Jesse Willard Brooks, 37 of Rome, was arrested this week after reports said he was found with a large amount of methamphetamine.

Reports said that Brooks was found with two bags of the drug, one containing more than what is considered for personal use.

Police went on to state that Brooks attempted to do away with the drugs in an effort to hide them from police.

Brooks is charged with possession of meth, possession of meth with intent to distribute, tampering with evidence and possession of drug related objects.
