MOSS POINT, MS (WLOX) -

An investigation into a reported domestic dispute led to the discovery of synthetic marijuana or "Spice", marijuana and heroin around 8:30 Saturday morning in Moss Point.

Moss Point Police Chief Keith Davis said officers arrived at a home and saw marijuana.

They began searching the home and found an estimated $30,000 worth of drugs. Those drugs included a large amount of synthetic marijuana, approximately two grams of heroin, and just under an ounce of marijuana.

"This is a very significant drug bust. We anticipate that this will lead to more arrests and a larger investigation," Davis said. "Police officers and MET are seeing more and more of the synthetic drugs. This is a serious problem for coastal cities as ingesting chemicals from the drug is extremely hazardous to health."

Davis said multiple people were arrested. However, he wouldn't release the names of those arrested due to an ongoing investigation.

Possession of spice and heroin is a felony offense in the State of Mississippi and carries a maximum penalty of 30 years if convicted, Davis explained.

If anyone has information concerning this or any other crime, they can call the Moss Point Police at 228-475-1711 or MET at 228-938-6667.  Citizens can also call Gulf Coast Crime Stoppers at 1-877-433-8477.  Information can be submitted to Gulf Coast Crime Stoppers at their web site located at www.gulfcoastcrimestoppers.org. The identity of persons providing information is considered confidential.
