A 19-year-old woman and a 37-year-old man were arrested early Thursday when police discovered the pair was using a motel room to distribute methamphetamine.
Rachel Ned and Trey Jones were arrested without incident about 2:30 a.m. Sgt. Brice Woolly, Ardmore Police Department Criminal Investigations, said the pair was apprehended when patrol officers responded to a report of a substantial amount of suspicious activity going and coming from the motel room they had rented.
“Officers knocked on the door and when the door was opened they could see the methamphetamine in plain sight,” Woolly said.
The pair was booked into the Carter County Detention Center. By Thursday afternoon charges had been filed against the duo. Ned and Jones both face a felony charge of possession of methamphetamine within by 2,000 feet of park, due to the location of the motel in the 2500 block of Veterans Boulevard. Jones also faces a charge of possession of marijuana. In addition, the charges against Jones carry a penalty enhancement motion. The “Page II” centers on four of Jones’ previous narcotics convictions.
Ned and Jones made initial appearances in front of Special District Judge Carson Brooks. The judge set a $2,000 cash bond on the charge against Ned. There is a $5,000 bond set on the charges facing Jones.
