ADAMS COUNTY, Miss.- It was only a simple search warrant, but what the Adams County Sheriff’s department found was anything but a simple operation.
On September 13, Sheriff Travis Patten and his officers began an investigation from the Special Operations Group at a home in Natchez. The search began as a result of a tip.
Sgt. Cal Green with the Adams County Sheriff’s Department confirmed with News Mississippi that deputies discovered stolen property, methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, surveillance equipment and much more. John Adams was initially arrested for the items and taken to the county jail.
As the search continued another man was arrested in connection to the case, Michael Johnson. He was in possession of Xanax, methamphetamine, and a stolen, loaded weapon with additional drug charges. He is being held without bond.
More methamphetamine, loaded guns, and drug paraphernalia were found in Johnson’s home.
Two days later Carlos Owens and Derrick Owens were arrested at their home when officials found over two pounds of marijuana, spice, 40 grams of cocaine, 57 Alprazolam, 21 Lortabs, scales, baggies, packing material, two loaded pistols, one loaded rifle, surveillance equipment, two vehicles and $1,670.
Deputies also removed six pit bulls from the home who they believe were involved in dog fighting. Both men will be charged with the dog seizure along with the other drug and stolen items found in their home.
