Three men were arrested on drug charges in Jones County after a traffic stop turned up prescription and street drugs.
35-year-old Joe Rhem Jr. of Trenton, 51-year-old William Kinsey and 63-year-old Robert Brown both of Pollocksville are all charged with
Felony Possession of Cocaine, Possession of Marijuana, Maintain a Vehicle for Controlled Substance, Possession of Schedule II Controlled Substance, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Open Container of Malt Beverage.
Deputies were dispatched to Pollocksville Wednesday, in reference to shots being fired from an older model, white pickup. Deputies say they searched the area, but were unable to locate the vehicle. A short time later, Sheriff Danny Heath was driving and noticed a truck matching the description of the truck involved in the shooting.
Sheriff Heath stopped the truck with three men inside. Additional deputies responded and say they found oxycodone, marijuana, crack, drug paraphernalia, an open container of alcohol and just under $3,000 in cash. Three men were arrested and all were held under $10,000 bond.
The three men were placed into the custody of the Jones County Detention Center. However, Mr. Rhem posted bond for all three men shortly thereafter.
