Last night (July 29, 2017), the Walthall County Sheriff's Office and Tylertown Police
Department seized drugs, paraphernalia, and other drug related items while responded to a call about someone believing they were being looked for by authorities.
Deputy J. Dyar, Captain T. Jordan, and Officer J. Greer responded and spoke with an individual who was acting as if he was under the influence of some type of illegal substances. Officers went inside the residence with permission and found an individual passed out with a needle in his arm. An ambulance was called for the individual who had just "shot up". That individual refused medical treatment. A disabled child was also found inside the residence and DHS was contacted. The investigation is still ongoing and several arrest warrants are expected to be signed by a judge stemming from this call.
"We currently have several deputies enrolled in a class for the use of naloxone, which blocks or reduces the affects of opioid medication and can be administered by deputies in overdose situations. Good job to these officers for going beyond the call and investigating further into the situation." Sheriff K. Breland
