Traffic Stop Leads to Arrest in Decatur

An arrest was made in Decatur after officers allegedly discovered precursors for the manufacture of methamphetamine in a motor home.

Officials say the Newton County Sheriff’s Department stopped a 1985 Toyota motor home for a traffic violation on Garrison Road Tuesday evening.

Officers say the search of the camper turned up sodium hydroxide, ammonium nitrate, lithium batteries, camp fuel, plastic tubing and other items commonly associated with meth manufacturing.

39-year-old Edward Holmes of Decatur was charged with possession of precursor chemicals with intent to manufacture methamphetamine.

The Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics assisted the Newton County Sheriff’s Department in the investigation.
