Agencies serve warrants
By SUE WATSON
About 40 individuals indicted by the Marshall County circuit court grand jury were served arrest warrants last week, according to sheriff Kenny Dickerson.
Six law enforcement agencies participated in the roundup which began about 4:30 a.m. Wednesday and continued into Thursday, he said. Warrants were served over the county and in Holly Springs.
Many of the indictments were for drug-related charges while others were on charges of burglary, grand larceny, bad checks or assault, the sheriff said.
Search warrants were served on several residences and four pounds of marijuana were seized as well as about $5,000 in cash. Five automobiles were seized as well as four guns believed to have been stolen.
“Many of those arrested were arraigned in circuit court Thursday and most have made bond or their bonds are being set pending circuit court proceedings,” Dickerson said.
“These arrests will add to an already crowded criminal court docket.”
Circuit court will convene for two weeks beginning in late August at which time many of the criminal cases on the docket will be disposed of, according to Dickerson.
He praised efforts and hard work of his officers and those of the Tri-County Narcotics Task Force (Marshall, Benton, Tippah counties), the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics, the Mississippi Highway Patrol, the Mississippi Department of Corrections, the U.S. Marshals and the ABC (Alcohol and Beverage Commission).
“We will continue to target those responsible for the sale of illegal drugs to citizens of our county and particularly the youth of our county,” Dickerson said.
“We praise the work of all officers from beginning to end as we continue our tireless efforts in taking those who sell illegal drugs off the streets of Marshall County.”
