A man wanted on a warrant from Opp Municipal Court was captured earlier this week and is also facing two drug charges.

Opp Police Chief Mike McDonald said that an OPD A-shift officer stopped a vehicle on North Main Street after he observed an individual in the vehicle that had a warrant on him.

Roger Smith, 41, of Opp was placed under arrested on a domestic violence warrant.

McDonald said that further investigation by the officer and a member of the 22nd Judicial Drug Task Force resulted in Smith being charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

He was taken to the Covington County Jail.
