HAZLEHURST, MS (WLBT) - A Hazlehurst Middle School janitor is behind bars for drug possession.
Sam Jefferson is being held at the Copiah County Jail. Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics Director Marshall Fisher says investigators found two and a half pounds of marijuana, some liquor and a bullet in Jefferson's vehicle. He has been charged with drug possession with intent to distribute. That penalty doubles because the drugs were found on school grounds.
Fisher says investigators received prior intelligence Jefferson was selling the marijuana to students.
