Cops arrest 3 after apparent drug deal

Posted: Updated:
HINDS COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Three people are in custody following what Hinds County sheriff's deputies are calling a drug deal gone bad.

It ended at about 5:15 Tuesday evening near the Wynndale Road exit off Interstate 55 north of Terry, where the men's car was surrounded by nearly a dozen law-enforcement vehicles with their lights flashing.

Sheriff's department spokesman Jeffery Scott says it appears the three men were meeting up with a teenager to complete a drug deal at a store on Wynndale Road. The trio allegedly stole something from the teen, and then took off.

Officers caught up with them and took all three into custody. They are charged with possession of methamphetamine. Lieutenant Scott says more charges are likely.
