Two Little Rock residents were charged earlier this month with felony drug possession.

Jerry Wayne Ward, 43, of 3769 County Line Road, Little Rock, and his wife, Summer Gale Ward, 35, were each charged with felony possession of crystal methamphetamine, Sheriff Tommy Waddell said.

"They were arrested after we acted on a tip of a suspicious vehicle in the House community on Road 4300," he said.

"Upon contacting the individuals we found crystal methamphetamine in their vehicle," Waddell said.

Jerry Ward remains in the Neshoba County Jail waiting to be picked up by the Mississippi Department of Corrections, the sheriff said, on a parole violation. Summer Ward has been released on $15,000 bond.

The case has been turned over to the grand jury, Waddell said.
