Fifty-year-old Rienzi resident Wilma Huggins Robertson was apprehended by Tishomingo County Sheriff’s deputies last week.
The arrest was made after deputies responded to suspicious activity in the parking lot of a volunteer fire department. A search by law enforcement found a large amount of methamphetamine on Robertson’s person. They also discovered marijuana and paraphernalia in Robertson’s vehicle.
Robertson was officially charged with felony possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) with intent to sell within 1,500 feet of a church.
She is currently being held in the Tishomingo County Jail waiting bond to be set for Justice Court.
Robertson’s address is listed as 47 County Road 447 in Rienzi.
Tishomingo deputies also arrested a Iuka man. He faces drug charges, as well.
Forty-two-year-old Carey Dillard was detained by law enforcement during a traffic stop on Aug. 2 on Pike Street in Iuka. Deputies noted the driver of the vehicle had failed to stop at a stop sign resulting in the traffic stop.
After learning no one inside the vehicle had a driver’s license, deputies searched the vehicle.
They discovered Dillard, the passenger, was sitting on two bags of methamphetamine.
Dillard, of 110 County Road 995 in Iuka, was arrested and charged with felony possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine). Dillard remains in custody at the Tishomingo County Jail awaiting bond.
