On Wednesday, January 06, 2021 members of the Jackson County Drug Task Force were assisted by the United States Marshal’s Service Florida Caribbean Regional Fugitive Task Force in a fugitive investigation. During the course of their investigation, contact was made with Jarrien A’vion Dudley at a residence in the Cypress community. Dudley is a known associate of the fugitive, Ja’Drian Gilbert, who remains at large. Upon making contact with Dudley, he granted Task Force members consent to enter his residence to search for Gilbert. As a result, multiple items consistent with the sales, packaging and/or distribution of illegal narcotics were located in plain view to include MDMA (Ecstacy) and Marijuana. Dudley was known to be on felony probation and he was arrested.
Subsequently, a search warrant was obtained to further search the residence for additional narcotics. The search warrant was executed and revealed quantities of Marijuana, MDMA, Cocaine, and prescription medications packaged for sale. Additionally, two firearms were located as a result of the search warrant and approximately $26,258 US Currency suspected to be the proceeds of the sales of illegal narcotics were seized.
Sheriff Donnie Edenfield would like to extend his most sincere gratitude to the United States Marshal’s Service Fugitive Task Force and its members for their efforts in this investigation and look forward to the continued partnership between the USMS and the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office.
Sheriff Edenfield and his staff are committed to the fight against drugs that plague our community, and would like to encourage anyone with any information about those who traffic in, manufacture, abuse, use, sell, and/or deliver any illegal narcotics or any information as to the whereabouts of any known fugitives to contact the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office at 850-482-9624 or Chipola Crime Stoppers at 850-526-5000 or toll free at 888-804-8494.
