Multiple arrests have been made after a $1 million drug bust along the Gulf Coast.
Aaron Whavers, 51, with over 51 pounds of meth, two pounds of heroin, $30,000 in cash and a pistol at his home in Pass Christian, Mississippi. Authorities also seized an additional 63 pounds of meth on a tractor tractor at a Love’s Truck Stop, which led to the arrests of Gerald Jones, 64, of Mobile, Alabama, and Sharard Collier, 43, of Inglewood, California.
The three are believed to be connected to a drug trafficking organization functioning through a trucking company. They are being held without bond on a federal charge of conspiracy to distribute meth. The operation was conducted by the FBI Safe Streets Task Force in Pascagoula, Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics, Harrison County Coastal Narcotics Enforcement Team, Harrison and Jackson County sheriff’s offices, South Mississippi Metro Enforcement Team in Pascagoula and the U.S. Border Patrol.
If convicted, all three are facing a maximum sentence of life in prison.
