PERRY COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

A man wanted by the Mississippi Department of Corrections was arrested Wednesday in Perry County.

According to Sheriff Jimmy Dale Smith, Tarsen Fairley, 27, was arrested near a residence located on Fairley O'neal Road.

“MDOC in conjunction with the U.S. Marshals Task Force got with us and our narcotics team,” said Sheriff Smith. “When they got to the residence they proceeded to make entry and the guy fled out the back door, ran into a wooded area and they apprehended him without incident after that. When they made entry they saw narcotics and a large amount of cash on the table. They retreated and got a search warrant and went back in with the search warrant and found 97 grams of crystal meth ice.”

Sheriff Smith said marijuana was also found inside the home. The total amount of cash found was $1,105. Fairley is being charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute. He also has several charges with other agencies.

“He's been wanted for several months by Gulfport, by George County, by the Mississippi Department of corrections,” said Sheriff Smith. “Right now he's being charged with probation of violation with the Mississippi Department of Corrections.”

Fairley is scheduled to have his initial appearance Friday. Sheriff Smith said Fairley was wanted by MDOC for probation violation.
