HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

A Hub City man is behind bars in connection to a high-risk warrant that led authorities to illegal drugs and money, and two others are being sought.

Hattiesburg Police and the Forrest County Metro Narcotics unit executed a high-risk search warrant on Heiddle Street on Sept. 28, according to Hattiesburg Police Lt. Latosha Myers-Mitchell.

“Upon conducting the search, agents recovered a large amount of methamphetamine, marijuana, a handgun, a scale and several thousand dollars,” said Myers Mitchell.

Ronald Youngblood, 28, was arrested on Tuesday Oct. 3, on a warrant for trafficking in controlled substance (meth) in connection to the original search warrant.

His son, Renando Esters Jr., 27, is also wanted by authorities for trafficking a controlled substance (meth), and he goes by the name “Lil Cutty”.

Agents with the DEA, FBI, and Forrest County Sheriff’s Department also assisted with the investigation.
