Man warns people to keep drugs out of his neighborhood

By  | 

TISHOMINGO, OK A Johnston County man posted a sign to warn people not to bring drugs into his community, after finding a pillow case full of drugs outside his mother's home.

"It was just an idea because there's no reason that anybody should be down this road period, unless they live down here."

A Tishomingo man says he was headed back to his mother's home on North Elks Road when he noticed a pillow case in the middle of the road.

"I was upset, you know we have kids that play out here and a lot of older folks live out here and they have grand kids that play and run up and down these roads and stuff."

"Scary,it made angry too," Donna Hargrove said.

Donna Hargrove lives on the same street and says her grandchildren always play outside.

Hargrove says, she specifically moved to this neighborhood to get away from all the drugs in town.

"It would be more peaceful and we were out here you know to ourselves," Hargrove said, " that would be scary if they picked that up, all it takes is a poke from a dirty needle."

The man who found the drugs tells us, he's a recovering drug addict.

He says it was hard to call police, but knew it was the right thing to do.

"I don't want anybody to get in trouble, I just want them to try to get their life straightened out as well."

The man says when police arrived they found meth, marijuana and drug paraphernalia inside.

As for the sign he posted...

"Maybe they see it and it scares them off next time, but you know, you never can tell."

Police are still investigating who those drugs belong to.
