The Alcorn County Sheriff’s Office made some methamphetamine-related arrests over the weekend, according to Sheriff Ben Caldwell.
Corinth resident Jarvis Bell, 37, was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance after the vehicle he was driving was stopped for allegedly having no license plate Saturday on County Road 217.
Alcorn County Deputy Bryon Parker turned on his blue lights to stop the vehicle, and a “large red bag was thrown from the sunroof of the vehicle,” a sheriff’s office news release said.
Parker picked up the bag as Bell’s vehicle came to a stop. Deputy Parker discovered that the red bag allegedly contained approximately 5.5 grams of meth, the news release added.
The meth possession charge was enhanced due to being within 1,500 feet of a church, according to the sheriff’s office.
Bell was transported to the Alcorn County Jail, and he was also wanted by the Alcorn County Circuit Court for allegedly failing to appear in court.
