Harley Rae Cross, 22, and John Alexander Jackson, 22, both of Jones County, were arrested March 14. The suspects were charged with possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana, and possession of marijuana with intent. Cross, the driver, was also charged with having a defective taillight.
According to a report of the traffic stop by Deputy Angel Feliciano, he observed Cross’ vehicle with its left taillight out and stopped it to let her know. The deputy said he smelled the odor of marijuana and contacted Deputy Chris Shurley to come to his location.
Feliciano searched the vehicle as Shurley stood by with Cross and Jackson, her passenger. He found a clear plastic baggie containing white residue in the driver’s door area.
The deputy said he smelled the odor of marijuana stronger in the back seat area of the vehicle. On the floor he found Red Bull and Pepsi cans, both with false bottoms. He observed a portion of a plastic bag containing a green leafy substance hanging out of the glove box of the car, and at that point Cross and Jackson were taken into custody.
