3 Denied Bond in Mississippi Meth Case

Three people arrested during an investigation of an alleged meth supplier's plan to attend spring break in Mississippi have been denied bond.

The Sun Herald reports 36-year-old Tosh Humphrey, of Slidell, Louisiana, and 40-year-old Roy Tatum, of Palestine, Texas, were on probation for federal convictions and had failed to report to a probation supervisor as ordered.

Authorities say Humphrey, Tatum and 36-year-old Chiquita Acker, of Pearlington, Mississippi, each tested positive for drug use.

U.S. Magistrate Judge John Gargiulo ordered a grand jury review in a hearing Tuesday.

The three were arrested Friday, the day the Biloxi Beach Black Weekend began.

As agents tried to enter Acker's home for a search, they heard the toilet flushing. An agent later broke a drain pipe and collected three 5-gallon buckets of liquid that tested positive for meth.
