A complaint about possible drug use led to the Sunday night arrest of four Henry County residents in the Antioch Harbor area by Henry County Sheriff’s officers.

Arrested were Gerald O. Jackson, 54, 110 Irvine St.; Bryant Keith Arnett, 39, and Allison Nicole Arnett, 36, both of Mason Lane No. 9.; and Audrey D. Rodriguez, 43, 111 Irvine St.

All four were charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, manufacture or deliver, simple possession of marijuana and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia by Sheriff’s Deputy Gary Carroll.

According to Carroll’s report, officers received a call of a suspicious black car that was spotted on Lake Access Road. The caller believed the occupants could be doing drugs down by the water.

After Sheriff’s Sgt. Rodney Littleton and Carroll arrived on the scene, they received permission to search the car by the four occupants, later identified as Jackson, Rodriguez and the Arnetts.

During the search, officers recovered a black bag on the car’s floorboard containing several needles, including one needle containing a black substance believed to be heroin, three separate bags containing 3.8 grams of a crystal substance believed to be methamphetamine, and a bag of what was thought to be marijuana.

The bag also contained three glass smoking pipes believed to contain meth residue and two spoons containing residue.

When questioned about the bag, none of the four occupants knew who it belonged to.

Bond for the four was set at $20,000 each. All are scheduled to appear June 20 in Henry County General Sessions Court.
