JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Three people are in jail after a meth lab bust in Warren county.

The Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics says 36-Year-Old Rocky Howard, 34-Year-Old Tracy Powell, and 29-Year-Old John Williamson were all arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine precursors, with intent to manufacture.

The arrests were made at a home on Jeff Davis road where Howard and Powell both live.

 During a search of the home, agents found pseudo ephedrine, which had been purchased over the counter in Louisiana and Arkansas.

The drug is a key ingredient in the production of meth, and can only be purchased in Mississippi with a prescription.
