GREENE COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - Four people were arrested during a Greene County drug roundup Monday.
Sheriff Stanley McLeod said the roundup was the result of a year-long investigation and was meant to send a message to drug dealers. McLeod said drug abuse is an epidemic that stretches beyond the borders of Green County.
"We may not catch all of them but we are definitely setting that goal", said McLeod.
- Christine Sumner, 55 – charged with six counts of transfer of a controlled substance within 1,500 feet of a church
- Matlyn Franks, 56 – charged with two counts of sale of a controlled substance
- Christopher “C-murder” Sumlin, 36 – charged with sale of a controlled substance within 920 feet of a church
- Richard Jones, 56 – charged with three counts of sale of a controlled substance
McLeod said more drug arrests are expected.
