Multi-Agency Operation Leads to Significant Methamphetamine Bust in Blytheville

BLYTHEVILLE, Ark. – A coordinated operation involving several law enforcement agencies led to a major drug bust and the arrest of a local resident on August 11 in Mississippi County.

After receiving alerts regarding a suspicious package from both the Arkansas State Police and the Shelby County, Tennessee Sheriff’s Department, agents of the 2nd Judicial District Drug Task Force (2nd DTF) discovered approximately 7.62 pounds of methamphetamine inside the parcel. In collaboration with officers from the Blytheville Police Department (BPD), the Osceola Police Department (OPD), and the Mississippi County Sheriff’s Department (MCSD), a strategic plan was crafted to ensure the safe delivery of the package and to subsequently execute a search warrant.

The delivery operation was executed at 914 McGruder Lane, Apartment A. Following the successful delivery and subsequent search, law enforcement agents uncovered not only the large quantity of methamphetamine, but also fentanyl pills, multiple items related to drug use and distribution, as well as a loaded handgun within the premises.

Marshalla Woods, a 45-year-old Blytheville resident, was arrested in the aftermath of the operation.

This significant seizure underscores the ongoing efforts of law enforcement agencies to curb the drug trade and its associated criminal activities in the area.
