PRENTISS COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) - Prentiss County deputies arrested a man after he was found passed out in his truck with multiple drugs in his possession according to the sheriff.

Deputies responded to the scene on County Road 5111 on Monday night, August 13, Sheriff Randy Tolar said. 

He said deputies discovered Xanax, Viagra and methamphetamine in the possession of Christopher Guy Adams, 49, of Baldwyn.

Adams has been charged with both, felony and misdemeanor, possession of controlled substance. 

Tolar said Adams was on active parole from the Mississippi Department of Corrections (MDOC) and remains in custody with an MDOC hold.
