2 ARRESTED FOR DRUGS

 

March 1, 2021

On February 22, 2021, Tishomingo County Sheriff's deputies conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle on HWY 365, due to erratic driving.  During the traffic stop, deputies observed some drug paraphernalia inside the vehicle as well as a strong odor of narcotics coming from inside said vehicle.  At this time, deputies placed both the drive and passenger under arrest for the paraphernalia and a search of the vehicle yielded a large amount of alleged Methamphetamine, a large amount of alleged Marijuana, Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, and various other prescribed prescription pills in two separate bags inside the vehicle.

Deputies also found evidence that the occupants of the vehicle were selling narcotics due to baggies being found inside the vehicle as well.  Both the driver and passenger were then transported to the Tishomingo County Jail where they were both officially charged, and an investigation was conducted into the alleged narcotics that were found and the occupants of the vehicle.

(1)   MARCUS KYLE DAWSON, 31-year-old, white male, of 2060 Fulton Road Iuka, Mississippi was officially charged with: FELONY POSSESSION OF CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE (METHAMPHETAMINE) W/INTENT TO SELL; FELONY POSSESSION OF CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE (MARIJUANA) W/INTENT TO SELL; FELONY POSSESSION OF CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE (HYDROCODONE); FELONY POSSESSION OF CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE (OXYCODONE).

Bond was set by Tishomingo County Justice Court Judge, Seth Adams, in the amount of $20,000 for the above listed charges.

(2)   CHIREL RIPPIE, 43-year-old, white female, of 2060 Fulton Road Iuka, Mississippi was officially charged with: FELONY POSSESSION OF CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE (METHAMPHETAMINE) W/INTENT TO SELL; FELONY POSSESSION OF CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE (MARIJUANA) W/INTENT TO SELL; FELONY POSSESSION OF CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE (HYDROCODONE); FELONY POSSESSION OF CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE (OXYCODONE).

Bond was also set by Tishomingo County Justice Court Judge, Seth Adams, in the amount of $20,000 for the above listed charges.
