Two individuals were arrested on separate felony drug charges last week.

A Leake County man, Micah Stewart, 29, 3493 Jordan Street, Carthage, was arrested Thursday and charged with felony possession of marijuana.




According to Neshoba County Sheriff Tommy Waddell, deputies responded to a call of a suspicious vehicle in the Bond community off of Road 759.

When deputies arrived, they observed the strong odor of marijuana coming from Stewart and the vehicle. Deputies later located several buds of what Waddell called high-grade marijuana in a small draw-string bag.

The Sheriff’s Department also arrested Memory Beckham, 39, of 4126 Calhoun Rd., Saturday for possession of methamphetamine. Waddell said that Beckham was arrested on outstanding warrants and a search following her arrest turned up 6.8 grams of methamphetamine in her purse.

In other cases:

• A burglary was reported Thursday at a residence on Highway 492. According to the report, entry was gained to the home via the backdoor. The victim reported that change and a pair of diamond earrings were missing.

• Friday, a burglary of an automobile was reported on Road 383. According to the victim, a Glock pistol was taken.
