Whiskey, moonshine, prescription medications and other illegal drugs were seized from a residence in the Stallo community Thursday night during a joint investigation by the Sheriff's office and the state Bureau of Narcotics.
Three people were charged with multiple felonies after officers executed a warrant to search a house at the end of Road 1355, including its owner.
"We had information that the house was being used as a nightclub," Sheriff's Investigator Grant Myers said.
Zachary Burrage, 41, of Box 159, DeKalb, was charged with possession of cocaine with intent to distribute and resisting arrest by fleeing on foot. Burrage also had an outstanding warrant for driving with a suspended license.
Bryan Robertson, 34, of Frank McDay St., DeKalb, was charged with possession of crack cocaine, possession of methamphetamine, two counts misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance, two counts felony possession of a controlled substance, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and felony escape.
Larry Phillip Carter, 55, of 1211 Road 573, was charged with possession of marijuana, possession of whiskey and possession of an untaxed liquor (moonshine).
Carter owned the residence on Road 1355, Myers said.
About 20 people from Neshoba and surrounding counties were at the alleged nightclub when officers arrived about 9 p.m.
"Everybody there was searched," Myers said.
After Robertson was handcuffed, he fled on foot and was apprehended a short time later on the edge of the woods near the house, he said.
When initially approached by officers, Burrage fled and was apprehended after a short foot chase, Myers said.
Officers found cocaine, believed packaged for distribution, on Burrage when he was searched.
Whiskey, moonshine, marijuana, methamphetamine, crack cocaine, powdered cocaine, morphine, oxycodone, hydrocodone and Tramal were seized in the arrested.
Officers also seized a pistol, which was listed as stolen out of Pennsylvania.
