DRUG ROUND UP IN TISHOMINGO COUNTY

March 9, 2018
by Staff Reports

Over the past couple of weeks, the Tishomingo Sheriff’s Office has arrested several people throughout Tishomingo County stemming from a several months long drug investigation.  The Tishomingo Sheriff’s Office would like to publicly thank the police departments of GoldenBelmontIukaBurnsville and Tishomingo as well as the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics in their combined effort in helping catch all the Suspects.  Sheriff John Daugherty states that “By working together, it makes combating crime a lot easier”.  Sheriff Daugherty also stated that “Curbing the sell of drugs also helps reduce the amount of burglaries, thefts, robberies, and other crimes in our county”.

Sheriff Daugherty would also like to thank those citizens that called and gave tips pertaining to certain drug areas and those that are involved in drug activity.  Without the help from the public it would be a lot harder to combat the selling of narcotics in our community.   The Tishomingo Sheriff’s Office is also currently working with our department Chaplin, to try and get those that have been arrested for the first time for the Possession of Felony Drugs and who also have a drug addiction, into some rehab facilities.  Most of these people involved in drugs are not “bad people”, but rather had made some “bad choices” in life and have to pay the consequences because of those choices.

Sheriff Daugherty finally states that “It’s not about locking people up and throwing away the key”.

The following list are of those individuals who were indicted by a Grand Jury for the sell or conspiring to sell a narcotic(s).
