On Monday, May 23rd, Sheriff Randy Graves, Deputy Capehart, Deputy Weiss and Deputy Lucas with the White County Sheriff’s Department executed a search warrant at the residence of 34 year Joseph W James of 729 Shipley Street in Carmi. Upon entry, the officers saw a set of digital scales on a dresser that were coated in a white powdery substance. A field test of the white substance was positive for methamphetamine. A safe that was found in the search contained scales covered in meth residue, the small crystals of meth along with clear plastics intact and cut, gave confirmation that James was distributing Methamphetamine from within that residence. No further information is available at this time.
