According to Hattiesburg Police Lt. Jon Traxler, Wallace Bolton, 30, Keith Carter, 43 Amberlee Mozingo, 23 and Chavonte McLaurin, 36, were all arrested and charged with “controlled substance, counterfeit substance, false representation.”

“Officers observed a vehicle and people behind 2305 Hardy Street around 2 a.m. Friday,” said Traxler.

While the officer was speaking to the people, he found two bags of a crystal-like substance.

“The substance was packaged in a manner common to the sale of a controlled substance; however, the substance was not real narcotics,” said Traxler.

The four were booked into the Forrest County Jail, and the investigation is ongoing.
