"The number one drug abuse problem in Mississippi is no longer marijuana or cocaine," said MBN Director Marshall Fisher. "The biggest threat is pharmaceutical drug abuse and as a direct result organized groups are focusing on pharmacy burglaries, which have become a major problem not only in Mississippi but in many other states, as well."

All three are being held in the Choctaw County Detention Center. They have been charged with one count each of burglary of a commercial building.

The arrests were the culmination of a six-month investigation into a series pharmacy burglaries investigation called "The Trash Bag Gang."

Additional charges are pending a review by a Choctaw County Grand Jury.
