Laurel man arrested on drug charges

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - On Tuesday, the Laurel Narcotics Division executed a search warrant at 321 West 21st Street in Laurel where 20-year old Andrea Babcock was being investigated by the department.

Once inside, agents arrested Babcock and searched the residence where they found a quantity of marijuana along with a set of scales and baggies used for packaging the drug.

Babcock is charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.

He will make his initial appearance in Laurel Municipal Court later this week.

However, his bond will have a revocation to revoke because he was already out on bond for a previous possession of a schedule II narcotic with intent to distribute.

Babcock is presently being held in the Jones County Jail.
