Jones County Sheriff’s Department narcotics agents arrested two men overnight on illegal narcotics charges. The two were arrested at a residence on B.W. Patterson Road in Moselle following community complaints of drug activity.

Johnathan Taylor, age 31, and Lonnie Reid, age 41, both from Moselle, are already facing individual court trials on previous drug charges and were both out on bond.

Taylor is charged with Sale of Meth and Tampering With Physical Evidence. Reid is charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance. Both are incarcerated at the Jones County Adult Detention Facility pending their initial appearances in Jones County Justice Court. JCSD will be requesting bond revocation on both men.

JCSD Narcotics Division Sergeant Jake Driskell notes, “You would think that already facing trials on illegal narcotics charges would be enough to dissuade these two from continuing to be associated with illegal narcotics usage and/or sale. Apparently not.”

Jones County Sheriff Joe Berlin advises, “If anyone thinks that we aren’t serious about interrupting the illegal narcotics trade in Jones County, then just stand by for more news.”
