JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - A Texas man, his truck and camper trailer are all parked in Jackson County after Narcotics Task Force agents say they found a marijuana growing operation inside.

Jeremy Rushmichael Hicks, 38, of Bruceville, Texas was pulled over near the 68 mile marker for reckless driving and expired tags. Officers checked his driver's license and found not only was it suspended, but Hicks was wanted in Florida for disorderly conduct and public drunkenness.

Agents said a search of the travel trailer revealed several hydroponic marijuana grow rooms inside. Three live plants, a small amount of marijuana, the truck, the trailer and $1,700 were all seized.

Hicks is charged with one count of Cultivation of Marijuana. He's being held at the Adult Detention Center in Pascagoula.
