JACKSON — Suspected methamphetamine and other items were reportedly discovered during a recent traffic stop in Jackson.
On Wednesday Sept. 9, at approximately 11:57 p.m. officers with the Jackson Police Department (JPD) working traffic, drug interdiction and crime prevention, stopped a vehicle on Athens Street in Jackson for a traffic violation.
According to a JPD incident report, during the stop officers identified three females, the driver produced a Florida license, one passenger produced a Mississippi license and the third produced a West Virginia license.
The report showed that through conversation and checks through LEADS, officers determined the driver did not have a valid license and drug activity was suspected.
A search was granted and officers located a container with a crystal substance believed to be methamphetamine, Suboxone strips individually packaged, glass pipes, digital scales, more sandwich baggies, and $1,205 in cash. All items and cash were seized for evidence in a case of suspected drug trafficking.
The driver reportedly claimed ownership of all the above listed items.
The three females were released from the scene and a case will be reviewed by the Jackson County Prosecutor's Office for anticipated felony charges.
