A Vicksburg man and woman were in the Warren County jail this morning accused of intending to manufacture methamphetamine.

Matthew Pettway, 28, and Natasha Boone, 31, both of 155 Deer Ridge Road, were arrested on Monday at their home after a Vicksburg police officer received information that the two were in possession of materials necessary to manufacture methamphetamine, Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said.

Pace said Sheriff’s deputies, Vicksburg police officers and the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics officers went to the home off U.S. 80 near Bovina to search for the items after obtaining a search warrant, in which they recovered more than two of the necessary materials.
