Man Charged With Operating Meth Lab Arrested Again

A man charged with operating a meth lab just over a year ago has been arrested again on meth charges after lawmen say he ran from them and was tracked down by K-9's.

47-year-old John Miller of Tate Road in Pink Hill is charged with five meth related offenses and with resisting a public officer.

Jones County Deputies say they spotted Miller Monday night and knew he had outstanding warrants. That's when they say he drove away and then eventually exited his vehicle. A K-9 found him hiding in a ditch, partially submerged in water.

Deputies say they also found drug paraphernalia in the ditch and drugs in his car.

It was just over a year ago that Miller was charged with operating a Meth Lab on Mary Tate Road.

Miller is in the Jones County Detention Center with no bond.

    These comments/posting are so phoney! Another article stated that a black man was caught with drugs during a traffic stop and he's a scum bag. This guy cooked drug and he's a good hearty man...NOT! both are wrong! (A search of his vehicle turned up five plastic baggies containing marijuana in a glass jar inside of a computer case and a canister containing a white powdery substance.)

    I also know this man very well, he has a big heart, and would give the shirt off his back to anyone in need. Presently he is being controlled by a drug that has no mercy, or knows no social status. Prison time has shown itself to be of no deterrent, its time the emphasis be placed on rehabilitation instead of incarceration. Out of sight and out of mind will not clean the streets of drugs, put drug dealers out of business by providing help for their customer base.

    Meth steals the spirit, robs the soul, and kills the body. Every facet of meth destroys our whole society from the user, dealers, enablers, law enforcement, the lawyers, and the judges. We need 21st century laws and enforcement for this 21st century epidemic. Meth, over and above every other stimulant, alcohol included, is the most icidious evil inspired plot to destroy individuals and their families. We would be much better served if we stopped spending TRILLIONS of dollars chasing a few foreign suicide bombers and spent more attention to the terrorists cooking meth next door.

    STOP SOPA! CALL CONGRESS NOW! Corporate supporters of Senate 968 (PIPA) and HR 3261 (SOPA) demand the ability to take down any web site (including craigslist, Wikipedia, or Google) that hurts their profits -- without prior judicial oversight or due process -- in the name of combating "online piracy." PIPA and SOPA authors and supporters insist they'd only go after foreign piracy sites, but Internet Engineers understand this is an attempt to impose "Big Brother" controls on our Internet, complete with DNS hijacking and censoring search results. Incredibly, many Congress Members favor this idea. Try to imagine jack-booted thugs throttling free speech, poisoning the Internet (greatest of American inventions, the very pillar of modern democracy), and devastating one of the our most successful industries. Totalitarian, anti-American, massively-job-killing nonsense. Tell Congress you OPPOSE Senate 968 "Protect IP Act" (PIPA) and H.R. 3261 "Stop Online Piracy Act" (SOPA):

    We need mandatory rehab for people that are addicted to drugs. We also need mandatory sentence for those caught selling drugs to others. As long as we just lock up users we end up right where we are now. As long as a DA accepts plea deals from drug dealers we stay where we are with a revolving door swinging all day. We need to go after the big dealer that is bringing the drugs into our community as well as the nickle dime dealer on the street corner.

    It would seem to me, that the devastation wrought by meth and similar substances upon not only the users, but every innocent person whose paths cross with the addicts, would indicate that logic requires society to execute those who make, import, or sell the evil stuff. Or at the very least- save society some much needed money, and put them in prison and feed them only once a week, so that when they get out, they have no desire to deserve a return visit.

    Ok the this is typical of the problem at large. Soft sentences credit for time served gives the guys a free pass to continue their criminal life style time and time again. Lock them up the first time, with long sentences. Build new uncomfortable jails to hold them all. Make them do some sort of manual labor to earn their room and board while incarcerated. MAke them go to rehab if their addicted. Keep these guys off the streets. If they have the gall to do it again double up oin the penalties.

    I have family and former friends that were doing drugs. I chose not to associate with them as well. As for my family member, I offered help one time and was told no, and I turned my back. I'm sorry for the family that is dealing with this, he may be a great man in your eyes. As for me, I don't feel sorry for him.
