ELLISVILLE, MS (WDAM) -

On Friday the 13th, the Jones County Sheriff’s Department executed a county-wide drug round up, targeting the homes of known drug dealers.

Members of SWAT, Narcotics, Investigations and Patrol divisions set up an organized effort called “Operation Bad Luck."

The bust resulted in more than a dozen drug arrests before lunch. Five search warrants were executed and resulted in the seizure of marijuana, methamphetamine, cocaine and numerous weapons. 

In the weeks leading up to “Operation Bad Luck,” it was determined which addresses were in the business of selling illegal narcotics. 

More search warrants are expected to be executed this weekend, as well as several more arrest warrants. 

“If you make it your business to sell drugs, and you know who you are…more importantly the Jones County Sheriff’s Department knows who you are, we are coming after you.  Go ahead and make it easy on yourself, turn yourself in to the Sheriff’s Department by calling 601-425-3147,” Sheriff Alex Hodge said.
