Christopher Jarrett, 33, of 602 Park St. in Helena-West Helena, the driver of the vehicle and his passenger, Amanda Brown, 24, of No. 36 Phillips County 275 Road, now face drug-related charges.

Brown face charges of possession of drug paraphernalia with intent to manufacture methamphetamines; possession of drug paraphernalia with intent to use, criminal use of prohibited weapons, criminal trespass and fleeing officers.
Jarrett and Brown had been eluding police officer for some time. When deputies and police officers attempted to stop them, one of them allegedly threw plastic baggies filled with a white powder substance out of the car window while at the same time, driving reckless in their attempts to lose police.
When police finally stopped Jarrett, a search of the vehicle revealed several components for the manufacture of methamphetamines including: liquid fire, lithium batteries, camp fuel, a funnel, ammonia nitrate and clear plastic baggies with white powder which tested positive for ephedrine used in making meth.
At press time, both Jarrett and Brown were being held at the Phillips County jail without bond.
