Narcotics Detectives with the Pearl River County Sheriff’s Department arrested two suspects in relation to evidence found in two separate cases.
The first case involved several months of investigation into the alleged illegal activities of 54-year-old James Terry Henry, said Sheriff David Allison.
During that investigation, detectives were able to make a controlled buy of alleged controlled substances from Henry at his home located at 227 Whitesand Road, Poplarville, after which they secured a search warrant, Allison said.
During that search, conducted on Sept. 28, the detectives found substances believed to be marijuana and methamphetamine, along with bowie knives and a 410 shotgun, Allison said. Henry’s status as a convicted felon precluded his ownership of those weapons, the sheriff said.
Since Henry was not home at the time of the search, a warrant was issued for his arrest based on the evidence. Allison said that Henry was later arrested on Oct. 3. During his arrest deputies discovered he had other contempt of court warrants out for his arrest. He was taken into custody for all nine warrants, including possession of marijuana, possession of a controlled substance, DUI, no driver’s license, improper turn, conspiracy to sell a controlled substance, sale of a controlled substance and four counts of possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, the sheriff said.
The previous warrants were issued when he failed to show up for court for the previous offenses, Allison said.
In a separate case that took place on Sept. 29, 49-year-old James Davis of 166 Huppo Road was taken into custody for an outstanding warrant for disorderly conduct, Allison said.
While being taken into custody for the warrant, the deputies found Suboxone and clonazepam in his possession, leading Davis to be additionally charged with felony possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute for the Suboxone and misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance for the clonazepam, Allison said.
