According to the sheriff's department, the deputy met a vehicle on Sept. 9 he believed to be driven by a person with a county warrant.

Jerry Dickerson and his wife Jeana both of Dolph had outstanding warrants in Fulton and Baxter County as well.

While investigating the vehicle, officers found a purse containing a bag with a "white granular substance", four syringes and a metal spoon. All of the items tested positive for meth, according to the sheriff's department.
