Two Noxapater men sentenced in drug manufacturing case

Two Noxapater men pleaded guilty in Neshoba County Circuit Court to manufacturing marijuana in connection with a case authorities described as a highly sophisticated drug operation being run out of a house, doublewide mobile home and two storage buildings prior to their arrests last year.

Theodore Joseph Jarosz, 52, of 10160 Road 843, Noxapater, pleaded guilty to manufacture of marijuana, less than one kilogram.

Circuit Court Judge Vernon Cotten sentenced him to eight years in prison and fined him $1,500.

Francis Jarosz, 80, of 10130 Road 848, Noxapater, also pleaded guilty to manufacture of marijuana, less than one kilogram. He received a two-year sentence and was fined $1,500.

More than 200 marijuana plants with a street value of over $100,000 were seized during the raid off Road 848 in the Stallo community by county, state and federal officers in July 2011.

Officers with the Neshoba County Sheriff s office, the state Bureau of Narcotics and the federal Drug Enforcement Administration executed the search warrant on the property and found the marijuana growing in containers.

Then-Neshoba County Sheriff Donnie Adkins said the sophisticated operation was unique to this area.

I haven t seen a setup like they had ever in Neshoba County, he said at the time. Our speculation is we don't feel like any of this was being distributed around here. We feel like it was being sent off. We had never received any information about marijuana coming from that area.

The tip originated from the state Bureau of Narcotics.

The 213 marijuana plants were being moved from the house and mobile home to the storage buildings as they matured to the final stage of growth before harvest. The plants varied in size with the largest up to four feet tall.

Several large bags of packaged marijuana, which were found in a refrigerator, were also seized in the raid along with four vehicles, several guns, the storage buildings, an all-terrain vehicle and over $4,000 in cash.
