On October 28, 2016, Tishomingo Sheriff’s Department conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle on HWY 25 in the Tishomingo area for reckless driving.

The search yielded some alleged METHAMPHETAMINE being found in a pocket on the passenger as well as alleged METHAMPHETAMINE was found in a hidden compartment of the vehicle. More paraphernalia was found throughout the vehicle. Both the driver and the passenger was then arrested and transported to the Tishomingo County Jail.
