On Tuesday, Jan. 24, the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics and the U.S. Marshals Service partnered together to conduct a search warrant at a Jackson residence that resulted in the following being found: 9.4 pounds of marijuana, 496.5 grams of powder fentanyl, 350 grams of methamphetamine, 44 dosage units of hydrocodone, 34 dosage units of amphetamine, 23 grams of crack cocaine, 11,746 dosage units of counterfeit M30s (fentanyl), 200 dosage units of MDMA, 91 dosage units of dilaudid, 110 dosage units of suboxone, three firearms, and both audio and video surveillance equipment.

The bust resulted in 31-year-old Angel Hinton and 32-year-old Roman Walker – subjects of the search warrant – being arrested at the Hampton Inn in Hinds County.

Walker has been charged with aggravated trafficking of fentanyl, trafficking of methamphetamine, possession with intent to district marijuana, possession of schedule II (amphetamine), possession of schedule II (hydrocodone), possession of crack cocaine, possession with intent to distribute MDMA, conspiracy to commit a felony, and possession of a stolen firearm.
