By Staff
GAINESVILLE - Hall County drug agents "got their man" during a raid on Jermaine McKenzie Jackson's home Thursday - their second at that location in just over a month.<br /> <br /> Lt. Scott Ware, commander of the Hall County Multi-Agency Narcotics Squad (MANS), says Jackson faces eight drug-related charges after agents served a search warrant at his home in the 800 block of High Street. Ware added more charges are expected to be filed in the case.<br /> <br /> They also served arrest warrants on him growing out of a raid at the same house on July 3.<br /> <br /> Lt. Ware says during Thursday's bust, agents seized methamphetamine, marijuana and Alprazolam (with a street value of more than $450) along with digital and mechanical scales. <br /> <br /> Ware says on July 3, marijuana, methamphetamine, cocaine, Vyvanse, Adderall, Percocet, Alprazolam, Oxycodone, scales and packaging materials were confiscated. The estimated street value of the drugs seized at that time is $3,030.<br /> <br /> According to Lt. Ware, additional warrants will be obtained for possession of Alprazolam and Oxycodone with the intent to distribute.<br /> <br />
