Local Resident Receives Unexpected Package

 A Winston County Resident received an unexpected package over the weekend that prompted a call to law enforcement. A Fed Ex package arrived to the stated address but was a surprise to the occupant. Upon opening the package, the individual found 18 separate and securely wrapped packages containing a suspicious substance. 

Winston County Sheriff's deputies were called and it was determined that each package contained roughly one pound of marijuana. Deputies confiscated the drugs valued at roughly $20,000 at street value and an investigation is ongoing. The home's occupant is not a suspect.

Chief Deputy Keith Alexander indicated that drugs are often sent through the mail or package services to incorrect addresses with the intent of retrieving the package after delivery and warns local residents to be wary of unusual or unexpected deliveries.

Winston County On List for Mask Mandate

As you are all aware Covid has been an ongoing problem with rise and fall in new cases everyday. At one point the entire state was under mandated protective measures that of course has been lifted some time now. The task force in Jackson and the Governor have monitored the rise in certain areas and added those restrictions back on a county by county basis. Today Winston County has made that list. As a reminder that mandates all persons SHALL wear a mask in public unless eating or drinking or one of the other exceptions listed in Executive Order 1527(attached below) allows otherwise. This will also limit inside gatherings to 10 people outside to 50 people where social distancing is not possible. This restriction does not apply to religious entities, students in classroom or voting precincts. This Order does not change the way restaurants are currently operating they are governed by an earlier order. The new Executive Order is not available yet as soon as it is I will make it available.

Thank You
