City man charged with multiple drug felonies

Detectives with the Henderson County Drug Task Force with the assistance of the Hendersonville Police Department and Henderson County SWAT Team charged a 61-year-old resident with multiple drug felonies on Friday after executing a search warrant at 624 Jonas St., the sheriff's office said.


The search warrant resulted from detectives conducting an investigation into complaints received from the community about a high volume of foot traffic at the residence, which is near the site of the new police station. As a result of the search warrant, detectives found marijuana, crack cocaine and a small amount of cash in the residence. Detectives arrested Gary Vernon Jones, of Hendersonville, and charged him with the following manufacturing cocaine, possession with intent to sell/deliver cocaine, possession with intent to sell/deliver marijuana, maintaining a dwelling for purposes of sell/delivery of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Jones was jailed at the Henderson County Detention Center under a $37,000 bond.
