Woman sought after search warrant leads to meth seizure


NATCHEZ — Adams County Sheriff’s Office deputies are searching for a woman they said had 22 ounces of methamphetamine in her house.

On Wednesday evening, the Adams County Sheriff’s Office Special Operations Group executed a narcotics search warrant at 15 Wildlife Way, Natchez, said sheriff Travis Patten.

“The owner of the residence, Angie Mapp, was not home at the time the search warrant was executed,” Patten said.

While searching the residence, Patten said, agents located digital scales, detailed ledgers of drug debts and smoking pipes throughout the living room and kitchen.

“In the bedroom, a safe was removed from the closet and opened,” Patten said. “Inside the safe was approximately 75 grams of suspected methamphetamine and packaging material along with more detailed drug ledgers and $1,682 in cash.”

Patten said the search warrant was served as part of the multi-agency investigation that has led to the seizure of more than 22 ounces of methamphetamine being seized in the last 45 days.

Patten said when located, Mapp would be charged with trafficking methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.

“Agents will continue the investigation,” Patten said, “especially into the names of people who were buying large quantities of methamphetamine from Mapp. More arrests are expected in the near future.”
