HARRISBURG, AR (KAIT) – A year-long police investigation stops some would-be meth makers in their tracks.

On Wednesday, March 23, Jonesboro police along with the Craighead and Poinsett County Sheriff's Offices and the Drug Enforcement Agency arrested Michael Marshall and Sherrie Henry of Harrisburg.

Investigators say they seized more than four pounds pseudoephedrine powder from two different homes.

An agent with the Drug Task Force tells Region 8 News the powder would have been used to make nearly four pounds of methamphetamine, with a street value of nearly $200,000. 

Investigators say the powder was shipped to the suspects from China and Europe.

Henry and Marshall are being held in the Poinsett County Detention Center facing multiple drug charges.
