Comments Off on City of Hattiesburg accountant, James Eugene Polk, arrested on Methamphetamine drug charges

Forrest County Sheriff’s deputies have arrested a City of Hattiesburg accountant on drug charges.

Investigator Nick Calico said James Eugene Polk was arrested Thursday for possession of methamphetamine and manufacture of methamphetamine — both felonies — as well as a misdemeanor of disturbance of the family.

Calico said the 12th Judicial District’s Narcotics Unit was also involved in the arrest.

He declined to divulge any other information about the case, saying the investigation is ongoing.

City of Hattiesburg spokeswoman Chinika Hughes said Polk has been employed as an accountant with the city for the past four months. She said he still holds his job, despite his arrest.

Hughes said Polk’s duties involve handling money and dealing with budgets.

Polk was released from the Forrest County Jail Friday on $32,000 bond.
