Biloxi Police Officer Charged With Selling Ecstasy

A Biloxi Police officer is behind bars after narcotics agents say he was charged with selling illegal drugs.

Agents with the Narcotics Task Force say Darrell Cvitanovich, Jr is a 14-year-veteran officer who, in the past, investigated drug felonies with the Biloxi Police Department.

Drug agents say the 35-year-old is charged with one count of sale of the illegal drug ecstasy and possession with intent to distribute.

Narcotics agents told WLOX News that a search warrant was served at the K-9 officer's home Thursday.

According to standard federal procedure, Cvitanovich is being held in a special jail cell, since he is likely under the same roof as people he has arrested in the past. His bond was set at $25,000.

Cvitanovich has been placed on administrative leave during the investigation. He faces up to 60 years in prison if convicted on both charges.

The officer's father, D.D. Cvitanovich Sr., is a retired state trooper who served as the city's public safety director from 1989 to 1993 during the administration of Mayor Pete Halat.
