The Washington County Sheriff’s Office tells 5NEWS that during an arrest Saturday morning (Jan. 18) a suspect ingested an unknown amount of meth.
Thomas Jetton, 24, was arrested for a breaking-and-entering case in December.
DNA evidence linked Jetton to the crime, investigators said.
Deputies say when he was in the back seat of a cruiser, authorities noticed Jetton ingesting meth.
Thomas was charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, tampering with evidence and driving on a suspended license. Jetton will have a court date soon in Washington County Circuit Court.
