A traffic stop on Mississippi 15 south netted two felony drug arrests Sunday night by Sheriff's deputies.

Reggie A. Carter, 34, of 524 Pleasant Valley Dr., and Kendall L. Hoskins, 26, of 1206 Kosciusko Road, were both charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute after they were stopped about 8 p.m.

Sheriff's Investigator Grant Myers said four ounces of methamphetamine were seized in a roadside investigation.

The meth had a street value of between $10,000 and $12,000, he said.

Also seized in the arrests were a 1991 Lexus and $560 in cash.

two felony drug charges

A Philadelphia woman was arrested on felony drug charges last week after officers searched a mobile home just outside the city limits on Road 610, commonly known as Old Indian Hospital Road.

Beaunkkia S. Price, 20, of 10351 Road 610, was charged with possession of cocaine with intent to distribute and possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute after officers searched her residence around noon on Friday.

Investigator Grant Myers said the Sheriff's office had received information that marijuana and methamphetamine were being kept and sold from a mobile home in the Hopewell community.

Price was charged after officers found 24 grams of methamphetamine with a street value of about $2,500 and 15 grams of crack cocaine with a street value of about $3,000.

Myers said the case remained under investigation, as additional arrests were expected.

No injuries reported after

shots fired into dwelling

A Philadelphia man was charged in connection with a shooting into an occupied dwelling earlier this month in the Coldwater community.

Gregory Bingham, 53, of 13190 Road 404, was charged with firing a bullet from a 12-gauge shotgun into the dwelling. No one was injured.

Sheriff's Investigator Ralph Sciple said the buckshot hit a banister and then a wall before going through two couches in a mobile home on Road 367.

Two people were inside the mobile home when the shooting occurred, he said.

"The shooting stemmed from an argument," Sciple said.
