The Jones County Sheriff’s Department arrested four individuals on Wednesday night during a illegal narcotics raid at a residence on Mrs. Robinson Road in Moselle.

Sheriff Joe Berlin, along with members of the JCSD Narcotics and Patrol Divisions, executed a search warrant at a residence and a camper on the property. There were seven adults and three small children in the two structures. Arrested at the scene were:

Jon Breazeale, age 39
Possession of MDMA (Felony)
Possession of Marijuana
Possession of Paraphernalia

Justin Gatlin, age 29
Resisting Arrest
Possession of Methamphetamine
Possession of Paraphernalia

Crystal Hicks, age 40
Possession of Methamphetamine
Possession of MDMA

David Shaw, age 63
Possession of Paraphernalia

Three other adults and three small children were also located in the two structures. The three adults were initially detained, but not charged.

“We have received numerous complaints from the Moselle community regarding illegal narcotics sales and usage at this address on Mrs. Robinson Road,” notes Jones County Sheriff Joe Berlin. “If you think we aren’t paying attention to your illegal narcotics activities just keep thinking that. When we come knocking, don’t be surprised.”

One subject, Justin Gatlin, fled the residence on foot and was quickly captured after a short foot chase with deputies. Gatlin was evaluated by EMServ medics after resisting arrest, but did not require medical transport.

All four individuals charged are incarcerated in the Jones County Adult Detention Facility pending their initial appearance in Jones County Justice Court.
