"Operation Spring Cleaning" - Picayune Police

May 20, 2017

 

The Picayune Police Department’s Narcotics Division has recently conducted a week long undercover operation from May 10 to May 17 called “Operation Spring Cleaning.”

 

On May 15 at around 5pm, Picayune Undercover Narcotics Detectives were conducting “Operation Spring Cleaning” at a local business on Sycamore Road when two suspects, identified as 56 year old Gregory Samuel Cook of Picayune and 33 year old Melissa Deverall Kent  of Picayune, arrived at the business.

 

Detectives attempted to make contact with the suspects, but Cook and Kent fled the scene in their vehicle in an attempt to evade law enforcement personnel. During the pursuit down George Mitchell Road, detectives observed Cook and Kent throw several clear plastic bags out of the window, believed to contain Heroin.

 

The chase ended when the suspects stopped on George Mitchell Road near H.K. Stockstill Road and the suspects were detained without further incident. A search of Cook’s person found $475 and pills identified as suboxone in his wallet. Detectives then searched the suspect’s vehicle where they found a set of digital scales containing a crystal residue, several orange and clear syringes, two clear plastic bags containing a brown powdered substance believed to be heroin and one plastic bag containing a crystal like substance.

 

Detectives placed Cook under arrest for possession of controlled substance heroin with intent to distribute, possession of controlled substance methamphetamine with intent to distribute, conspiracy to sell controlled substance heroin, tampering with physical evidence, failure to stop motor vehicle when officer signals and misdemeanor possession of controlled substance.

 

Kent was arrested for possession of controlled substance heroin with intent to distribute, possession of controlled substance methamphetamine with intent to distribute, conspiracy to sell controlled substance heroin, tampering with physical evidence and possession of paraphernalia.

 

Both suspects were transported to the Criminal Justice Center where they were booked and incarcerated. The suspect’s vehicle and currency were seized due to being in close proximity of illegal narcotics.

 

This was just one case where the Picayune Police Department’s Narcotics Division was hard at work. Other arrests made during “Operation Spring Cleaning” were:

  1. 29 year old Justin Michael Garrett of Poplarville, MS was arrested on May 10th for false representation of controlled substance.
