GEORGE COUNTY -- Sheriff’s officials are searching for a man after a narcotics investigation Wednesday led to the seizure of $15,000 worth of methamphetamine.
Sheriff Keith Havard said sheriff’s investigators, along with agents from the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics, found three-quarters of a pound of meth, commonly known as ice, in a house in the 100 block of Bradley Road in the Benndale community.
The ice has a street value of $15,000, Havard said.
