“While speaking with Jones, the officers noticed he was acting strangely and was extremely concerned with book bag that was in his possession,” McMann said. “The officers received consent to search the book bag, and recovered a glass tube which is commonly used to ingest narcotics with a charred residue in the tube that field tested positive for methamphetamine.”

Jones was transported to the Escambia County Detention Center in Brewton.
