On May 31, 2019 Investigators and officers with the Marianna Police Department served a narcotics search warrant in the 2900 block of Harley Dr. in Marianna. The target suspect in the investigation was Tony Lee Manning. A municipal park sits at the corner of Harley Dr. and Old Cottondale Rd., which is within 1000 feet of Manning’s residence.
During the search a quantity of ecstasy was discovered in the kitchen of the residence. The ecstasy was pressed into the shapes of a posing woman, YouTube logo, and the Superman logo. Manning stated he sells the ecstasy to buyers and depending on the buyer the price can fluctuate. Officers continued their search and found evidence that Manning was selling and/or distributing marijuana and cocaine. Officers also located boxes of live ammunition, which Manning cannot possess due to him being a convicted felon.
Tony Lee Manning was placed under arrest and booked into the Jackson County Corrections Facility on the above charges.
