STONE COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

The Stone-Wiggins Narcotics Task Force, with the assistance of the Harrison County Sheriff's Department and the Coastal Narcotics Enforcement Team (CNAT), arrested four suspects in connection to a drug bust Monday night in Perkinston.

According to Stone County Sheriff's Captain Jay Green, on Monday afternoon deputies were in the process of activating an arrest warrant for 33-year-old Jerrad Elsberry at his home on Lott Road in Perkinston. That's when, according to Green, Elsberry fled in his Toyota Camry. All three law enforcement agencies chased Elsberry. Green said during the chase Elsberry allegedly threw a package of methamphetamine out of his window. Authorities were able to stop Elsberry and arrest him. Green said authorities headed back to Elsberry's home where three other suspects were found.

All four suspects are allegedly linked to the 443 grams of methamphetamine that was confiscated Monday. Depending on how that methamphetamine was sold, Green said, he estimates its street value is $20,000. Green said deputies executed a search warrant at Elsberry's home on July 1.

All four suspects were arrested and are being held at the Stone County Adult Detention Center.

According to Green, Corey Taylor was arrested for misdemeanor paraphernalia. He is being held on a $1,000 bond. Jerrad Elsberry was arrested for felony fleeing, possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, simple possession of methamphetamine, possession of a fire arm by a convicted felon. He is currently being held without bond due to his probation status in Texas and Mississippi.  

Green said, Mike Wood was arrested for felony possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute. Tiffany Wood, who is Mike's wife, was arrested for felony possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute and simple possession of methamphetamine.  

"This shows that multiple agencies working together can help to effectively take narcotics off the streets," Green said.
