An investigation into alleged drug activity at a mobile home on the west side of Pine Bluff Saturday resulted in the arrest of two men after cocaine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia were found in the residence.

Because of prior drug related convictions, Quentin Jones, 26, and Charles Jones, 31, will each have to post $50,000 bonds to be released from the county detention center while prosecutors prepare new charges against them.

During a court hearing Monday, Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said vice and narcotics detectives served the warrant at Third Avenue and Young Street at about 7:20 p.m., and after yelling police, went in through an open door.

Charles Jones was detained in the living room and Quentin Jones was detained in a bedroom while the search was conducted.

Detective Richard McCorvy reported that investigators found a bag containing 10 grams of an off-white substance that field tested positive for cocaine, three bags containing 41 grams of a green vegetable substance that field tested positive for marijuana, 10 hydrocodone pills, two sets of digital scales, and $1,977 in cash inside the residence.

Kizer said while officers were conducting the search, an unknown white male came to the house and “wanted to buy marijuana.”

He said both Quentin Jones and Charles Jones had previously been convicted of drug charges, and Charles Jones also had a prior conviction for murder.

Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney ruled prosecutors had probable cause to charge both men with two counts of possession of a controlled substance with purpose to deliver, and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Both Quentin Jones and Charles Jones said they would hire their own attorneys and were instructed to come back to court Feb. 13.
