LPD makes major heroin bust

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -

Three suspects are in custody awaiting their first appearances in court in connection with a major heroin bust in Laurel. Police Chief Tyrone Stewart said all three were allegedly caught in the act of making a drug deal in South Laurel late Friday afternoon by Laurel Narcotics Division investigators.

Stewart said two suspects were arrested at the scene and a third was taken into custody on N. 7th Ave. a short time later after leading officers on a high speed car chase.

No suspects or officers were injured.

Stewart said officers confiscated a large amount of heroin and several thousand dollars in cash during the bust.

Stewart said all suspects were black males, but did not release their names. He did say that one of the suspects was allegedly a major heroin dealer in the area.

He said all three men would appear before a judge sometime this weekend and said further details about the arrests would be forthcoming.
