On Friday, December 24, 2010, George County Sheriff’s Deputies conducted a traffic stop on Forest Hill Dr in the Barton Community which led to the arrest of Arthur Christopher Ignatz, Jr (21) and Casey Clay Vaughn (19) both of George County. Deputies discovered what appeared to be precursor chemicals inside the vehicle which are used to manufacture methamphetamine. As a result of the investigation deputies charged Ignatz with DUI and Vaughn with possession of precursor chemicals with intent to manufacture methamphetamine. Both Ignatz and Vaughn were transported to the George County Regional Jail where they are awaiting an appearance in George County Justice Court.
