Deputies swarm Picayune theater for training

PICAYUNE, MS (WLOX) - If you see deputies and law enforcement vehicles surrounding Acadiana Cinemas in Picayune Thursday, don't be alarmed. It's only a drill.

The Pearl River County Sheriff's Department and Lamar County Sheriff's Department are conducting a joint training exercise at the theater. The PRC Sheriff's Office posted a warning to its Facebook page Wednesday night alerting residents to the drill.

"Don't be alarmed by the increased presence of deputies and law enforcement vehicles, they will only be there for training," the post read.

WLOX Reporter Al Showers will also be there. Watch for more on the training exercise later today on WLOX News.
