MARION COUNTY, Miss - On Feb 16 the Marion County Narcotics Task Force executed a search warrant at 249 Miller Road in Marion County.

 

Multiple agencies were involved, including the Marion County Narcotics Task Force, Marion County Sheriff's Office, Jeff Davis Sheriff's Office, Mississippi Highway Patrol (SWAT, MBI, and Patrol), Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics, Judicial District Attorney's Office, and the United States Marshal's Fugitive Task Force.

 

Officials yielded distribution amounts of methamphetamines and marijuana and found high-powered weapons. Also with the search they found two ballistic body armors.

 

Sheriff Berkely Hall of Marion County says, "We have been running surveillance on this place, we had confirmed information that mostly everybody there at that house was always armed. We approached this thing with a high risk search warrant because we wanted everyone to go home, and go home safe."

 

There were a total of 8 people arrested, one of the fugitives from Jeff Davis County, Henry Jovon Brown, 23, was wanted for 3 counts of attempted murder.

 

"They were selling drugs all over South Mississppi not just Marion County. It was a good lead. They said they were big players. I do not know how big they were, but you can see from the amount of drugs that we got and the assault weapons. They were ready to protect themselves if need be" says Sheriff Hall.

 

The initial hearings are set for this week and the investigation is still ongoing.
