Pike County MS Sheriff's Office deputies made a traffic stop at the intersection of Magnolia-Holmesville Road and Old Hwy 24, and ended up finding 5 guns, 3 ski masks, 38 grams of marijuana, $760 cash, a T-Mobile portable WIFI router, 1 black toboggan. The 5 suspects were taken into custody, and charged with Felony Possession of a Controlled Substance While in Possession of a Firearm.
Arrested were Brandon Dean, John Osby, Xavier Pittman, Jaylin Hawthorne, and LeCameron Reynolds. No bond has been set at this time.
