COVINGTON COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

A Covington County man is behind bars facing multiple felony charges after an early morning search warrant led to drugs, guns and an alligator.

Jared Scott Drennan, 40, was arrested at his residence on Salem School Road in Covington County this morning after a search warrant according to Undersheriff Layne McLaurin.

“We have been getting multiple complaints on this individual for some time now, and this is not only joint work between multiple agencies, but it’s a help in the community to take people like this off the streets,” McLaurin said.

McLaurin said officers with the Covington County SRT team, Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics, Jones County Sheriff’s Department and Mississippi Department of Wildlife and Fisheries participated in the operation.

“We did find multiple kinds of narcotics, along with meth, drug paraphernalia, stolen guns, as well as numerous stolen items from various places including Jones County,” McLaurin said. “The violator was also in possession of a live alligator that he was keeping in a cooler.”

Drennan was charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, receiving and disposing stolen property, possession of stolen property and possession of a stolen firearm.

The Mississippi Department of Wildlife and Fisheries also charged Drennan with unlawful possession of an alligator.

Drennan’s bond was set at $130,000 during his initial appearance, and he remains in custody at the Covington County Jail.

    Though soft-spoken, Steven Anderson hits hard. A "violent" runner as Southern Miss teammate Keon Howard describes him, perhaps Anderson is making up for all those years spent at quarterback. "Steven runs like he doesn't want to be hit no more,” Howard said.
