Jones County Sheriff’s Department narcotics agents and deputies arrested two men overnight at a residence in the Hoy Community on narcotics and weapons charges.
Cedric Carmichael, age 43, was arrested on a charge of Possession of a Controlled Substance While In Possession of a Firearm. Carmichael also had an outstanding warrant from the Mississippi Department of Corrections.
Wilson Graves, age 41, was arrested on a charge of Possession of a Controlled Substance While In Possession of a Firearm. Graves was also charged with Possession of a Stolen Firearm.
Narcotics agents confiscated cocaine, meth, ecstasy tablets, two stolen weapons, and another weapon with the serial number filed off. Both subjects are ex-cons and additional charges may be forthcoming.
“We continue to pursue those who are selling illegal narcotics in Jones County,” advises JCSD Sgt. Jake Driskell. “Day or night, you never know when we are going to show up and disrupt your illegal narcotics operation.”
Jones County Sheriff Joe Berlin notes, “We are working hard to rid our communities of the scourge of illegal narcotics and the dealers that are pushing this garbage. Don’t expect that effort to let up anytime soon.”
Both men are incarcerated at the Jones County Adult Detention Facility pending their initial appearance in Jones County Justice Court.
