Three charged for trafficking cocaine
Waynesville police recently arrested three men for trafficking a substantial amount of crack cocaine.
The original charges occurred in early December, when Waynesville Police Officer Evan Davis pulled over a vehicle with a revoked tag.
Driving the car was 27-year-old Josean Kinard, of Spindale, and in his company were Christopher Tucker, 30, and Caliph Mayo, 24, both of Waynesville.
Tucker was arrested on two outstanding warrants out of Jackson County and Davis searched the vehicle after detecting a strong marijuana odor, according to police reports.
Kinard and Mayo were released after a search of the car and Tucker was taken to jail. During a search of his person, officers found two bags of marijuana in his pants and about 106 grams of "crack" cocaine in his sock on his left leg.
