Information from a confidential informant led investigators with the sheriff’s department drug unit to two men coming into Jones County allegedly with drugs to sell.

Investigator Gerry Nelson said Milton ‘Dobbin’ Evans, 62, and Timothy Corbin Bartlett, 33, both of Macon, were arrested March 5 and charged with possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute.

Drugs were found in the suspects’ possession in the amount of 3-1/2 to 4 grams, and $1,400 in cash was also seized.

Nelson said the tip indicated the men would be in the area of Lo Bucks convenience store on Shurling Drive and they were observed in the area at approximately 6:20 p.m.

When the men pulled in the parking lot, they were identified by the officers and arrested following the location of the drugs. Nelson said he is in the process of obtaining warrants, and they will have to go in front of a Superior Court judge for bond.
