WATER VALLEY – Police Chief Jason Mangrum extended gratitude to his officers and county deputies for a great job during the Water Valley Christmas parade Friday night. Mangrum reported the parade was trouble free and widely reported as the biggest in recent memory.
“We had a few minor incidents that were quickly resolved,” the chief noted.
In other law enforcement news, Mangrum reported:
• Clardis Edward Galloway of Water Valley was arrested for possession of methamphetamine on Dec. 6 at Sayle Oil Company’s convenience store on Frostland Drive. Officers and deputies with the Yalobusha County Sheriff’s Department observed Galloway, age 47, pull into the parking lot. He was taken into custody due to an outstanding warrant. During the arrest he admitted to having narcotics in his vehicle.
