MBN narcotics arrests in Wilkinson County

On Thursday, Oct. 5, the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics (MBN) executed search warrants on two residences in Wilkinson County after nearly a year-long investigation.  

30-year-old Melvin Jackson, 22-year-old Aynna Holmes, 31-year-old Gregory Deener, and 49- year-old Willie Smith, who also had a warrant for attempted murder, were all arrested with no  incident. The four individuals will each be charged with trafficking a schedule II-controlled substance (fentanyl). Additional charges and arrests are anticipated in relation to this case.  

Upon execution, MBN agents seized the following:  

  • 9,687 dosage units of methamphetamine pills 
  • 2,191 dosage units of fentanyl pills 
  • 202 grams of marijuana 
  • 70 grams of white fentanyl powder 
  • 9 grams of brown heroin 
  • 33 grams of powder cocaine 
  • 64 grams of crack cocaine 
  • 43 grams of methamphetamine 
  • 222 grams of blue fentanyl powder 
  • 2 dosage units of fentanyl transdermal patches 
  • 14 dosage units of suboxone 
  • 7 handguns 
  • 2 assault rifles 
  • A 2019 Cadillac sedan 
  • $5,267.00 in U.S. currency 

The weights and amounts of the above-mentioned controlled substances are approximated, and they will be sent to the Mississippi Crime Lab for further analysis. 

“With the pouring of fentanyl and other drugs across our southern border, MBN and DPS will  continue the aggressive efforts to identify and dismantle drug organizations who distribute these potentially deadly substances in our communities, said Commissioner Sean Tindell. “If you have  any information on this type of activity, please contact MBN or your local Crime Stoppers. It could  save a life.” 

The Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics was assisted by the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation and  Mississippi Highway Patrol during this case.
