A Jackson County man was arrested this week in the Ocean Springs Middle School parking lot, and charged with Manufacturing Methamphetamine within 1500 feet of a school.
Tuesday afternoon, Ocean Springs officers made a traffic stop in the school's parking lot on Hanshaw Road. The driver, 38-year-old Richard Adams Jr., was first arrested for a suspended license. But when officers searched the vehicle, they found several items used to make meth and distribute it.
The Narcotics Task Force of Jackson County was called in and confirmed what the officers suspected - Adams had begun the first few steps in the manufacturing process, according to police.
The charge of Manufacturing Methamphetamine within 1500 feet of a school normally carries a fine of up to $1 million and 30 years in prison. Police say this case calls for an enhancement of the fine to $2 million and 60 years.
Richard Adams Jr. went before Jackson County Court Judge Sharon Sigalas Wednesday morning where his bond was set at $50,000 for the Manufacturing charge.
