As Randall was arresting Jones, he observed evidence of possible narcotics use and deployed K9 Nero, who searched the outside of Jones’ vehicle. Nero alerted Randall to narcotics in the vehicle and a search revealed a commercial quantity of methamphetamine, which was pre-weighed, packaged and labeled for sale.

Jones was taken into custody and lodged at the Lincoln County Jail where he faces charges of delivery, possession and manufacturing of a controlled substance in addition to the two outstanding felony warrants for failure to appear and parole violation stemming from an earlier property hit and run from another jurisdiction. His bail was set at $265,000.

  1. Great job that much less out there plus another dealer wanted person off the streets for now. Needs to be locked up looks like one of those no hope for cases especially for hit and run how many drugs was in his possession when he hit another person run so would not be found with more drugs.

  2. It’s all commercial quantity, and I hope no one was fooled by that measure
    what’s it, that decriminalized narcotics and hallucinogenic drugs.
    Court ordered rehab does not work. Go to an AA meeting, or if there are any here, an NA meeting and find out.
