Published 5:32 pm Friday, December 8, 2006

A Jackson County judge has revoked the bond of Vancleave businessman John Timothy Stringfellow after his arrest on charges of operating a methamphetamine lab at his home.

County Judge Larry Wilson on Tuesday initially set a $10,000 bond for Stringfellow. The judge revoked the bond because Stringfellow was already on bond for an August 2005 charge of possession of methamphetamine.

On Nov. 30, Jackson County Narcotics Task Force agents and sheriff’s deputies arrested Stringfellow at his home after saying they found the illegal lab.

Stringfellow is owner of Precision Homemakers in Vancleave.
