A pre-dawn drug raid on Thursday netted 13 arrests, Hancock County Sheriff Ricky Adam said.
Operation "Broken Heart" in reference to Valentine's Day, was a joint operation between the sheriff's office, the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics and the Bay St. Louis Police Department.
"This operation was a continuation of our battle on drugs in Hancock County," Adam said Thursday. "Everything went smooth and we want to thank the other agencies involved."
Adam said warrants were obtained for the subjects, who allegedly sold narcotics to undercover officers.
The drugs sold or possessed included marijuana, prescription pills, and methamphetamine, Adam said.
Arrested in the round up were:
*Verina Palmer, 25, of Kiln, two counts of sale of controlled substance:
*Tobias Collins, 19, of Bay St. Louis, sale of controlled substance:
*Robert Maurigi, 50, of Bay St. Louis, sale of controlled substance:
*Patrick Hall, 40, of Catahoula, sale of controlled substance
*Keith Walter Jr., 30, of Bay St. Louis:
*Jodie Barrilleaux, 30, of Kiln, sale of controlled substance:
*Jessica Bernard, 32, of Diamondhead, sale of controlled substance:
*Jerry Brewer, 61, of Kiln, three counts of sale of controlled substance:
*Betty Brewer, 58, of Kiln, sale of controlled substance:
*Rose Martin, 53, of Bayside, two counts of sale of controlled substance:
*Kelly Galloway, 34, of Bay St. Louis, sale of controlled substance:
*Angel Case, 45, of Diamondhead, possession of controlled substance: *Jonathan Jarvis, 24, of Pearlington, sale of controlled substance:
Two other suspects, Donna Vickers, 27, and Jesse Acker, 30, are also wanted in connection with the round up, Adam said.
All of the suspects arrested Thursday were booked at the Hancock County Public Safety Complex on Highway 90.
They are all being held under no bond pending an initial court appearance.
