NATCHEZ — Adams County Sheriff’s Office Special Operations Group deputies said they arrested a woman on drug trafficking charges Friday after approximately 75 grams of methamphetamine was found in her house on Wednesday.
Sheriff Travis Patten said Angie Mapp was arrested Friday morning on drug trafficking charges after deputies located her at a residence on Tate Road.
Deputies had been searching for Mapp since Wednesday evening after the Adams County Sheriff ’s Office Special Operations Group executed a narcotics search warrant at her house on 15 Wildlife Way, Natchez, Patten said.
While searching the residence on Wednesday, 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.”
Mapp is being held in the Adams County Jail, Patten said.
While at the Tate Road house on Friday, Patten said deputies also recovered several items that had been reported stolen, including a double belt sander and wood plainer, believed to have been taken from a burglary on Longmire Road.
“Deputies recovered the items and then went to 1318 U.S. 61 north and located Terry Huff,” Patten said. “After deputies talked to Huff, they went to 47A Proby Rd and located a Honda Foreman 4 wheeler that was believed to have been stolen from a residence on Green Acres Road.”
Patten said Huff faces charges of receiving stolen items.
“Investigators are still working on interviewing more witnesses and trying to locate more property in the coming days,” Patten said.
