38 Lbs. of Meth Seized

Rankin County Sheriff Bryan Bailey issued the following statement.


On October 5th, 2018, at approximately 5:45 p.m., Rankin County Interdiction Deputy Johnson conducted a traffic stop on a White Toyota passenger car for a traffic violation on Interstate 55 in Rankin County, MS. The driver was identified as Santiago GUIERREZ, and the passenger was identified as, Wendy HOLGUIN. Consent to search the vehicle was obtained and the vehicle was transported to the Rankin County Sheriff’s Office Shop where an inspection of the vehicle revealed a numerous plastic wrapped bundles hidden in the vehicle. A total of approximately 38.4 pounds of methamphetamine ice was recovered from the vehicle. The Federal Department of Homeland Security, the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics, the Madison Police Department and the Brandon Police Department all were involved and participated in the investigation. Both the driver and the passenger were arrested for aggravated trafficking of methamphetamine and transported to the Rankin County Jail.

The retail value of the methamphetamine is approximately half a million dollars.

Both suspects will appear before District Attorney Michael Guest and Rankin County Court Judge Kent McDaniel’s for an initial appearance. No bond has been set at this time.

The Department of Homeland Security, MBN, Madison Police Department and Brandon Police Department all responded and assisted with the investigation.

The methamphetamine originated from Mexico and it is strongly suspected the destination was the Jackson/Metro Area.






Kingfish note: I thought banning over the counter sales of Sudafed was going to stop this from happening.

Apparently banning OTC Sudafed sales in Mississippi does not impact what Mexico does. Who knew?

Mr. White, Jessie and Mike better figure out a new transportation process. Guess they still haven't gotten over shutting down Pollos Hermanos.

Banning OTC pseudoephedrine stopped people from manufacturing meth here in MS. This meth, as clearly stated by the press release, was imported from Mexico. I would surmise that there aren’t such restrictions on obtaining the ingredients for meth in Mexico. I know you don’t like Fisher, but you overshot your target on this one.

KF, just like the idiots that continue to say casino revenue was designated for education and would solve the funding issue, your 'note' at the end is just as stupid. NOBODY said that the Sudafed ban would stop the selling or using of meth. It has greatly reduced the production of method MS, making those neighborhoods safer of nothing else. And it slowed the thefts of automobile batteries from vehicles parked on the street. But just as having the popo harvest all the weed grown in MS it won't stop the sale of all maryjo in the state.

This meth was manufactured in Mexico. It was not made in MS. What part of the effect of Sudafed sales in MS do you think would have on this Mexico production

Sudafed? We don't need no stinkin' Sudafed- every cartel ever

Kingfish said...

All it did was push out the local supply, which created a market for the cartels. Now we get more meth and it is cheaper. I warned you peeps when they banned OTC sudafed that all it would do is push people into pills and heroin. Guess you don't read the headlines.

The only thing this sudafed ban did was make it tougher for law abiding citizens to get the medications they need, oh, and enrich the doctors a little bit more. But keep playing whack a mole.

It is simple economics. Supply and demand. As long as someone is willing to pay for it, someone is going to sell it. Unfortunately, no amount of government regulations or laws can change that fact.

KF is right. Banning OTC like Sudafed was supposed to end the meth crisis. Instead, it's paved the way for Mexican cartels to come into the USA. And no..a wall isn't going to solve the problem....

Attn hispanics with Texas plates : Don't travel in Rankin county Mississippi with or without drugs. Rankin county officers will stop you for "it looks like your tire pressure is a little low" as their German shepherd is sniffing around your car. By all means I am not insinuating that they are profiling!

Anonymous said...

We should not celebrate drug busts. Any time supply is cut, everyone loses in the failed drug war. I am so tired of reading these pointless headlines regarding seizures.

Unless there is a huge seizure of cash. Then, I guess the officers get a new Tahoe.

Anonymous said...

If there was not a large amount of cash in the vehicle, they probably had already been stopped prior to this where the cash was probably "voluntarily forfeited".

Anonymous said...

We've seen a number of these press releases over the years. Does anyone, any lawyer out there, know what sort of sentence these mules receive upon conviction?

@9:35 It's not profiling if the majority of the time it's true.

Attn 9:44 Apparently you understand the concept and reality of profiling.

Anonymous said...

