Clinton PD busts forgery ring

 The Clinton Police Department issued the following press release:

Investigation Nets Prescription Forgery Ring Bust
Clinton Police and MBN partner to combat growing problem
Clinton, Miss. (October 15, 2015) – In early August of 2015, the Clinton Police Department (CPD) Narcotics Unit, in conjunction with the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics (MBN) and the Mississippi Board of Pharmacy (MBP), began investigating multiple fraudulently manufactured prescriptions being filled in the Tri-County areas.
Between early August and October, the CPD, MBN, and other law enforcement agencies had recovered forty-three (43) fraudulent prescriptions out of the Hinds, Madison, Rankin, and Warren County areas. The CPD effectively arrested eight (8) suspects and was eventually able to source the suspects responsible for the manufacturing and distribution of the fraudulent prescriptions.
On Wednesday, October 7, 2015, the CPD executed a document search warrant at 1000 East Northside Drive (the North Town Apartments) apartment 154 in Jackson, the residence of Prince and Elizabeth Johnson. Inside, agents of the MBN seized computers, printers, hard drives, and prescription grade paper that was believed to have been used to manufacture the fraudulent prescriptions. Drugs were also seized.
Over thirty (30) suspects have been implemented in the case due to their information being used on the fraudulent prescriptions to obtain the controlled substances.

In addition to the prescription fraud investigation, a runaway juvenile was found at the apartment building during the search warrant. The 17 year old female had been reported missing since September of 2014 and human trafficking was suspected. The minor’s case was adopted by the FBI.

Drugs obtained:
Roxicodone (Oxycodone) and Promethazine with Codeine Syrup was the organization’s primary targeted controlled drugs. Dilaudid (Hydromorphone) and Norco (Hydrocodone) were also targeted. The controlled drugs that had been obtained and subsequently distributed to the streets in the tri-county areas, within a two (2) month period, was estimated to a value over $100,000.00.

Agents are confident that other fraudulent prescriptions will turn up. The investigation continues.

One (1) to five (5) years in prison per each count of prescription fraud (MS CODE SEC 41-29-144).

Subjects arrested were:

(primary) - manufacturing prescriptions / selling the drugs

Prince John Johnson of Jackson
Elizabeth “Bell” Johnson of Jackson
(secondary) - selling the drugs

Brenton “Flip” Taylor of Jackson
Demario “Yo” Wilson of Jackson
Montavious “Flag” Johnsonv of Jackson

Except for Demario, Cynthia, and Montavious, they all look so... normal.

What is the legitimate usage for codeine syrup, other than making "purple drank?"

Wayward youth. A classic case of good kids gone bad. Now I guess I'll have to get my drugs legally.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
