 MOOREVILLE, Miss (WTVA)--Residents of Mooreville are reacting to that kidnapping incident in Mooreville.

 Lee County Sheriff Jim Johnson Corey Caroll forces his way into a home in Mooreville

 Monday evening and locked all of the doors inside.

  He held an elderly woman, her daughter, and a young girl until of of the three could finally get a call out to 9-1-1.

 At least one resident we talked to is shocked that it happened but says drugs are common in the area.

  "It’s bad. But it’s sad to say that's what all goes on around here .It’s all just drug activity. “Have you ever heard of Flakka?" we asked. “I’ve heard of it occasionally. I have never seen it .But I've heard it’s a lot like meth. But worse. “Hope Mills of Mooreville replied.

  Sheriff Johnson says that Caroll could face up to five felony charges for the break-in.
