An accused drug dealer has turned himself in to the Clay County Sheriff's Office days after authorities say they found more than $10,000 worth of methamphetamine in his home.
Marcus Starks, 36, of Pheba, was arrested at CCSO at about 1:30 p.m. Monday, according to a Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics press release. He faces charges of sale of methamphetamine, trafficking in controlled substance and possession of marijuana, according to the Clay County Jail's inmate roster.
