Equipment recovered, drugs seized
By SUE WATSON
Investigators recovered approximately a quarter million dollars worth of large equipment and seized about 16 pounds of marijuana at a residence near Waterford last week, sheriff Kenny Dickerson said.
The investigation was led by the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office with assistance from the Tennessee and Mississippi Auto/Cargo Task Force, and the Tri-County Narcotics Task Force.
One subject was arrested and charged with possession of stolen property and that subject and a second man with a Potts Camp address were charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell, he said.
The stolen items, including a backhoe, a skid steer, numerous ATVs, a tractor, a heavy duty truck, a bushhog, disk, generator, and trailers, were recovered. They belonged to Hardeman, Tippah and Tate counties and to several private individuals from Hardeman County, Tenn., and Ripley, Dickerson said.
Fredrick J. Johnson, 37, of 3487 Old Highway 4 South, was arrested and charged with several counts of possession and receiving stolen property and with possession of marijuana with intent to sell, Dickerson said. Johnson remained in the Marshall County jail Tuesday.
Stephen Roanelle Simon, 23, of 653 Jeffries Road, Potts Camp, was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell and has since been released on $20,000 bond.
The marijuana was seized at the residence and from a vehicle at the residence on Highway 7 South.
