Drug arrests made in Chickasaw County
HOUSTON – The Chickasaw County Sheriff’s Department and North Mississippi Narcotics Unit are constantly fighting the battle against illegal drugs in the county and sometimes receive tips from the most unlikely sources.
On Jan. 9, CSO and NMNU agents made a traffic stop on Jimmy Putt in Old Houlka, after Putt allegedly called Coroner Andy Harmon by mistake to set up a sale.
Harmon agreed to the sale and set up the meeting at which the agents made the stop and found 50 dosage units of Hydrocodone and several firearms in Putt’s possession. Putt, 67, of Calhoun County, was arrested for possession with intent to sell and Justice Court Judge Garry Turner set his bond at $20,000.
Since the first of the year, the CSO and NMNU have been busy with several arrests made.
• On Jan. 3 at traffic stop on Church Street resulted in the arrest of Gregory Brownlee, 40, and the recovery of marijuana, scales and baggies. A search of Brownlee’s home revealed seven ounces of marijuana, baggies and firearms. Brownlee was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell and bond was set at $25,000.
• On Jan. 8, CSO and NMNU agents, along with Houston police officers and Natchez Trace Parkway Rangers arrested Demaris Washington, 38, at his home. He was charged with sale of crack cocaine and bond was set at $20,000.
• On Jan. 11, a traffic stop by CSO agent, Lee Womack and K-9 partner, Max, resulted in the arrest of Zachary Brownlee of Calhoun County. Recovered were marijuana, scales and baggies. Brownlee, 26, was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell and bond was set at $20,000.
• On Jan. 11, CSO, NMNU agent Michael Fowler and Mississippi Highway Patrol officers arrested Sherry Lackey of Aberdeen and recovered one bottle of Promethazine. Lackey was charged with possession of Promethazine with intent to sell and bond was set at $20,000.
