Laurel woman behind bars for drug charges

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - A Laurel woman is behind bars for drug charges after a three week investigation done by the Laurel Narcotics Division.

Authorities have arrested 43-year-old Victoria Buchanan of Laurel.

On Tuesday, authorities executed a search warrant at 126 North 14th Ave in Laurel and seized about a pound of marijuana and cash.

She is charged with one count of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.

Buchanan appeared in Laurel Municipal Court Wednesday and her bond was set at $20,000.

However, Buchanan will remain in the Jones County Jail with a hold on her for the Mississippi Department of Correction because she was on house arrest for a previous conviction of two counts of a possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute.
