Petal police continue area drug arrest roundup

In a continuation of last week's drug round-up, the Petal Police Department brought one man into custody Wednesday.

Petal police's High-Risk Entry and Tactics Team executed a search warrant which led to the arrest.

When officers arrived at 14 Hammett Drive, they found more than what they bargained for.

William Barnett was indicted on pre-cursor violations and officers executed a search warrant on his home. Upon inspection, officers found marijuana as well as extensive surveilance equipment.

A camera mounted in a tree in the backyard gave Barnett a view of his front yard and the street in front of his property. A police scanner was also found inside.

This is a continuation of the round-up which began last week. A year-long investigation, headed by Sgt. Jason James and Officer Jason McNelly of the Petal Police Department and investigator Roland Arnold of Lamar County, determined numerous people in the area are in possession of pre-cursors for the manufacture of methanphetamines.

Barnett is currently in custody at the Forrest County Regional Jail. His bail has not been set, and he is scheduled to appear in court Friday.
