Deputies tracking dancing, naked man find meth lab instead

Posted: Updated:
GEORGE COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

A man dancing naked on the side of the road helped lead George County deputies to a working meth lab Sunday in the Ward community.

Around noon, the sheriff's department received a call about the man dancing along Ward Pineview Road. By the time deputies arrived, the man had disappeared into the woods. But deputies had a hunch who their naked suspect might be, so they headed south about half a mile toward a residence. That's where authorities said they found a metal toolbox which contained a working meth lab in the back yard.

"The owner of this lab probably didn't realize dancing naked on the side of the road may bring him some unwanted attention. If he is indeed who we think he is," Sheriff Dean Howell said.

Sheriff Howell said a hazardous materials cleanup crew was brought in to dismantle the meth lab.

Anyone with any information about the meth operation or the naked man should call Crime Stoppers at 1-877-787-5898 or the George County Sheriff's Office at (601) 947-4811.
