Rankin Busts Meth Bus

 Rankin County Sheriff Bryan Bailey issued the following statement.  

 On Saturday afternoon October 16, 2021, Rankin County Criminal Interdiction Deputy Johnson conducted a traffic stop on a passenger bus on Interstate 20 for a traffic violation.

During the traffic stop the deputy began to suspect the vehicle was possibly transporting drugs and/or contraband. A consensual search of the vehicle revealed over 36 pounds of methamphetamine hidden in false compartments made into the vehicle.

The driver, Saul Mota RODRIGUEZ and the passenger/co-driver, Miguel Angel REYES GARCIA, were both placed under arrest for aggravated trafficking of methamphetamine and transported to the Rankin County Jail. District Attorney John “Bubba” Bramlett will bring both suspects before Rankin County Court Judge David Morrow for an initial appearance. No Bond has been set at this time.

            Brandon Police Department, Madison Police Department and The Office of Homeland Security assisted with the traffic stop and investigation.

Two Mexican nationals on a cartel bus. Thanks, Joe!

And we thought all these 300-thousand dollar rigs were heading to Alabama football games and the amphi-theater.

No, Luther...they are indeed 'sending their best'.

Great - so we'll be paying for their board and keep for the next 20 years.

Someone with connections now gets a nice RV? Or it there a auction, open to all? Confiscation funds Rankin and Madison LE well.

His middle name is "Mota." Mota translates to "weed" in English, but is Mexican Spanish slang for marijuana. Go figure.

I wonder how this illegal bought a $300,000 vehicle? A PPP grant from LGB?

Legalize weed and this stuff will cut in half. I would bet my bottom dollar one or both of these guys are US citizens.

But the other loads made it through though. They don’t just send one load at a time, that’s basic cartel smuggling 101.

1. They weren’t hauling weed.
2. They’re both Mexican nationals. Rankin SO’s Facebook post stated this… not sure why it’s not stated here.

There were two of these traveling together. I saw them being stopped. There were at least six other charter buses scattered a few miles behind as well. Remarkable coincidence.

Biden has literally no connection to two Mexican dudes caught in Rankin County for trafficking. Bit of a stretch folks

@1:51p- I hope you’re not serious.

You obviously have ZERO clue about how many folks are pouring in. No, they aren’t turning them away. No, they aren’t sending them all back. Only a tiny, tiny percent of people are being put back on planes.

There was for a while a red zone over the most problematic border area. It was removed in the last week or so. It’s now actually wide open! Who do we blame if we don’t blame the top policy maker who revoked all the policies put in place to stop the influx and implemented horrific policies that allowed the influx? Ironically, he’s about to reimplement Trump’s Stay in Mexico policy… because his own policy has FAILED!!

There are resources to educate yourself on the reality of the folks that have been allowed in AND the ones being BROUGHT in. You should also educate yourself on the growth of the cartels’ power since your pal Biden took office.

Cue Biden-Cartel conspiracies

@3:45p- Just because you don’t want to accept the truth that Biden’s policies have fostered cartel growth, doesn’t make the truth a conspiracy.

I’m impressed how many immigration policy experts and cartel experts there are in Mississippi

Anonymous said...

@5:51p- No commenters have claimed to be experts of either.

Since you obviously think their words aren’t true, please point out to us A SINGLE COMMENT that is not factual.

5;51 pm Almost as many medical experts!

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.
