JOINT INVESTIGATION LEADS TO BUSINESS CLOSERS

JOINT INVESTIGATION LEADS TO BUSINESS CLOSERS


 

February 2, 2021

On February 2, 2021, the Tishomingo County Sheriff's Office along with the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics, Iuka Police Department, Belmont Police Department, and the Golden Police Department, executed Search Warrants on convenience stores: Handy Sandy (Iuka), Marathon Gas Station (Iuka), and the Golden Mini-Mart (Golden). 

During the execution of said warrants, two owners were officially charged with the FELONY SALE OF A CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE.  Those owners and their stores are as followed:

  1.        Omar Naji Quhshi - Marathon Gas Station - Iuka
  2.        Wadee Fadel - Handy Sandy - Iuka 

At this time, all three businesses are closed due to the execution of said warrants and the ongoing investigation into crimes from said business.

 

Sheriff John Daugherty states that "We will not tolerate any illegal activity in this county, whether it be from a business or from someone on the street.  We will exercise every available tool that we have to make sure that our citizens are safe.  I am proud of the work that has been conducted and the hours spent investigating into the arrests.  We are thankful to have such a close relationship with the MBN, Iuka PD, Belmont PD and Golden PD to help us and them in stopping this."

 

Currently, this is an ongoing investigation into these business as well as other individuals that may be involved in criminal activity.  Also, more arrests are pending into this matter as this agency conducts this investigation along with state and local law enforcement. 

More information into these arrests will be provided at a later date and time.
