Four men were arrested for possession of precursors to methamphetamine in Poplarville said Chief Investigator Donnie Saucier.
Deputies with the Pearl River County Narcotics Division received anonymous tips on Aug. 7, that some Pearl River County residents were buying pseudoephedrine in Bogalusa for the purpose of manufacturing methamphetamine, he said.
Investigators, along with deputies, went to the an area near Mississippi Highway 26 bridge where it crosses into Louisiana and observed the suspects’ vehicle, Saucier said.
A traffic stop was initiated for a “broken tail light” and because the vehicle was “following another vehicle too closely,” the chief investigator said.
When deputies turned on their blue lights and attempted to make a traffic stop, two boxes were thrown out of the passenger-side window, he said.
