A traffic stop for erratic driving overnight led to the recovery of a stolen vehicle and the arrests of three individuals on illegal narcotics charges in Jones County.

JCSD’s Reserve Deputy Ryan Walters was on routine patrol when he observed a Nissan Murano crossing into oncoming traffic on Lower Myrick Road in eastern Jones County near the Dixie Hills subdivision entrance.

Deputy Walters effected a traffic stop on the vehicle on Theos Road off of Lower Myrick Road. Additional JCSD units responded to the scene for backup.

The Nissan Murano was determined to be reported stolen and the three occupants were arrested after methamphetamine was discovered. Those arrested are:

Christopher Walters, age 50, of Ellisville who was the driver of the stolen Nissan Muran; Kelvin Nixon, age 47, of Stringer; and Lauren Davis, age 40, of Laurel.

All three subjects were charged with Possession of Methamphetamine and Receiving Stolen Property.

The three are incarcerated at the Jones County Adult Detention Facility pending their initial appearances in Jones County Justice Court.
