(WMC-TV) - A five-month investigation into illegal "walk up" drug sales in Millington has resulted in dozens of indictments, authorities said Thursday.
Earlier this year, Millington police received complaints about walk up drug activity at several Millington businesses. What business owners didn't know is that for the past five months, undercover officers have been some of those customers.
The desk clerk at the Regency Inn had just clocked in and was watching Action News 5 at noon when she realized her boss had been arrested.
"That's why I've turned the news on," she said.
According to Millington Police Chief Ray Douglas, detectives made covert drug purchases at five Millington businesses, including the Regency Inn.
"There was some marijuana, cocaine, crack cocaine, prescription narcotics," said Douglas.
The investigation resulted in 65 indictments against 14 people charged with selling illegal and drugs.
