Jim Jones Arrested Charged w/ Possession of Stolen Gun, Drugs + Leads Cops On Speed Chase
No so good new for Jim Jones. The 41-year-old rapper was arrested in Cowetta County and charged with possession of the stolen gun, possession of a firearm during commission of a crime and possession of narcotics.
According to reports, he and his friends led Georgia police on a chase Wednesday night. Jones was traveling in the backseat of a gray Mercedes SUV traveling south on Interstate 85 that reportedly drifted into the left hand emergency lane several times.
When cops pulled up beside the SUV, the interior of the car appeared to be filled with smoke and the smell of marijuana was apparent . A traffic stop was conducted, where the driver of the SUV reportedly rolled through the stop sign at the bottom of the exit ramp before pulling over on the side of the highway.
While officers were exiting their vehicle, the driver of the SUV accelerated and led police on a short chase.
Jones said he had told the driver of the car, identified as Ana Rajnee Miles, to pull over, but stated she was acting “incoherent”.
After searching the vehicle, 23 Oxycodone pills and a Titan .25 caliber pistol with seven bullets in the chamber was found.
Marijuana was also found scattered through the car, along with a Ruger SR 9mm handgun reported stolen from Dekalb County in March. A variety of Oxycodone, Percocet and THC oil were also found in a bag, along with Jones’ passport and $148.
Jones reportedly admitted to smoking marijuana, but denied any of the marijuana found in the car belonged to him. He also denied knowledge of the firearms and advised he has a prescription for the pills, although he didn’t have it with him.
Miles, 23, was charged with aggravated assault, fleeing/attempting to elude police, theft by receiving stolen property, narcotics possession, marijuana possession, dangerous drugs to be kept in original container, aggressive driving and failure to maintain lane.
Passengers Darnell Maurice Wright, 31, and Jamal Rajhun Smith, 32, were also charged with narcotics possession, marijuana possession and possession of firearm during commission of a crime. Smith was also charged with theft by receiving stolen property.
Jones was released on 7k bail.
