Drug operation goes to pot


A drug ledger, four ounces of marijuana, and a large amount of cash are the evidence held against a Laurel man now charged with drug trafficking.

James Jones, 53, of East 4th Street in London, was arrested Tuesday around 6:15 p.m. for trafficking in marijuana, less than 8 ounces and operating a motor vehicle under the influence.
