BENNDALE, MS -- George County sheriff's deputies arrested Rusty Bone, 42, near his home at 113 Holly Drive in the Pascagoula River Estates subdivision near Benndale.
On Wednesday at approximately 5 p.m., Bone was charged with manufacturing marijuana and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute after authorities executed two search warrants on two adjacent residences occupied by Bone.
The raid was conducted by a joint force of officers from the George County Sheriff's Department, the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics, the South Mississippi Narcotics Task Force, the Jackson County Narcotics Task Force and the Mississippi National Guard Counter Drug Unit.
Neighbors were surprised.
"He moved here about four or five years ago. He was very low profile. We had no idea that was going on," said Connie Carlson, a neighbor. "He seemed like a nice person. It is really sad that the little boy had to see his daddy arrested."
