Two Jackson County Residents Face Crack Cocaine Charges

By  | 

Two Jackson County residents face felony charges, busted this weekend for crack cocaine.

Deputies arrested Marianna resident Marvin Calhoun, 54 years old, along with Greenwood resident Richard Tucker, 46 years old, around 12:30 a.m. Saturday.

According to the sherriff's office, their arrests stemmed from a routine traffic stop, deputies pulled Calhoun's car over for a broken headlight. They then reported Calhoun admitted he didn't have a driver's license, and with his nerves apparently getting the best of him, deputies said Calhoun started to shake. That's when they used a K-9 which alerted to close to five grams of crack cocaine.

Both Calhoun and Tucker were booked into the Jackson County Jail. Calhoun was charged with knowingly driving without a license, both were charged for possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphanalia.

The jail's website listed Tucker was released, but Calhoun remained behind bars Sunday.
