Petal couple arrested for selling controlled substance

PETAL, MS (WDAM) - A Petal couple is now in Forrest County jail awaiting their first appearance.

Forrest and Perry Metro Narcotics along with the Petal Police Department served arrest warrants on the 100th block of West Cherry Drive.

Both wife and husband, Sarah and Andy Thomas were arrested for selling controlled substance.

Detective Mitch Nobles said Metro Narcotics and Petal Police Department work together on a daily basis to get the drugs out of the city.

"If they're aware that they have a warrant I mean the suggestion is to come turn yourself in to the police department," said Nobles.

Sarah and Andy Thomas are scheduled to have their first appearance Friday.
