Drug Arrest

On Monday, June 20, 2011 agents with the George County Sheriff’s Department Narcotics Division conducted a traffic stop on Rigney Drive that led to the arrest of William Ray Darden (32) and Idice Ruth Darden (36) both of George County. A search of the 2003 Chevy truck occupied by the Darden’s revealed several precursor chemicals used to manufacture methamphetamine. Both were transported to George County Regional Jail and charged with possession of precursor chemicals with intent to manufacture methamphetamine. Justice Court Judge Norman C. Howell set both a $10,000 commercial bond.
