A search of a McClain man’s home turned up 11 pounds of meth in its purest form and more, Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics Director John Dowdy.

Marcus Ladell “Spud” Moody, 43, also had several weapons in his home and more than $2,200 in cash, Dowdy said.

Dowdy said the meth has an estimated street value of about $175,000.

The meth is ice, the smoke-able form of meth, and is meth in its purest form, he said.

Narcotics agents arrested Moody on a charge of aggravated trafficking of meth on Monday. He was taken to the Greene County jail.

Moody’s bond has been set at $100,000, but he is being held for federal marshals.

Dowdy said his agents were assisted in the investigation by the U.S. Postal Service, FBI Safe Streets Task Force, the Southeast Mississippi Narcotics Task Force and the George County Sheriff’s Department.
