Motel Managers Arrested On Drug Charges

Two managers at a Jones County motel have been arrested on drug charges.

Deputies responded to a call of a suspicious person near the Trent Motel early Saturday morning. The motel is located on Main Street in Pollocksville.

When deputies checked in with motel management they found Leonard Jones and Dolly Smith in an office that smelled like marijuana.

After an investigation deputies arrested the two and put them in jail. They are being held on $11,500 dollar bond each.

      There are plenty of houses around the area. The folks in Pollocksville will take them in with open arms.

    Yeah there is this fella down there by the name of Heath. Some of you may have heard of him others may have to call him Sheriff. All I know is he said if you're doing drugs in Jones County I'm coming to see you.....well you got your visit.

    I am saddened but not surprised. This is what happens when small businesses are purchased and the owners are not around to oversee whats happening. I owned the Trent Motel for about 10 years and worked very hard to make a clean, peaceful and safe place for people to stay. I've heard that not so good things were going on and wonder WHY it took so long for law enforcement to do something. I am truly saddened for the the wonderful town of Pollocksville and its great citizens. Sad, sad, sad.
