GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - Harrison County Sheriff Melvin Brisolara says a traffic stop led to a couple's arrest on charges alleging they had chemicals used to manufacture meth at their Gulfport home.
Brisolara tells The Sun Herald that officers stopped 49-year-old Nathan Eno Byrd Tuesday and found a half-gram of meth and 20 tablets of pseudoephedrine.
Brisolara said investigators obtained a search warrant for Byrd's home and found several precursor chemicals, drug paraphernalia and a small amount of meth.
Officers arrested Byrd and 45-year-old Mitza Campbell McGraw on a precursor charge. They also charged Byrd with possession of meth.
Justice Court Judge Gene Dedeaux set bonds at $65,000 for Byrd and $25,000 for McGraw.
It was not immediately known whether Byrd and McGraw have attorneys.
