Union Police Department Conducts Traffic StopsLeading to Felony Arrests




On Sunday night, May 19, 2024, officers from the City of Union Police Department executed two successful traffic stops, resulting in multiple arrests and the seizure of dangerous drugs.


At approximately 9:00 PM, Officer Joshua Grimes and Investigator Tony Stevens conducted a traffic stop on a motorcycle on Conehatta Road inside the city limits of Union. The operator of the vehicle was found to be driving with a suspended license. A subsequent search of the vehicle revealed approximately 1 gram of crystal methamphetamine and assorted drug paraphernalia. The individual was subsequently arrested and transported to Neshoba County Detention Center.


Charges include Driving with a Suspended License, Felony Possession of a

Controlled Substance, and Possession of Paraphernalia, as well as an outstanding warrant from Neshoba County. Approximately three hours later, at around midnight, Officer Grimes and Investigator Stevens conducted a second traffic stop near the intersection of Highways 15 and 492. The driver of a pickup truck was also found to be driving with a suspended license. A search of the vehicle led to the recovery of two syringes, one containing a prepared dose of liquified methamphetamine. The driver was arrested

and transported to Newton County Detention Center on charges of Driving with a Suspended License, Felony Possession of a Controlled Substance, and Possession of Paraphernalia.


Additionally, a hold was placed on the second driver at the request of the

Neshoba County Sheriff's Office due to an outstanding warrant for the alleged Rape of a Special Needs Child. Given the sensitive nature of these charges and the ongoing investigation, the identities of the individuals involved are not being released at this time.
