GEORGE COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Some odd lights at a home on Sumrall Lane led George County deputies to a wanted man, a felon with a firearm, and a bag of what officials believe is meth.

According to Sheriff Dean Howell, the deputies were on a routine patrol when they saw a light coming from inside a shed at a home on Sumrall Lane. As they got closer, they noticed a flashlight go on inside the otherwise dark home. The deputies yelled out for those inside to come out.

The man inside the house, John Quincy Pace, 37, said he lived there. Henry Maurice Pace, 50, from Mobile, Alabama was the man in the shed.

Deputies said they could see inside the shed and noticed a clear plastic bag on a table containing a white substance. Next to the bag was a pipe typically used to smoke Methamphetamine. They also found a gun, and several precursors used to make meth.

Henry Pace was arrested and charged with Possession of Precursors with Intent to Manufacture, Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon, and an Enhanced Penalty for the Possession of a Firearm while in the Process of Committing the Crime of Possession of a Controlled Substance. He's being held in the George County Regional Jail.

John Pace was charged with Possession of Precursors With Intent to Manufacture and an outstanding warrant for Failure to Pay old fines. He has since made bond.

The Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics is continuing the investigation. If you see suspicious activity and want to report it anonymously, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-877-787-5898.
