A multi-agency task force involving federal, state and local law enforcement served a search warrant Wednesday at a barber shop and beauty salon located at the intersection of W. 4th Street and North 25th Avenue in Hattiesburg.

The warrant was served in the early afternoon hours at the Dynasty Hair Salon. Several people were detained and questioned inside the building.

A small amount of marijuana was seized and one person was arrested for misdemeanor possession. The rest of the detainees were released at around 3:30 p.m.
