The Cherokee County Sheriff’s Department arrested two Jacksonville men last week and confiscated about $2,000 worth of narcotics and $600 in cash.
According to Sheriff’s Department officials, the men and the location were not part of a current investigation about 3 p.m. Wednesday when detectives pulled up to a residence in the 1000 block of Clemmons Street and noticed three men “behaving suspiciously.”
“Our narcotics investigators drove by, saw some suspicious activity and stopped to check it out. Upon approaching the residence, the three males on the porch fled the scene on foot,” Chief Investigator Chris White said. “One of the three was caught in the back yard of that location; one they were able to track down at a nearby home; and the other was never identified or caught.”
White said Coray McCuin, 20, was apprehended at the scene before he could escape. He was found to be in possession of a small amount of marijuana. Officers also traveled to a house in the 800 block of Lincoln Street, where they had been told one of the other suspects had fled, White said.
After receiving consent from the resident, officers located Michael Reed, 22, in the kitchen of the residence, allegedly attempting to hide a stash of drugs inside a cabinet, according to White.
“Several bags of marijuana and several crack rocks were found in the kitchen cabinet where Reed had (allegedly) tried to stash them,” he said. “Officers also executed a search warrant at the residence back on Clemmons Street, and several more bags of marijuana, scales and packaging materials were found at that location.”
McCuin was charged with evading arrest and possession of marijuana. His bonds were set at $2,000 and $10,000. Reed faces charges of evading arrest, possession of marijuana, possession of a controlled substance and tampering with physical evidence. His bonds were set at $2,000, $2,000, $30,000 and $30,000. Judge Brenda Dominy arraigned and set bonds for both men.
“We have no information on the other man at this time, but if we are able to identify him, he will be charged,” White said.
