RANKIN CO., Miss. (WLBT) - A deputy clerk with Rankin County Justice Clerk has been arrested, as well as her husband.

Brandon resident, Samantha Renea White, 35, was charged with hindering prosecution in the first degree in a case involving her husband, Cody Robison Knight, 27.

Knight was supposed to be prosecuted on a charge of possession of a controlled substance, but police say White tried to hide her husband’s whereabouts to keep authorities from finding him.

Knight was at large, but was captured Wednesday afternoon. He has been charged with grand larceny but additional charges are possible.

He was captured on Highway 25 and is now in the Rankin County Jail.
