Deputies make drug arrests
By SUE WATSON
Marshall County Sheriff’s Department investigators made seven drug-related arrests, two arrests for burglary and completed a sweep for unregistered sex offenders last week, according to sheriff Kenny Dickerson.
In drug-related investigations Friday, Feb. 4, deputies served a search warrant in the 300 block of East Valley Street in Holly Springs, resulting in the arrests of the following suspects:
• Cadaryl House, 24, of the 300 block of East Valley Street, charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell and with conspiracy to sell a controlled substance. House is being held on bond revocation.
• Nicole Bowens, 32, of the 300 block of East Valley Street, charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell.
• Caronia House, 58, of the 300 block of East Valley Street, charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell.
• Kelsey House, 38, of the 300 block of East Valley Street, charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, and with sale of a controlled substance and with conspiracy to sell a controlled substance.
• Willie Wells Jr., 21, of the 4600 block of Tacoma Cove, Olive Branch, charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell.
• Corderial House, 21, of the 500 block of North Water, Boliver, Tenn., charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell.
The investigation resulted in the seizure of approximately five pounds of marijuana, approximately one gram of powder cocaine, and approximately $6,700 in cash, Dickerson said.
Also Friday, in a separate investigation, county narcotics agents arrested Terrance Peoples, 23, of the 600 block of West Street, Holly Springs, he said. Peoples was charged with possession of a controlled substance and with intent to sell a controlled substance, Dickerson said.
Two suspects were arrested and charged with numerous counts of burglary of residences and vehicles in the Byhalia area, the sheriff said.
Arrested Monday, Feb. 14, were Terrance Rayford, 19, and James Shipp, 41, both of the Highway 309 South area near Byhalia, Dickerson said. The suspects are charged with burglaries that took place in the Matthews Corner area.
Dickerson said properties will be returned to their owners once the investigations are completed. Victims of burglary do not need to call the sheriff’s department to ask if their belongings have been recovered, he said. They will be notified when to come in and identify their stolen properties.
Dickerson thanked individuals who report criminal activities or suspicious activities that they either learn about or notice in their communities.
Call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-729-2169 or the sheriff’s office at 662-252-1311 to report any criminal activities or suspicious activities.
Detectives recently completed Operation Clean Sweep in Marshall County, a yearly search of individuals in the county who are on the national sex offender register, the sheriff said.
There are approximately 105 registered sex offenders in Marshall County, including those incarcerated, with about 12 individuals who were found to be out of compliance, he said.
There are strict penalties for failure of sex offenders to report accurate addresses to authorities, the sheriff said. Penalties become stiffer with each failure to report. Offenders are required to report their address every 90 days to authorities at the driver’s license office (Department of Vehicle Registration).
The verification process and correct address is mandatory for life for convicted sex offenders, Dickerson said.
All information was updated on eight of the offenders out of compliance and warrants have been issued for the arrest of four who are not in compliance.
One of those noncompliant fled to Los Vegas and awaits extradition to Marshall County.
“We monitor every sex offender registered,” the sheriff said.
The national registry of sex offenders is on the web at www.sor.state.ms.us.
Dickerson thanked officers with the U.S. Marshals Service, Gulf Coast Regional Task Force in Oxford, for helping serve arrest warrants.
