Deputies seize $300,000 of liquid meth

Update: Caught!

Rankin County Sheriff Bryan Bailey issued the following press release.

On Saturday February 4th, 2017, at approximately 8:30 p.m. Rankin County Interstate Interdiction Task Force Deputy Sanders conducted a traffic stop on a Silver Ford Pickup on Interstate 20 near Pelahatchie for a traffic violation. During the traffic stop the deputy suspected the vehicle was transporting drugs and/or contraband. A consensual search revealed two and one half gallons of liquid methamphetamine concealed in juice containers. The driver Felix Josue COLON-RODRIGUEZ, and passenger Rebacca Lynn WHITING were in the process of being arrested when Felix Josue COLON-RODRIGUEZ ran on foot east on Interstate 20 and into a wooded area. Deputy Sanders detained and secured Rebacca Lynn WHITING, the vehicle and the methamphetamine and radioed for backup. Numerous law enforcement officers responded to the area and searched for RODRIGUEZ but have been unable to locate him.

Rebacca Lynn WHITING was placed under arrest for trafficking of methamphetamine and was transported to the Rankin County Jail. District Attorney Michael Guest will bring her before Rankin County Court Judge Kent McDaniel for an initial appearance. No Bond has been set at this time.

The search for Felix Josue COLON-RODRIGUEZ continues and additional marked and unmarked deputies are in the area searching for him. We are asking the public to please call the Rankin County Sheriff’s Office 601-825-1480 or 911 if they spot him. He was last seen running from the scene wearing gray sweatpants, gray t-shirt and tennis shoes. RODRIGUEZ is a 27 year old male, 5’7” tall and weighs approximately 160lbs. He has brown eyes, black hair and medium complexion. He also has tattoos on the left arm, right hand and left hand. He also has no violent crimes on his criminal history and was not armed. The street value of the methamphetamine is approximately $300,000.00.

Where's my treat?

The face of a winner.
On the loose.

I don't understand. A white girl with pink hair and a Mexican boy in a pickup headed east on 20. What could be suspicious about that?

Danged if those Hispanics don't ALWAYS make a " traffic violation" as soon as they get to Rankin Co. They must save them up.

That's 3 miles of curve less interstate geographically named by myself as "The Straights of Pelahatchie". Apparently a tough place for drug runners.

You never see the volume of drug busts on I-55 North in Madison County as you see on I-20 in Rankin County. I guess no one doing drugs in Memphis.I'm fix'in to take a thick steak to the drug dog for his enjoyment. Oh, the white chick loves the drugs not the dud.

A Mexican stopped near Pelahatchie. Shocker.

And no mention of the cash haul. Again, smart.

Again.... Drugs are seized going east. Cash is seized going west, after the drugs are sold. Nice try.

they got nice cameras on I-20

5:29, do you actually believe the best way to move cash is in a vehicle driving down the road? You cannot be that dumb.

I'm in favor of Rankin County LE (or any other county for that matter) keeping drugs off the street. I'm just wondering how it is that RCSO seems to make a bust of this sort every 24-48hrs yet you seldom hear about busts in other areas of a similar nature. IF the RCSO activities ARE legal, then why can't they share their methods with other departments so they can be as effective. Is there a way to look into how many "traffic violation stops" are made on a daily basis by RCSO on I-20? I'd be interested to know how many Mexican guys you have to pull over on average before you make a six figure drug bust.

Sometimes it's better not to publicize the arrest and/or seizure in order to work a bigger case. The people transporting the money and drugs are small fish...

Rankin has a task force. Pearl, Rankin SO, and other law enforcement agencies are participating.

Some of the people in Rankin country wish the task force would arrest a few of the local meth producers before spending all day setting out on the interstate.

12:28; How has it affected you so far?

4:29, waking up to the smell of meth cooking isn't that enjoyable. Running the meth heads off when they are stealing mine and the neighbors belongings. High speed chases through the neighborhood when someone tries to stop them. Fences being broken down so the meth heads can run through the neighborhood. Strange people driving through the neighborhood looking for the meth dealers.
These are just some of the things we have to put up with while all of the deputies are setting along the interstate. Guess it doesn't help that a person in the sheriff's dept. lets the local meth heads know when the law is coming to their neighborhood.

A Puerto Rican driving a truck with a Texas tag? Right. But, wait...are you suggesting he should be let go?

And if 10:04 lives in a neighborhood where all he describes is going on, he really needs to talk to a real estate agent about relocation.

12:28 - I didn't ask you to recite everything you had ever heard about meth-heads. I asked how it has affected YOU so far. Thanks.

11:09, you must be a meth head. I did list a few things that affected me. I had to run 5 meth heads from my neighbors house. They knocked his door in and were loading up his furniture. 3 ran, 1 tried to sneak up behind me, and one tried to attack me. They got a surprise.

A little while back a couple of troopers chased a car full of meth heads through our neighborhood. Even though they were right behind the car they failed to notice the one get out of the car carrying a bag. He jumped a few fences and got away with the dope.

According to the local meth heads their friend who works in the sheriff's dept lets them know when a patrol is going to be driving through the neighborhood.

The people in Rankin country may not have any protection but the people living in the states east of us sure do.

Yessir! I Seen It With Mine Own Eyes! said...

1:06 - Who do you really think will believe that crap? But, to recap, the Highway Patrol (you said troopers) was chasing a car load of meth heads and unbeknownst to the troopers (but known to YOU) one of the chasees jumped out of the car and hoped a fence with a bag of dope and got away.

But, wait....there's more. You're such a stellar citizen and neighborhood watch advocate that you ran four people out of the neighbor's yard and, although they 'got away', you know they were 'meth heads'. I see.

Man! You really need more dead-bolts on the door of your double-wide. Region 8 is your contact.

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.
