LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - A press conference took place Thursday at the Jones County Sheriff's Department to award Deputy Sheriff Lieutenant, Scott Paxson, with a special certificate from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

When asked if there was anymore illegal passport activity since the bust in July, Jones County Sheriff, Alex Hodge, said "we don't know of anything currently going on, but of course we continually work with Immigration Customs Enforcement. Our investigators continue to look for those uh, possibilities that there could be other out there making Ids, and it won't be tolerated. We will not tolerate that type of activity in Jones County."
