Morgan Howard

On Tuesday, November 28, at approximately 7:20 a.m. the East Mississippi Drug Task Force, US Marshal’s and Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics attempted to serve an arrest warrant on Fredrick Jones (AKA MOB) for Sale of Methamphetamine within 1500 feet of a Church in the 3700 block of 43rd street in Meridian.

Jones barricaded himself inside the attic of the residence.

After a few hours, agents were able to apprehend Mr. Jones.

During this incident, agents gathered enough probable cause to obtain a search warrant for the house.

During the search, agents found methamphetamine, guns, money, and a money counter.

Jones is being charged with two counts of Sale of Methamphetamine within 1500 feet of a church, Possession of Methamphetamine with Intent to Distribute while in possession of a firearm, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

He is currently being held at the Lauderdale County Detention Facility where he has no bond because Jones was already out of jail on a previous bond for a Felony Domestic Violence charge.
