Three men are facing multiple drug-related charges after they were arrested Tuesday by members of the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office Aggressive Criminal Enforcement Team.

Ricky Sherman Mason Jr., 32, of 304 Bladestone Drive, Pikeville; Jeannautica Tealle Jones, 19, of 105 Sycamore St., Fremont; and Carl Anthony Jackson III, 304 Bladestone Drive, Pikeville, were each charged with one felony count of possession with the intent to sell or deliver marijuana and one felony count of maintaining a dwelling. Mason is facing additional felony charges for trafficking heroin.

ACE Team Cpl. Travis Cox said sheriff’s deputies responded to a disturbance at 304 Bladestone Drive between Mason and his neighbor. Cox said the disturbance involved an ongoing issue between the neighbor and Mason’s dog.

Upon arrival, Cox said deputies could smell a “pungent odor of green, unburned marijuana,” which he described as marijuana that is ready for recreational use. Later that day, Cox said the ACE Team launched an investigation into the residence at 304 Bladestone Drive to look into any prior drug complaints.

“We were looking into the history of complaints,” Cox said. “And there were complaints of high traffic at the residence.”

Based on the investigation, Cox said the ACE Team secured a warrant to search the residence. Members of the ACE Team arrested and charged three suspects, who Cox said possessed 308 grams of marijuana and 180 grams of heroin total.

“With the marijuana, that’s a larger than usual amount,” Cox said. “That quantity of marijuana is not used for personal use.”

Cox said the amount of marijuana and heroin led the ACE Team to issue charges for possession with intent to sell or deliver and heroin trafficking charges.

Mason was charged with one felony count of trafficking heroin by transportation, one felony count of trafficking heroin by possession, one felony count of possession with intent to sell or deliver marijuana, two felony counts of maintaining a dwelling/vehicle and one misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia. He was transported to the Wayne County jail under a $805,000 secured bond

Jones was charged with one felony count of possession with intent to sell or deliver marijuana, one felony count of maintaining a dwelling/vehicle and one misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia. He was transported to the Wayne County jail under a $10,000 secured bond.

Jackson was charged with one felony count of possession with intent to sell or deliver marijuana, one felony count of maintaining a dwelling/vehicle and one misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia. He was transported to the Wayne County jail under a $5,000 secured bond.
