One arrested in J'ville drug bust
Police take two more into custody
The Jacksonville Daily Progress is reporting: Michael Reed, a Jacksonville man, was arrested by police officers on a felony warrant Thursday afternoon.
Jacksonville Police Detective Sgt. Daniel Franklin said the arrest, which took place just outside the Norman Activity Center on Austin Street, also resulted in two others being taken into police custody.
“We had worked on a narcotics investigation about narcotics sales in the Palestine Street area,” Franklin said. “The subject we were looking for, Michael Reed, has had warrants for his arrest for a month now and he had been able to elude us.”
Franklin said the department received a call concerning Reed’s location in the Lincoln Park area and an officer was able to describe a blue Chevrolet sedan class vehicle leaving the area. He added a felony traffic stop was soon made and Reed was arrested and charged with delivery of a controlled substance in a drug free zone.
“It was cocaine,” Franklin said. “When Reed left his vehicle officers found other narcotics on his person.” He said the types of pills allegedly with Reed were not known at the time of the arrest.
