Another individual, identified as Jessica “Jo Jo” Nettles, was also at the residence and was found to be in possession of suspected methamphetamine as well.


Speakman and Nettles were both arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug-related objects. Speakman faces additional charges of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.


In an unrelated incident on March 4, Kevin Kyle Harper was arrested on multiple counts of financial transaction card fraud and theft of property following an investigation by Coffee County Sheriff’s Office detectives.
