Meth, fentanyl trafficking arrests made at North Bend


A tip about drug activity in the North Bend community has led to several arrests for meth and fentanyl trafficking.

On Thursday, Neshoba County Sheriff’s Office deputies received a tip of drug activity at 10121 Road 2826 in the North Bend community.

Deputies began surveillance on the residence and eventually made a traffic stop on a silver Chevy Camaro soon after it left. The traffic stop revealed an active warrant on one of the passengers.

The rear-seat passenger, Hannah Eubanks, was arrested for an
active warrant from the city of Philadelphia.

A deputy observed a pink purse where she was sitting and was given consent to search the purse. The search revealed a clear crystal substance believed to be
methamphetamine, the authorities said.

At about 5:30 p.m., deputies stopped a white Toyota SUV as it attempted to visit the residence.

The driver, Carla White, was questioned and she revealed that she possessed a vial of liquid fentanyl.

The plan was to trade the liquid fentanyl for methamphetamine, law enforcement officials said.

A search warrant was obtained through Neshoba County Justice Court based on the facts, officials said.

A search warrant was executed on the residence, which led to three arrests.

Beverly Ann “Sissy” Cumberland, Richard Chad Cumberland, and Monica Edwards were arrested and charged with trafficking drugs, according to Sheriff Eric Clark.

• Richard Chad Cumberland was charged with trafficking methamphetamine.

• Beverly Ann Cumberland was charged with trafficking methamphetamine.

• Monica Edwards was charged with trafficking methamphetamine.

• Hannah Eubanks was charged with felony possession of methamphetamine.

• Carla White was charged with possession of fentanyl with intent to distribute.

Neshoba County Sheriff’s narcotics investigators serve on the state Attorney General’s Fentanyl Strike Task Force, Clark said.

This is the second fentanyl arrest made involving these residents, Clark said.

On Jan. 27, Beverly Cumberland was arrested for possession of fentanyl and was out on felony bond for that arrest.

“Tips to law enforcement work,” Clark said.
