The Tishomingo Sheriff’s Department had been conducting an investigation into a Jose Martinez Capetillo, of Corinth, Mississippi. The investigation stemmed from the alleged possessing and selling of illegal narcotics at a business in Tishomingo County.

The Tishomingo Sheriff’s Department conducted a traffic stop on Jose Martinez Capetillo on Highway 72 in the Burnsville, Mississippi area. As Capetillo vehicle was being pulled over, Capetillo attempted to throw out alleged Methamphetamine as well as Marijuana from the window of his vehicle. Tishomingo Sheriff’s Deputies were able to quickly retrieve the alleged narcotics and detain Capetillo.
