Coweta County, GA – Jim Jones has been officially charged with five felonies from his June arrest in Georgia. According to TMZ, the Dipset rapper has been hit with three counts of possession of a controlled substance and two counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. He was also hit with a misdemeanor for possession of marijuana under an ounce.
Jones was arrested on drug possession and weapons charges after the Mercedes he was riding in was pulled over. As the officer was conducting the traffic stop, driver Ana Rajnee Miles sped away and led the Atlanta police officers on a short chase.
After finally apprehending Jones and the other three vehicle occupants, investigators searched the car and discovered marijuana, 23 Oxycodone pills and a loaded Titan .25 caliber pistol inside a backpack. They also found a Ruger SR 9mm handgun reported stolen from Dekalb County in March.
In a second backpack, police found a variety of Oxycodone, Percocet, THC oil, Jones’ passport and $148 in what Jones called “petty cash.”
Jones’ arraignment is scheduled for later this month. If convicted on all six charges, he faces up to decades in prison.
