Man charged for heroin possession, distribution

March 2nd, 2013 in News

A Jefferson City man remained in the Cole County Jail on Friday on a $100,000 bond after prosecutors charged him with two counts of heroin possession.

Both counts charge that Robert L. Jones, 38, 705A Broadway St., "knowingly distributed and delivered and sold heroin" between Jan. 1 and Feb. 25, 2013.

Jones was arrested Thursday afternoon after the Jefferson City police SWAT and Community Action teams served a search warrant at his apartment, as part of an ongoing narcotics distribution investigation.

A police news release said officers also found a .25-caliber handgun during the search.
