JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - A Jackson man was in police custody Tuesday for possession of prescription drugs.

MBN agents say 51-year-old Lester Finch had a variety of controlled substances with an estimated street value of 100-thousand dollars.

A search of his home at 114 Horseshoe Circle turned up approximately 3,425 dosage units of Lorcet, 1,925 dosage units of Dilaudid, 30 dosage units of Oxycodone and a significant quantity of liquid Promethazine with Codeine.

As a result, Finch was charged with possession of schedule two, three, and five controlled substances with intent to distribute.

He was being held at the Hinds County jail Tuesday night pending an initial court appearance.
