Vicksburg meth suspects arrested at Carthage motel

Posted: Updated:

CARTHAGE, MS (WLBT) - Two Vicksburg residents were arrested at a Carthage motel on charges related to meth-making.

MBN officers, acting on a tip, went to a room at Carthage Inn, where they found meth precursors, including pseudoephedrine pills, fertilizer, lye, drain cleaner, lithium batteries, starter fluid and camp fuel. They also discovered a .22-caliber rifle.

One suspect, 39-year-old Jonathan Wayne Jolly, had been under investigation for about a month.

Jolly and 27-year-old Kathryn Michelle Tuggle were charged with possession of precursors with intent to manufacture methamphetamine while in possession of a firearm and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Both were transported to the Leake County jail, where they were awaiting initial court appearances.

MBN, Leake County Sheriff's office and Carthage police department participated in the investigation.
