Bust Made in Meridian Subdivision

Drug-related arrests were made Monday afternoon in a Meridian neighborhood.

The East Mississippi Drug Task Force and the Meridian SWAT Team executed a search warrant at 5831 40th Court, in Woodview Estates.

Thaddeus Holmes, and his wife, Rose Holmes, have been charged with sale and possession of cocaine and marijuana.

Officials say that information from the public led to action being taken.

"Some calls have been received in my office in the last week or so concerning that particular house," said Maj. Steve Spears, commander of EMDTF. "Drugs being sold out of that house. So members of the drug task force conducted an operation which led to the search warrant today."

Spears said there could be more arrests made. He said others who were at the house are being questioned. However, as of early afternoon, no one else had been charged in relation to this case.

    Tired 2, Police chiefs don't okay warrants learn your legal rights. It is approved by the judges not police officers.

    They left out that Holmes is/was a prison guard at East Mississippi Correctional Facility and a member of the National Guard.

    I wonder who gave the OK to get a warrant to search the drug house? Oh my gosh! Our ex-Chief of Police. But he doesn't do anything does he?
