Suspects involved in two cases

Narcotics investigators with the Pearl River County Sheriff’s Department came into contact with the same suspects while responding to two separate cases on two separate days.
The first call came in on Jan. 30, from a resident alleging that drug activity was ongoing at a home in the Dove Ridge subdivision, said Sheriff David Alison.
As the officers arrived at the home, they saw two suspects, later identified as 36-year-old Ronald “Chris” Dressner of 27 Ceicel Smith Road and 22-year-old Brooklyn Holloway of 24 Hayes Lane, flee through the backyard into a wooded area, Allison said.
After the suspects eluded capture the officers returned to the home to speak to the resident. While speaking with that person, officers could hear movement in the woods. Allison said when the officers investigated the source of the noise they found Dressner hiding under a nearby fallen tree, leading him to be taken into custody for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest by fleeing.
A warrant for Holloway on the same charges was issued after she eluded capture that day, but a subsequent call on Feb. 3, allowed them to serve that warrant.
Allison said the detectives received a tip that drug activity was ongoing at a local business in Carriere on that day. Detectives arrived to find Holloway exiting a dark colored truck before walking across the parking lot.
As the detectives exited their vehicle to confront her, the officers observed her throw a plastic bag suspected to contain methamphetamine from her possession before fleeing on foot. The bag was later recovered.
Some of the detectives gave chase while the others secured the occupants of the vehicle. Allison said the detectives found 43-year-old Sandra Tebo of 60 Lakeview Drive and Dressner in the truck, who were later arrested after a search of the vehicle found a second bag containing suspected methamphetamine.
Initial investigation into the case alleges that all three suspects were at the local business with the intent of selling the controlled substance to another individual, Allison said, leading all three to be charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute and conspiracy to transfer a controlled substance.
Holloway was additionally charged with tampering with evidence and disorderly conduct in her attempt to discard the bag of suspected meth and for attempting to flee on foot, Allison said. She was also charged with the previous warrants of resisting arrest by fleeing and disorderly conduct for her actions on Jan. 30 in Dove Ridge.
Allison said Dressner was out on felony bond when he was arrested on Feb. 3, leading to that bond being revoked. Additionally, the Mississippi Department of Corrections placed a hold on him for probation violation, Allison said.
The sheriff would like to express his appreciation to local MDOC officers for all they do for the Sheriff’s Department.
