An ongoing criminal investigation at a Saucier motel led to the felony drug arrest of a Pass Christian man Wednesday.
Harrison County Sheriff Melvin Brisolara said deputies responded to the Riverview Inn on Highway 53. That’s where they came into contact with John Wallace Dubuisson, 44.
Brisolara said Dubuisson became disorderly with deputies and attempted to run while throwing more than 30 grams of methamphetamine on the ground. Dubuisson was quickly arrested and the drugs he threw out were recovered.
Dubuisson is charged with felony possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. He was booked into the Harrison County Jail with a $51,000 bond. He has since bonded out.
