Jones County raid puts dozens behind bars

JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

More than two dozen people are behind bars after a three day raid in Jones County. Jones County Sheriff Alex Hodge said his department is doing everything possible to rid the streets of drugs and gangs. He said the increased gang activity has led to an increase in crime.

Hodge said over the weekend, 27 people were arrested on drug charges and on circuit court bench warrants. He said in most cases crime increases during the summer but his office is hoping to combat the violence before it gets out of hand.

Authorities said they are still looking for Anthony Kirk and Kendrick Page. If you know the whereabouts of these two individuals please contact the Jones County Sheriff Department at (601)425-3147.
