In an alert posted to the Sheriff’s Facebook page, the Sheriff said:


MS-13, an International Criminal Gang and or Konvicted Family gang members are allegedly coming into Pike  County this weekend.

Possibly planning on “taking out” believed snitches and spread “HOTSHOTS” of heavily laced Heroin into the area that could cause an extremely large amount of overdoses in Pike County and surrounding counties.
