Sheriff joins drug task force in felony drug arrest of man living near Dixon

DIXON, Mo. (Jan. 16, 2010) — Pulaski County Sheriff J.B. King announced Friday that his deputies, working with the Lake Area Narcotics Enforcement Group, arrested a man living outside Dixon on Thursday for possession of marijuana, hashish, and other drug paraphernalia.

Justin Jay Hinkle, 24, of Dixon, faces two Class B felony charges of manufacturing, possessing or delivering a controlled substance, according to online court records. While King announced Friday that Associate Circuit Judge Greg Warren had arraigned him and set his bond at $30,000 cash or surety, as of Saturday evening, online court records confirm only the charges and bail conditions but don’t provide any details of the arraignment or upcoming court hearings.

King said his officers and LANEG personnel seized about 12 ounces of marijuana and “a small amount” of processed hashish, along with firearms, more than $900 in cash and the drug paraphernalia.

Sheriff’s logs show that about a half-dozen law enforcement personnel from multiple agencies began their work at 17900 Cliff Road about 9:57 p.m. Thursday. At 12:24 a.m., Hinkle was cited for unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia and for possession of 35 grams or less of marijuana; he was placed under arrest shortly after 1 a.m. and transported to the sheriff’s department for booking about 20 minutes later.
