State authorities are searching for a Clay County man after seizing more than $10,000 worth of methamphetamine from his home.
State narcotics agents and Clay County officers found 106 grams of methamphetamine with an approximated street value of $10,620 when they executed a search warrant at the residence of Marcus Torell Starks, 36, of Pheba, according to a Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics press release. Starks fled when officers attempted to arrest him Thursday.
Starks is a suspect in an ongoing investigation which has been open 18 months, the press release said. He faces charges from the sale of methamphetamine to felony fleeing, MBN Director John Dowdy said in the press release.
