At about 9:30 yesterday morning Michael Parker 26, 40 Ironwood Drive, was stopped for a traffic violation near the intersection of Highways 27 & 80. A subsequent check of his drivers license revealed that his license was suspended. Constable Glenn McKay heard the radio traffic and advised deputies to detain the subject as he had outstanding warrants from Justice Court for contempt of court. These warrants resulted from payment arrangements on fines not being honored. A subsequent search of the vehicle revealed about 20 Hydrocodone tablets. Parker was then charged with possession of hydrocodone – which due to the amount in question is a misdemeanor. While being booked into The Warren County Jail, a detention officer discovered a small amount of crack cocaine on Parker’s person. He was subsequently charged with possession of crack cocaine as well. He will make a court appearance later today to answer to the charges levied against him. In relation to the drug interdiction efforts referenced in the VPD Crime Report, Sheriff Pace wanted to stress that the Adcock case emphasizes the severity of the methamphetamine problem in our society. Meth labs are extremely dangerous and the chemicals used to manufacture the drug are, more often than not, extremely flammable and inherently unstable. Law enforcement officers are trained in methods to protect themselves and the public when they encounter these manufacturing operations. The “shake and bake” meth lab, which is a very portable operation, is becoming a more common occurrence. These labs are usually located in the rear of a vehicle and are extremely volatile. Imagine traveling to dinner with your family and pulling up next to one of these vehicles at a red light. Sheriff Pace encourages the public to call the Warren County Sheriff’s Office or the Vicksburg Police Department to report any activity that you believe might be related to the manufacture or distribution of methamphetamines, or any other controlled substances.]]]]> ]]>
