GEORGE COUNTY, Miss.- Two men were arrested after suspicious evidence led police to believe the guys were making meth.
Sherriff Dean Howell told WTVA, the deputies saw a light coming from inside a shed at a home in Lucedale. When they got closer they saw a flashlight go on. Once the deputies yelled for the men to come out, John Quincy Pace, 37, claimed he lived there. Henry Maurice Pace, 50, of Mobile, Alabama was the man in the shed.
The George County deputies said they could see inside the shed and noticed a clear plastic bag on a table containing a white substance. Next to the bag was a pipe, they also found a gun and several precursors used to make meth.
Henry Pace was arrested and charged with Possession of Precursors with Intent to Manufacture, Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon, and an Enhanced Penalty for the Possession of a Firearm while in the Process of Committing the Crime of Possession of a Controlled Substance. He’s being held in the George County Regional Jail.
John Pace was charged with Possession of Precursors with Intent to Manufacture and an outstanding warrant for failure to pay old fines. He has since made bond.
The Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics is continuing to investigate this case.
