Sheriff Greg Pollan said he received a call from a woman Thursday afternoon saying she had received several text messages from an unknown number offering to sell her drugs.

Utilizing the woman’s phone, the sheriff’s department set up a drug buy with the “seller” near Wayne’s One Stop in Calhoun City.

Pollan said they borrowed a car to use for the meeting and he, three deputies and a Calhoun City policeman hid near the meeting place.

“When the seller approached the deputy in the

Arrested were Danielle Gray, 23, of Bruce; Ira Holmes, 30, of Houston; and Talkela Moore, 27, of Houston.

They’re all charged with conspiracy to sell and child endangerment. There was a four-month old child in the back seat of their vehicle.

Pollan said “the charges will be enhanced” because they also confiscated a 9mm pistol from the car.
