In a unique set of circumstances, two Mississippi men were arrested at the Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office Thursday at 11 a.m.
One of the men was in the front lobby of the Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office seeking to pick up four items. However, the odor of marijuana emitting from his person alerted deputies to more than just his intended purpose at the office. When a deputy asked Willie B. Williams, Jr, 36, of Sardis Mississippi, about the odor, he said he had smoked marijuana the day before. Williams was not arrested at that time but detained. An jailer alerted deputies and Investigator Wade Sheets that as she walked by the vehicle Williams had driven to the location, Lakendrick Dantrelle Roberts, 32, of Sledge Mississippi, also had a strong odor of marijuana. A probable cause search of the vehicle located THC wax and THC oil in the center console of the vehicle.
Both Williams and Roberts were arrested for Possession of a Controlled Substance Penalty Group 2, more than 4-grams but less than 400-grams. Williams was also arrested for Possession of a Controlled Substance Penalty Group 2, less than 1-gram. Williams is held on bonds totaling $30,000. Roberts is held on a $25,000 bond.
