A Neshoba County traffic stop resulted in two arrests Monday night.
Sheriff Eric Clark said about 13.7 grams of methamphetamine and 56 grams of marijuana were recovered in the stop on County Road 149 in the Pearl River community.
Deputies arrested Jerithan Willis and Jason Reed. According to Sheriff Clark, Willis was initially arrested on an active warrant from the city of Philadelphia and charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana-first offense. Reed is charged with possession of paraphernalia.
Clark said Investigator Kenny Spencer saw a clear baggie hidden under Willis’ leg.
“Once he was removed from the car, five clear baggies were recovered containing a substance believed to be methamphetamine. Over $1,100 in cash were found in his pocket. A bag on the passenger floor contained a set of digital scales, two bags of marijuana and a clear jar containing marijuana. Willis’s ID and credit cards were also inside the bag,” said Sheriff Clark.
