The Harrison County Sheriff’s Office Emergency Response Team along with Marshall Police Department made a significant drug bust Tuesday evening, resulting in the arrest of several individuals.
“The Harrison County Sheriff’s Office ERT Team and Sheriff Tom McCool along with members of the Marshall Police Department’s ERT team and Chief Cliff Carruth served a search warrant at 806 Cook St. in Marshall, at approximately 6:30 p.m. Tuesday,” HCSO Chief Deputy Brandon Fletcher indicated in a news release.
Fletcher said the HCSO ERT Team along with one PD ERT officer made entry into the residence while other MPD and HCSO ERT members held the outside perimeter of the residence.
“The house was known as a drug location and was known to have weapons,” he said.
Upon entry of the residence, one person jumped through the rear bedroom window.
“When the entry team made it to this room they confronted two more subjects,” said Fletcher. “One of the subjects was throwing bags of drugs out of the broken window and would not follow commands or show his hands to the officers. One of the Harrison County Sheriff’s Office ERT Team members began to struggle with the suspect.”
The actions of the suspect and him resisting the arrest caused ERT member’s firearm to discharge, Fletcher advised.
“The projectile grazed the subject’s shoulder and was later located in the wall,” he said. “The subject was taken to the Marshall ER (Christus Good Shepherd Medical Center — Marshall) where he was treated and medically cleared.”
He, along with five other individuals, were booked into the Harrison County Jail on multiple charges.
“Three loaded firearms and large amount of what is believed to be crack cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin, marijuana, Xanax and ecstasy were recovered at the ... residence,” said Fletcher.
Six arrests were made at the location, including: Dontrell Jamall Anderson, 25, of Marshall; Ivan Lynn Daniels, 24, of Marshall; Michael Wayne Murry, 48, of Marshall; Eddie Lee House III, 26, of Marshall; Lanica Madella Williams, 51, of Marshall; and Robert Louis Price III, 25, of Longview.
The list of charges from this incident are: possession of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance PG 4-400G, possession of marijuana<2oz, and unlawful poss of a firearm by a felon.
Due to the discharge of a firearm at the scene, Fletcher notified Texas Ranger Josh Jenkins, who came to the scene to investigate the incident.
“We are glad to have these guns, drugs and drug dealers off of our streets,” said Fletcher. “Agencies that work together have safer communities.
“The working relationship between the Harrison County Sheriff’s Office and the Marshall Police Department is stronger than ever,” he said.
