HOUSTON – After eluding police for four months, a Lee County man wanted in connection with a drug case was caught in Chickasaw County on Wednesday.
Acting on a tip, law enforcement found Jason Scott Galloway, 32, of Shannon at a friend’s Houlka residence. Galloway was wanted for possession of precursors with intent to manufacture methamphetamine and felony fleeing.
According to the state Bureau of Narcotics, a search of the friend’s home turned up a small amount of methamphetamine along with meth precursor chemicals. Agents charged Galloway with possession of methamphetamine and possession of two or more precursors with intent to manufacture methamphetamine.
