The wife of a Pickens County judge faces drug related charges in Columbus, Miss., following her arrest Saturday night.
Police said they followed 42-year-old Christy Dawn Wheat Colvin while she allegedly shopped for items used to manufacture methamphetamine.
She was stopped on U.S. Highway 82 and officers said a drug dog found a small amount of meth in the vehicle she was driving. Colvin was also charged with driving with an expired tag.
Police Corporal Donnie Elkins said officers were tipped off that a woman had stopped at several stores in Columbus trying to purchase cold medicines. The product contains ingredients used to make the illegal drug.
Christy Colvin was released on bail. She is married to District Judge Ira Colvin.
