Jones County Sheriff’s Department narcotics agents executed a search warrant at a residence in the 1800 block of Highway 184 in the Powers Community on Friday night.

JCSD narcotics agents arrested Kelsey Bradshaw, age 42,  and James Blankenbeckly, age 40,  on charges of Possession of Meth with Intent and Possession of a Controlled Substance – Fentanyl.  

Bradshaw attempted to barricade herself in the residence, but was quickly taken into custody. Both Bradshaw and Blankenbeckly are incarcerated in the Jones County Adult Detention Facility pending their initial appearance in Jones County Justice Court.

JCSD Narcotics Division Sergeant Jake Driskell notes, “We had received information that illegal narcotics were being distributed and used at this residence. Our narcotics division team works long hours building cases to combat illegal narcotics in Jones County, in this case methamphetamine and fentanyl.”

Jones County Sheriff Joe Berlin advises, “If the illegal narcotics dealers don’t understand that we are serious about shutting them down, then they are just plain stupid. My best advice is they should sleep with one eye open because you just never know when our narcotics agents are gonna come knocking.”
