A Crime Stoppers tip led to two drug arrests Thursday night according to Sheriff Lance Humphreys. The tip came a week earlier and the caller did not ask for a cash reward.
“The caller said there was a guy selling dope, both out of his house and making deliveries across the county,” Humphreys said. The call came in last Thursday, August 16.
A sting operation was set up, with deputies, Water Valley Police officers and the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics (MBN).
Using undercover informants from the MBN, Humphreys said they were able to make three narcotic purchases at the house on Martin Street in Water Valley.
“We used buy money and surveillance equipment from the sheriff’s department and undercover informants from MBN,” Humphreys said. “It was truly a joint operation.”
Arrested were Andrew Hickey, 34, whose address is listed as Martin Street in Water Valley and Cindy Hickman, a.k.a. Cindy Hervey.
They each face a count for sale of a controlled substance.
