A Perry man was arrested Tuesday morning after a large quantity of meth and marijuana was allegedly found in a residence where he was located.
Craig Alan White, 49, of 1620 Sixth St., Perry, was charged with two counts of controlled substance violation, failure to affix tax stamp and use of expired tax stamp.
