29-year old Jessica Ann Groves, of East prairie is facing a felony charge of delivery of a controlled substance near a protected place, which was an elementary school, following a narcotics investigation by the Mississippi County Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff Cory Hutcheson says the investigation began earlier this week when they received information that Groves was on her way to deliver methamphetamine to an East Prairie residence. Surveillance recorded Groves delivering the meth, which was then recovered. Shortly afterward a traffic stop was conducted and Groves was placed under arrest on an active warrant and transported to the Mississippi County Detention Center. She remains jailed with a bond set of $100,000.
