On November 4, 2017, deputies for the Tishomingo Sheriff’s Office were patrolling the Town of Paden and noticed an individual, that had a CAPIAS WARRANT, in the local park. Deputies immediately placed the individual under arrest and during a SEARCH-INCIDENT-TO-ARREST, two (2) bags of alleged METHAMPHETAMINE was found in the clothes of the individual. Deputies immediately transported the individual to the Tishomingo County Jail.
