Search warrant leads to four arrests at Highway 11 residence


The Picayune Police Department Narcotics Division and the Pearl River County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Division jointly executed a search warrant at 1701 Highway 11 North, Apartment # 1, in reference to several community complaints of alleged illegal narcotic distribution. The details were explained in a press release from Picayune Police Assistant Chief Jeremy Magri.

Magri’s press release states that at approximately 6 p.m. on September 29, 2018, detectives were executing the search warrant, when they observed a suspect, identified as Terry Lynn Horne, age 45, of 1105 West First Street, Belle Chasse, LA, standing in the front yard of the residence. Also standing in the front yard, detectives observed additional suspects identified as Demetrius Shaska Pipkins a.k.a. “No Limit”, age 39, 14061 Pleasant Hill Road, Picayune; Michael Charles Stewart a.k.a. “Little Man’ , age 55, of 1311 Sally Drive, Picayune; and Donna Louise Crumpler, age 28, of 1505 Maple Avenue, Picayune.

Detectives advised the four suspects to place their hands on a nearby car, but Horn decided to run instead and took off running south on Circle Drive in an attempt to elude the detectives. \

Two detectives, one from the Police Department and one from the Sheriff’s Department, pursued Horne on foot and were able to apprehend Horne inside of a local business on Highway 11 and they subsequently placed him under arrest for Disorderly Conduct Failure to Comply. While Horne was being escorted back toward the residence, he became combative with the detectives, but the detectives were able to secure Horne and place inside of a patrol unit.

Detectives proceeded with a search at the residence at which time they located a green back pack on the front porch of the residence. Inside the front pouch of the back pack, detectives found a black digital scale containing a white powdery residue believed to be Heroin. Detectives also located a black plastic container and a black digital scale containing a crystal residue believed to Crystal Methamphetamine taped to a large magnet on the kitchen table. This type of magnetic device is commonly used to secure and conceal illegal narcotics underneath vehicles in order to make it easier to transport them undetected.

Inside of the container, detectives located 4 clear plastic bags containing a crystal substance believed to be Crystal Methamphetamine and 1 clear plastic bag containing a white powdery substance believed to be Heroin, both a Schedule II narcotic. They also found a roll of tin (aluminum) foil and clear plastic bags commonly used to package illegal narcotics for distribution according to Magri.

Detectives then conducted a search of Crumpler’s purse and located 1 clear plastic bag containing hallucinogenic mushrooms, a Schedule I narcotic, and 2 orange clear syringes, commonly used to inject illegal narcotics.

Magri's press release stated that Crumpler, Horne, Pipkins, and Stewart were placed under arrest for two counts of Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Distribute (felony), Possesion of a Controlled Substance (misdemeanor), and Possession of Paraphernalia. All four were transported to the Criminal Justice Center where they were booked and incarcerated on the said charges.
