Police: 3 Petal women illegally resold prescription drugs

Three Petal women are in jail facing drug charges of selling prescription narcotics. 

Petal police and metro narcotics officers arrested all three suspects Friday at two residences on Pine Street. 

Taken into custody were 32-year-old Michelle Daw, 50-year-old Virginia Cephus, and 64-year-old Gail Wheat. 

Police say the suspects got legitimate prescriptions from doctors and illegally resold the drugs.

"We just wanted to get it out to the citizens of Petal that we are working with narcotics investigations to stop this from going on, and also get to the perpetrators that are selling the narcotics that we're not going to tolerate it in the city of Petal," says police Det. Gavin Guy.
