Man charged after disturbance


A Neshoba County man was arrested and charged after he was found with meth when Neshoba County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a disturbance call last week. 

The man, Matthew A. Tubby, 42, 150 Pine Ridge Road, was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance, disturbing the peace, and possession of paraphernalia.

Tubby remains in the Neshoba County Detention Center on a $8,700 in bond, according to jail records.

Law enforcement encountered Tubby while responding to a disturbance call on Road 557 on March 21, at 9:25 a.m., according to Neshoba County Sheriff Eric Clark.

The initial call said a man had a knife and was threatening the people at the residence and threatening to destroy property, Clark said.

Upon arrival on the scene, deputies encountered Tubby sitting in a gray Chevy truck parked at the residence on Road 557. Clark said deputies reported he smelled of booze and after removing Tubby from the truck found the knife he had been holding and several bottles of alcohol inside.

A further search of the vehicle found drug paraphernalia including electronic scales in the vehicle. A pat down of Tubby revealed two bags of methamphetamine in his pockets.

The homeowners said they knew Tubby and they were friends with his parents.
