Shadow over officers lets suspects walk

At least 34 people suspected of drug trafficking will not be prosecuted in Jones County, because of the ongoing investigation into alleged questionable activities by the Southeast Mississippi Drug Task Force.

About three dozen narcotics cases have been dismissed in circuit court at the request of prosecutors. Assistant District Attorney J. Ronald Parrish says a number of other cases will not be presented to a grand jury.

Specifics of the alleged wrongdoing have not been made public. State investigators have been collecting evidence from the task force headquarters in Calhoun. Parrish says his office is still waiting on those reports.
