Jones County Sheriff’s Department narcotics agents arrested James Myrick, age 59, overnight following the execution of a search warrant at a residence on Claiborne Road.
A search of the residence yielded methamphetamine, digital scales, and other drug paraphernalia.
James Myrick was arrested and charged with Possession of Methamphetamine With Intent To Distribute. He is currently incarcerated at the Jones County Adult Detention Facility pending his initial appearance in Jones County Justice Court.
“We are pressing the fight against those in Jones County who are selling illegal narcotics,” notes Jones County Sheriff Joe Berlin. “Just because we didn’t come see you last night, doesn’t mean we won’t be knocking on your door tonight.”
JCSD Narcotics Division Sergeant Jake Driskell advises, “We are engaging these illegal narcotics dealers on a near daily basis. My best advice to them is to exit the illegal drug trade and go find a job and make an honest living.”
