SEARCH WARRANT LEADS TO ARREST OF WHISKEY STILL AND DRUGS

 

 

April 27, 2016

FROM THE TISHOMINGO SHERIFFS DEPARTMENT:

On April 26, 2016 law enforcement officers with the Tishomingo Sheriff’s Department, Mississippi Alcohol & Beverage Control (ABC) and the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics (MBN), issued a SEARCH WARRANT at 386 CR 993 in the southern part of Tishomingo County.

The SEARCH WARRANT yielded several items that are illegal to own/possess in the State of Mississippi. Arrested was PHILIP DAVID STORMENT, white male, approximately 59 years-old, and was detained by the Tishomingo Sheriff’s Department.

The items that were seized were: One (1) Whiskey Still, One (1) Hydroponic Marijuana Lab, approximately 402 grams of Marijuana, along with several jar(s) of alleged illegal whiskey, and several bags of sugar. Several weapons were found in close proximity of the alleged Marijuana as well.  Three (3) 55 gallon barrels of alleged whiskey was destroyed on the property by members of law enforcement.  It is estimated that due to the size of the whiskey still and other precursors items that are attributed to the making of the whiskey, approximately 38 gallons of the alleged whiskey was destroyed/confiscated.

Sheriff Daugherty stated that he is very pleased with the excellent cooperation that his department has received since taken office. Sheriff Daugherty states “We in law enforcement can accomplish more by working together than apart.  I am extremely grateful to every agency, whether it has been local, state, or federal, that has come in and assisted us in making Tishomingo County a safe place to live.”

PHILIP DAVID STORMENT is still incarcerated at the Tishomingo County Jail. Charges in relation to these seized items will be released later today as well as the bond amount.  We will update everyone at that time.
