Skies become unfriendly for druggie

Rankin County Sheriff Bryan Bailey issued the following statement.

 Rankin County Drug Interdiction Task Force/Airport Police Seize 
70 pounds of Hydroponic Marijuana at Airport

On Wednesday May 16th, 2018, at approximately 6:30 p.m., Rankin County Interdiction Deputies Chris Picou, Sentel Easterling and Ronnie Decell along with Rankin County Canines “Splinter”, “Wanese” and “Fox” were working a criminal interdiction operation at Jackson-Medgar Wiley Evers International Airport in partnership with Airport Police.

Deputies and canines were conducting “sniffs” of inbound luggage. All three canines alerted on three large suitcases. Rankin County Sheriff’s Investigator Brad Smith obtained a search warrant for the bags from Rankin County Justice Court Judge Josh McCrory. A search of the bags revealed approximately 70 pounds of hydroponic marijuana in vacuum sealed bags wrapped in clothing.

Rankin County Deputies along with Airport Police observed a male subject pick up two of the bags at baggage terminal. Officers moved in and arrested the male suspect. The suspect is identified as Mario Maurice GEORGE. GEORGE was arrested for trafficking of marijuana and was transported to the Rankin County Jail.

The retail value of the marijuana is approximately $300,000.00.

Mario Maurice GEORGE 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 marijuana is believed to have originated from Los Angeles and was intended to be delivered and distributed in the Jackson Metro Area.

This investigation continues and more arrests are expected.

Call me when Bailey busts some white boys for moving some major weight through Rankin County. Because only a fool will believe that Rankin County is drug-free; especially considering a total of 65 white people died from opioid overdoses last year in Mississippi. I'll pretty much guarantee that dope is going from the dark-skin drug dealers to the white ones at bargain discount prices.

does anyone know if the RCSO was tipped that this shipment was coming through or did they just happen to be there??

notice that the deputies in the photo are not smiling. had they grabbed the $300,000.00 rather than the 70 lbs, they would be grinning from ear to ear. the good ole war on drugs, where only the government is allowed to make money.

Catfish, thanks for noticing. That is, in fact, who I was trying to mimic.

Marijuana will be legal everywhere in the next 20 years. Waste of time and resources.

It came from California, where it is now legal to grow. Hydroponic gardens were popular when it was illegal because that is an indoor/stealthy method. Hydroponic growing is no longer necessary.

I learned this from a friend.

I Fly in and out of JAN on a regular basis and I have never seen the "DOGS" sniffing bags. Had to have been tipped off.

The three K-9s were on routine patrol and by coincidence ended up at the airport. All three just happened to be working the same shift - another coincidence.

I have some timber rights for sale.

In the US, the dogs sniff the luggage out of sight before it dumps out on the conveyor belt where you pick it up. I guess our society doesn't want the discomfort of seeing the dogs despite their detective and deterrent effect. If the dogs alert on a suitcase, the cops get into position to grab the guy who picks up the luggage.

In Mexico, the drug dogs sniff the carry-on luggage at the gate as arriving passengers leave the plane, plus the cargo luggage before it is released to the traveler. The Mexicans seem more serious than the US about the flow of recreational drugs into their country.

Think about that and compare it to relative illegal drug usage (not drug peddling) in both countries. Mexico has a much lower drug abuse rate than the US. Why?

So what's the best way to get this into the state without running afoul of the law?

For domestic flights K-9s sniff out of sight so suspects don't panic and leave the baggage area without their bags.

For U.S. international flights K-9s frequently mix in with the passengers who have already retrieved their luggage. They are also used out of sight of the intl. pax.

Mexico has a small middle class and therefore fewer people with disposable income to purchase drugs.

The rednecks in my Rankin County neighborhood could smoke a bong in the middle of the street and law enforcement wouldn't care. Everyone can smell their drugs. Every night, there is a different vehicle blocking the street as random people 'drop by to visit'. Neighbors have called to report, it always gets back to them who called on them. We're done being good citizens. Let somebody shoot them up when a deal goes bad. I honestly don't care if somebody enjoys a joint at home or somewhere that isn't bothering other people, but we can't even enjoy sitting outside because of the smell and noise from their 'guests'. So much for the sheriff's office and Reservoir patrol protecting our quality of life.

Thank you!

KF has made a few posts within the last couple of months about major drug busts in Rankin County? It makes you wonder, how are they constantly catching these people with little resources, but word of mouth?

Eventually, these major dealers will get tired of getting robbed for massive amounts of dope and that seems to be the case with whats going on in Rankin County. Crooked cops doing crooked stuff, it will catch up to them eventually.

Keep us posted KF

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.
