Four people including a fugitive wanted in Florida were arrested on drugs charges Wednesday in the 100 block of East Wacona Drive when lawmen conducted a search at a house, said Ware County Sheriff’s Capt. Neil Skerratt.
Inside the residence of Kenneth Dewayne Murray, 26, the lawmen found an orange egg filled with crystal methamphetamine, a syringe with liquid methamphetamine and a plastic bag containing crystal methamphetamine, Skerratt said.

One of them, Manjeet Kour Singh, 31, of the 3600 block of Fox Trail, Blackshear, is charged with being a fugitive from justice, wanted in the state of Florida, said Skerratt. Skerratt did not know what law violations in Florida Singh was wanted for this morning.