@9:11 must be one of those people who thinks the banning of guns will magically stop shootings. Somebody tell him please, that while it may not be legal to buy sudaphed in MISSISSIPPI, it is perfectly legal to buy it almost everywhere ELSE in the world. So...if someone REALLY wanted to, they could take a short day trip to Memphis or Birmingham or New Orleans or Atlanta, etc. etc. etc. and pick up some sudaphed THERE and bring it home in their coat pocket. So, unless we plan to put border patrol agents on every road that comes into MS and implement put downs and vehicle searches of every car crossing into our state, the ONLY thing the MS sudaphed ban does it keep law-abiding people from getting quick relief when they have a head cold.

I agree with @kingfish.

Allthis did was hurt the small business owners in Mississippi. Same thing is going to be repeated with marijuana. Once it becomes legalized here, it'll be too late and very corporate. There goes the investment and jobs that could help revitalize our struggling delta farming economy. Now all these MSU grads with farming and turf management type degrees are being hired in Colorado, etc.

38 lbs we're siezed, that means about 275lb got thru.

KF, what banning OTC pseudoephedrine did was make MS much safer by eliminating clandestine meth labs. These labs generally involved very dangerous chemicals, explosions and the like to places where innocent people lived. i.e. neighborhoods and trailer parks. Many a meth manufacturer used the same microwave to make his meth with these toxic chemicals as they used to cook their children’s food. Any idiot can understand that having essentially no more home grown meth labs in MS is good. Very good. Nobody ever said banning OTC pseudoephedrine would prevent meth from being brought into MS. But keep acting like a Senate judiciary democrat by changing the question so you can give the answer you want to.

Kingfish said...

more meth, cheaper meth, and more heroin, more pills.

Yup, any idiot.

Anonymous said...

funny how the ban on OTC sudafed stopped local labs, you would not know it up here in Washington County. like many i have several family members on this crap and they continue to cook just like before. it is a little harder for them to get teh sudafed, but they still find ways to do it. all it really stopped was highschool kids that make their first venture into cooking. but the hard core addicts still cook every day. Meanwhile i have to go to my doctor and pay for a visit just to get cold meds that will work.....

These illegal drug traffickers will do time in our prison (at Taxpayer expense) & then they will be released to live in the great USA.

Louis LeFleur said...

If MS is one of the only (the only?) states that made this drug illegal for OTC sales, then you know by default that it was a stupid idea.

So true 9:55. I pick some up in my trips to TN. Along with my lottery tickets.

Anonymous said...

Why did we not take the rational step of scanning your DL when purchasing OTC cold medicine rather than requiring a trip to the Doc for a prescription. This is what most states did. If I bought 50 packs of 36 in a week then it would be apparent I didn’t have a head cold or seasonal allergy.

Kingfish said...

Because some people like to have control and expand the power of government.

EXACTLY! I'll keep saying it, isn't amazing how Rankin S.O. are miraculously discovering these big shipments of dope?

Whoever is having this dope brought in is reporting it, then getting it at discount prices from Rankin S.O. It's free money, so why not.

But you keep playing these kinds of games with the wrong people - they are not going to care where you live, who you work for, you playing with their money.

They should've kept it in the trunk, and not given consent to the police officers. While they only needed probable cause to search the car's interior, they would've needed a warrant to search the trunk...

Anonymous said...

The real shame of handicapping meth production in Mississippi by requiring prescriptions is economic. The production dollars are flowing into Mexico rather than staying local to buy cigarettes, beer and a new trailer. We only get further behind.....

Confused said...

So when does I55 go thru Rankin County?

Anonymous said...

1:27. I’m afraid your U Tube law degree doesn’t apply in this situation. Am I fee to go, I don’t consent to any searches.

Google Earth Addict said...

@6:40. Actually, from the moment 55/20 crosses the Pearl River heading Eastbound, splits at the Stack and 55 crosses the Pearl again heading Northbound there is about 1.15 miles of I-55 in Rankin County, split between Richland and Flowood city limits.

Jimmy Taylor said...

The cops with the plate readers sit right there at the stack, in the Rankin County part---I see them all the time.



Be Safe

so, has no one questioned why the Brandon Police Dept or Madison, the City, Police Department responded and were part of the investigation into a traffic stop on I-55 in Rankin County initiated by a Rankin County Sheriff's department deputy?

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.

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.
