Arrested were Barbara Durrough, Katiaray Young, and Brianca Shanae Shaneka Durrough on drug charges, and Stephen Jajuan Jones and Paula Durrough on outstanding warrants.
Wampler said that at least three other individuals are being sought on Distribution of CDS charges as a result of this investigation. The search of the residence yielded a small amount of crack cocaine and about 1/2 lb. of marijuana packaged in small plastic baggies allegedly intended for distribution.
Barbara Durrough, 57, was charged with one count of distribution of CDS (crack cocaine) and one count of maintaining a dwelling where CDS is kept or sold; Katiaray Young, 18, was charged with one count of distribution of CDS (crack cocaine); Brianca Shanae Shaneka Durrough, 19, was charged with one count of possession with intent to distribute CDS (marijuana). Also arrested at the residence on outstanding warrants for failure to pay were Stephen Jajuan Jones, 20, and Paula Durrough, 43.
Wampler said, “These arrests are a continuation of the stepped-up effort begun several months ago to hit the street level drug dealers hard and bring them to justice.”
Fourteen individuals were arrested in Jackson County in January and five in June and Wampler said he expects there to be more arrests in the next few days as a result of this latest operation.
The District Three Drug Task Force, now in its 15th year of operation, received funding in June as part of the Byrne/JAG Federal Grant program and the Federal Economic Stimulus Plan that will guarantee funding for the next three years.
