Jennings County authorities arrested three people on methamphetamine-related charges last week as part of the county’s crackdown on dangerous drugs.

Thursday morning, deputies with the Jennings County Sheriff’s Department and federal parole officers raided a home on Road 675N. The homeowner, 65-year-old George Nichols and 58-year-old Judy Nichols were taken into custody after a large amount of methamphetamine were found in the home, along with cash.

They are both facing preliminary charges of possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia and visiting or maintaining a common nuisance. George Nichols was already on federal parole.
