A total of 103 grams of methamphetamine was seized during the arrests.

“Another great job by our narcotics division in getting methamphetamine off our streets and out of our communities,”  said JCSD Sheriff Joe Berlin.

“We’ve made no secret of the fact that we are going after those who distribute this illegal narcotics garbage. These two arrests should make our intent even clearer.”

Both Elledge and McAndrews had their bonds set at $25,000 in Jones County Justice Court.
