Investigators said they went looking for stolen guns at a George County home and found meth instead.

The search at Friday night at a home on Agee’s Lane in the Shipman community led to the arrests of a parolee, his brother and a woman, Sheriff Keith Havard said.

Arrested on a meth possession charge were brothers Matthew Tyler Shows, 24, and Zachary Mark Shows, 26, both of Satsuma, Alabama; and Desaray Alexis Reed, 24, of George County.

Havard said the search was a joint investigation of his office, the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics and the Mobile Police Department.

The amount of meth has a street value of about $400, Havard said.

Shows was on parole on a conviction in Clarke County, Alabama, he said.

Reed was released from jail on bond.

The brothers remained in custody Monday, Havard said.
