Itawamba authorities have arrested an Alabama man accused of trafficking more than $100,000 worth of illegal narcotics into Mississippi.
Deputies have charged Gregory Keith King, 32, of Hodges, Ala. with trafficking of a controlled substance enhanced due to the possession of a firearm. Itawamba law enforcement officials say King was arrested during an April 10 traffic stop on Highway 371 in Mantachie. During the stop, a K9 officer allegedly alerted to approximately 10 ounces of crystal methamphetamine, marijuana and prescription pills hidden in King’s vehicle. Deputies say they also found a firearm and large sum of cash.
King’s bond was set at $50,000. He is currently being held in the Itawamba County Jail.
Officials say the North Mississippi Narcotics Unit and Mantachie Police Department assisted with the arrest.
