HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) - Two Hattiesburg men - one a trauma surgeon at Forrest General Hospital - have been arrested drug-related charges.

Authorities say 63-year-old Dr. George McGee and 42-year-old Russell Golemon were arrested Thursday by the 12th Judicial Circuit Court Narcotics Enforcement unit.

Forrest County Sheriff’s Department investigator Nick Calico tells The Hattiesburg American (https://hatne.ws/1sSGVD8) the task force was called to assist the Drug Enforcement Administration in serving a search warrant.

DEA agent Terry Davis said a gun also was found in the home.

Calico said McGee and Golemon were charged with sale of a controlled substance-ecstasy and possession of a controlled substance-methamphetamine while in possession of a firearm and misdemeanor possession of marijuana charges.

Online jail records do not list attorneys for the two men.
