MOSS POINT, MS (WLOX) - Four Jackson County men were arrested just after noon Friday in a operation that started at a car wash, and led to a restaurant and a barber shop. One of those men now faces 10 years in prison on a felony simple assault of a police officer.
Agents with the Narcotics Task Force of Jackson County were acting on a tip from the public about alleged drug activity at a car wash on Main Street in Moss Point.
When a deputy approached Larry Kee Magee, the 22-year-old allegedly threw car wash cleaner at the officer, knocked him down and ran away. Two other deputies caught up with him inside a nearby Subway. It's unclear if Magee, of Moss Point, had any drugs in his possession.
Magee had two warrants through Moss Point Police Department, including one for aggravated assault and another for armed robbery.
Back at the car wash, two Moss Point men, Marco Devon Odom, 35, and David Hudson, 63 were arrested. Odom faces a probation violation through the state Department of Corrections.
Hudson, of Pascagoula, will face fines for misdemeanor driving under the influence and driving with a suspended license.
At a nearby barbershop, Jerold Allen Robberson, 28, of Moss Point, was charged on a possession of oxycontin. He faces up to eight years in prison, if convicted.
