Last Friday (October 8, 2021), Pike County Sheriff’s Office personnel, the Mississippi Highway Patrol
SOG Team, and Probation/Parole Agents with the Mississippi Department of Corrections, conducted a shakedown search of Cell Block A, Cell Block C, the kitchen, and the laundry room in the Pike County Jail.
During the shakedown, four cell phones, multiple phone chargers, several shanks, multiple items that could be used as weapons, and other contraband were found. The shakedown search resulted from a three-week investigation that is currently still ongoing.
The Pike County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the Mississippi Highway Patrol and the Mississippi Department of Corrections for their assistance.
