A Lee County man wanted for possession of precursors with intent to manufacture methamphetamine and felony fleeing was apprehended in an adjoining county Wednesday, after eluding state and local narcotics agents for four months, according to a Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics official.
MBN Director Marshall Fisher said agents, acting on a tip, located 32-year-old Jason Scott Galloway of Shannon at a friend’s Houlka residence in Chickasaw County.
The ensuing consensual search of the friend’s residence turned up a small amount of methamphetamine along with meth precursor chemicals. As a result, agents charged Galloway with possession of methamphetamine and possession of two or more precursors with intent to manufacture methamphetamine.
Galloway was transported to the Chickasaw County Jail, where he was awaiting an initial court appearance.
Participating in the investigation were the MBN, North Mississippi Narcotics Unit and Chickasaw County Sheriff’s Office.
