On September 18, 2018, at around 10:00 pm, Picayune Police Narcotics Division, along with the Pearl River County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Division, were conducting proactive patrols when they observed a red Cadillac CTS traveling eastbound on Rosa Street at a high rate of speed as well as traveling in the middle of the roadway according to a press release from Assistant Police Chief Jeremy Magri.
At this time, detectives were able to conduct a traffic stop on the vehicle on Davis Street near Weems Street for a traffic violation for Careless Driving. When the detectives approached the vehicle, they requested a valid driver’s license from the driver and valid identification card from the passenger of the vehicle.
