Hinds County Sheriff Victor Mason has announced a major drug bust conducted Monday night by Narcotics Unit investigators at 153 Fredrica Drive in Jackson.
While executing a search warrant, investigators seized 100 dosage units of MDMA (Ecstasy) and 1.012 pounds (459 grams) of crystal methamphetamine (ICE).
The meth seized in the operation has an estimated street value in excess of $45,000.
Michael Kelly of Jackson was arrested at the scene and charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute while in possession of a firearm and possession of MDMA with intent to distribute while in possession of a firearm.
Because Fredrica Drive is within 1500 feet of a church, both charges will be enhanced.
Sheriff Mason noted the investigation is ongoing. He urged anyone with information regarding this case, or any other illegal drug activity, to call 601-974-2900.
