ADAMS COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A drug bust in Adams County has landed a convicted felon back behind bars and allowed deputies to get marijuana, cash and a handgun off the streets.

The Adams County Sheriff's Office along with Metro Narcotics Agents led an investigation of a major drug operation in the Kenneth Graves subdivision Tuesday night at 10:30 p.m. Officials executed a search warrant at 31-B Graves Avenue.

Sheriff Mayfield says the search yielded 26.5 ounces of high grade hydroponic and regular marijuana broken into several bags sorted by the pound, ounce and gram with a street value of $4000 to $5000. Deputies also seized packaging materials consistent with those used to package and re-sale, a 380 caliber semi-automatic handgun, and $495 in cash believed to be drug money.

With the assistance of Canine Deputy Scout, Adams County drug and search and rescue dog, agents were alerted to marijuana hidden beneath the seat of a vehicle outside the residence that belonged to the suspect.

Jameson Rogers, 32, a convicted felon, was arrested on the scene. Charges against Rogers include possession of schedule 1 control substance with intent to distribute while in possession of a firearm within 1,500 feet of a church, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, and sale of schedule 1 controlled substance within 1,500 feet of a church.

"This is an example of about a week's worth of activity from Rogers. His arrest is major step in curtailing the sale of high grade marijuana in northern Adams County," Sheriff Mayfield said.

Rogers was released on a $20,000 bond. This is Rogers' eighth arrest since 2000. Other arrests include the sale and possession of marijuana and cocaine, dog fighting, malicious mischief and DUI.

All cash seized in the bust will help fund the Metro Narcotics Unit.
