Union man back in jail on meth charges
A Union man is back in custody on meth charges after his release a few weeks ago in connection with stolen property last year, the authorities said.
Braxton Wayne Sullivan, 42, 10051 Road 337, Union, was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Sheriff Eric Clark said that the substance is believed to be crystal methamphetamine. He said that Sullivan was also cited for driving with a suspended license, careless driving and no proof of liabillity insurance.
Clark said that Sullivan was driving a Black Nissan Altima with a suspended driver’s license when a Sheriff’s deputy pulled him over on Road 248, late on Sunday evening.
Sullivan was found to possess drug paraphernalia and methamphetamine.
Braxton remains in jail on a $600 bond for the misdemeanor possession of paraphernalia and was denied bond on the controlled substance charge.
Clark said that Sullivan had just been released from custody recently on charges related to stolen tools in December.
Sullivan was arrested by the Jasper County Sheriff’s Department on Monday, Dec. 28 and was picked up by Neshoba County the following day.
The trailer full of tools and other construction equipment was taken from a fertilizer plant construction site in Noxubee County near Brooksville.
The 14-foot enclosed trailer was recovered hidden near a residence on Road 325 off of Highway 15 south in the Linwood community in Neshoba County.
