests of several individuals by the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics and the DEA. Working on this drug sting for months, agents executed 20 search warrants and were given consent to search in six instances.

This organization was responsible for transporting and distributing approximately 20 kilograms of cocaine and in excess of 500 pounds of marijuana monthly. Making 24 arrests total in several locations across Mississippi, agents seized cocaine, marijuana, prescription narcotics as well as cash, guns and vehicles.

Charges range from simple possession to conspiracy to distribute cocaine and marijuana to a felon possessing a firearm as well as federal charges.

“Drug Trafficking continues to menace our communities.  This complex investigation was a coordinated effort by MBN, DEA and a coalition of our federal, state and local partners.  Our success in protecting the public is the result of outstanding teamwork,” said MBN Director Marshall Fisher

“The successful dismantling of this organization is yet another example of what can be achieved when agencies at all levels work toward a common goal with no regard as to who gets the accolades,”  Joel K. Reese, Assistant Special Agent in Charge, Drug Enforcement Administration.
