An extensive undercover narcotics investigation by the Crockett Police Department resulted in two arrests early Friday morning, May 17. CPD narcotics investigators and the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) conducted an investigation into the distribution of illegal narcotics for approximately two months, then obtained a search warrant for 401 East Bell Ave. Detective/Public Information Officer (PIO) Clayton Smith reported CPD, with assistance from the Houston County Sheriff's Office, executed the search warrant Friday morning and arrested two suspects at the house. A nearby resident reported the officers were protected by flak jackets and shields when they approached the house at about 7 - 7:30 a.m. Corey Deshuan Hubbard, 29, B/M of Crockett, was arrested and charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance (felony offense) and Possession of Marijuana (misdemeanor offense), according to Smith. Maceo Vinquay Mask, 27, B/M of Crockett, was arrested and charged with Possession of Firearm by a Felon and Obstruction or Retaliation. Both charges are felony offenses. CPD Chief David "Buddy" Cross stated, "We look forward to working with the Houston County Sheriff's Department to combat the drug problem in Crockett and Houston County. We also want to thank ETMC-EMS for their assistance during this raid."
