Lee County  confiscates largest quanity of meth in  county’s history

Edward G. Glass

On Friday, Oct. 18, the U.S. Marshals and Lee County Sheriff’s Department served an arrest warrant for Edward Glenn Glass at 455 County Road 1199, Plantersville.

“We can tell you Glass was on probation (MDOC) and being sought by the Lee County Circuit Court drug court,” Lee County Sheriff Jim Johnson said. “He had not complied with the conditions of that court.”

Glass had been wanted for a drug court violation since 2015. Lee County Sheriff’s Department/North Mississippi Narcotics Unit then executed a search warrant.

During the search of the residence, agents discovered a large amount of methamphetamine and twelve firearms inside the residence.

Seizures included approximately 10 pounds of methamphetamine, 12 firearms, several knifes, cash and a bullet-proof vest.

“To tell you the quanity or number of pounds this is — I’ve been doing this for 38 years and this is the largest crystal methamphetamine seizure I’ve seen in Lee County,” Johnson said. “So this was a great bust.”

Methamphetamine is a powerful, highly addictive stimulant that affects the central nervous system. Also known as meth, blue, ice, and crystal, among many other terms, it takes the form of a white, odorless, bitter-tasting crystalline powder that easily dissolves in water or alcohol.

Glass, 44, was charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, methamphetamine (aggravated trafficking), and possession of a firearm by a prior convicted felon.

“This was the work of the community and law enforcement working together to get this individual off the streets,” Johnson said.

During the investigation, agents had received information from multiple sources, in the past several months, that illegal drug activity was taking place at the aforementioned residence.

The investigation is ongoing.

Lee County Justice Court Judge Chuck Hopkins set Glass a bond of 2-million dollars.

Glass has been arrested in the past, all charges were related to drugs.
