Cocaine bust reported in Jackson County

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Details have emerged about a crack cocaine bust in Jackson County.  According to agents with the Narcotics Task Force of Jackson County, Reginald Demico "Miko" Hunter, Lindsey Mae Smith and Kellie Remmone Guy were all taken to jail on drug charges.

Agents tell us they charged Hunter with possession of crack cocaine with the intent to distribute.  They allegedly found Smith in possession of drug paraphernalia.  And they accused Guy of being in possession of powder cocaine.

Hunter, 37, years old lives at the 4000 block of Community Street in Moss Point. Smith, 59, years old lives at the 5000 block of Meridian Street in Moss Point. Guy, 19, years old lives at the 4000 block of Briggs Street in Moss Point.

We're told through a news release the charges on Hunter and Smith stem from a search warrant executed by agents at Hunter's apartment.  Agents reportedly seized a large amount of crack cocaine and cash from Hunter's apartment.

According to task force members, the arrest of Hunter is part of an ongoing investigation of a major crack cocaine distribution ring in Moss Point.

Task force agents say the charge on Guy is the result of an investigation by agents which led to a traffic stop by K-9 Deputy Richard Palmer. Agents claim they seized a large amount of powder cocaine from Guy.

All three are currently in the Jackson County Adult Detention Center awaiting an initial appearance in Jackson County Court. Hunter faces up to 24 years and $500,000 fine, if convicted. Smith faces a maximum $500 fine and up to six months, if convicted. Guy faces up to eight years and $50,000 fine, if convicted.
