JACKSON COUNTY, FL – On July 21, 2022, at approximately 11:00 p.m., a deputy with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) was actively patrolling on Highway 73 South when he observed a vehicle traveling with faulty equipment.
The Deputy initiated a traffic stop and made contact with the driver, identified as Jenna Leigh Tolin.
While the deputy was issuing a written warning, a narcotics K-9 was deployed for a free air sniff and alerted to the front passenger side of the vehicle. Tolin was asked to exit the vehicle, and while searching the vehicle’s interior, a purse was located on the front passenger seat containing two baggies with a crystal-like substance that field tested presumptive positive for Methamphetamine as well as 15 needles and a spoon with a white residue. Two additional needles were found in the driver’s pocket.
Jenna Leigh Tolin was taken into custody without incident and charged with Possession of Methamphetamine Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
Sheriff Edenfield is appreciative of the JCSO deputies who continue to conduct active patrol in our county and apprehend individuals who seek to commit crimes.
