Another arrest was made shortly after the drug bust after officers saw a vehicle leaving the residence as they arrived. A traffic stop of the vehicle revealed that the driver, Christopher Dueitt, 26, of Greenville, had an outstanding warrant out of Jackson County, Miss., for grand larceny. He was arrested and transported to the Butler County Jail where he was held for Jackson County.
Greenville Police Chief Lonzo Ingram said the bust was a joint effort between the Greenville Police Department and the DTF and that he appreciates the hard work of all those involved.
