JONESVILLE — On Aug. 7, the Yadkin County Sheriff’s Office received a call referencing two suspicious subjects, a male and a female, walking south on U.S. 21 in Jonesville.
Upon making contact with both, they said they were trying to find a ride to Gaston County. While speaking with the subjects, and with the help of Jonesville Police Department, a check was done to make sure there was nothing illegal on their persons. In doing so, precursors for methamphetamine and various drug paraphernalia were located, according to a release from the sheriff’s office.
At that time, Yadkin County Sheriff’s Office arrested Paul Milton Emmons, 38, of Jonesville, and charged him with one count of felony possession of methamphetamine precursors (chemicals that are used to manufacture methamphetamine including sodium nitrate, sodium chloride and ammonium nitrate). He was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.
The female, who was not identified, was cited for drug paraphernalia by Jonesville Police Department.
Emmons was given a $7,500 secured bond with a court date of Aug. 9.
