Odd twist to drug deal leads to two arrests

Officials recently discovered an odd twist about alleged drug dealing while attempting to serve an arrest warrant.

According to Clay County Sheriff Mike Heaton, deputies were attempting to serve an arrest warrant in an unrelated case Saturday evening, when they noticed two nearby individuals run away from the undisclosed Brazil address.

After a short foot pursuit, the suspects were taken into custody.

During the subsequent ongoing investigation, allegations surfaced that Zachariah Jones, 20, and Charles R. Moran, 28, both of Brazil, were conspiring to lure an unidentified "drug dealer" to the area so they could steal drugs and resale them.

Jones was preliminarily charged with Conspiracy to Commit Robbery, Visiting a Common Nuisance and a Probation Violation. He appeared by video conference in Clay Superior Court Tuesday to be formally arraigned on one count of class A felony Conspiracy to Commit Robbery Resulting In Serious Bodily Injury, one count of class D felony Maintaining a Common Nuisance and a Class A misdemeanor charge of Possession of Paraphernalia.

Judge Blaine Akers entered a preliminary plea of not guilty on Jones' behalf, set bond a cash bond of $10,000 with no 10 percent allowed (consecutive with any other bonds Jones may face) and appointed Clay County Public Defender Charles Hear to represent Jones in the case. A jury trial has been tentatively scheduled for Aug. 1.

Moran was preliminarily charged with Conspiracy to Commit Robbery, Possession of Methamphetamine and Maintaining a Common Nuisance. Moran is currently incarcerated at the Clay County Justice Center on a $10,000 cash bond, with no 10 percent allowed, awaiting further court proceedings in the matter.

Officials confirm the investigation continues into this case.

Both have been in the paper more times than I care to remember. You'd think they'd get a clue......oh what was I thinking. You have to have a brain before you can get a clue!

And how is this Mr. Moran related to the other Moran that was just busted by the Feds? Hum......that is so impressive I just about can't stand it!!

If someone is arrested and already on probation,doesn't that person just go to jail,no trial? Wouldn't that save some taxpayer money?

Proud,

They are brothers. Both have children that are being taken care of with our tax dollars.So I guess they think they need us to take care of them also. As you read back this not neither boy's first rodeo with the law. I feel sorry for the children, the woman or women they were with it is their own faults they knew what they were all about. JMHO!

Thanks GemiCap6659, I figured they had to be related in some way as they look so much alike!

Interesting indeed and very sad......have your pets spayed and neutered! LOL

just 2 set the record sraight, chuck is the father of my grandson and his mother works 7 days a week 2 support him. So before u make a statement like that u should really gather ur facts.

SICK .. listen to yourself "Chuck is the father of my grandson and his MOTHER WORKS 7 DAYS A WEEK TO SUPPORT HIM". The facts speak for themselves.

The question is: "What causes a woman to gravitate towards a man who doesn't support his family?"

Both of these "men" are old enough to GO OUT AND FIND A JOB, instead of living off society, their 'women' or baby Mamas.

I WAS SIMPLY STATING THAT NOBODYS TAX DOLLARS TAKE CARE OF HIM. HIS MOTHER DOES. AND WE DONT WANT YOUR SYMPATHY. JUST BECAUSE THE FATHER IS WHO IS, AND TRUST ME IM NOT STICKING UP 4 HIM, BUT IT DOES NOT MEAN THAT THE MOTHERS R THE SAME WAY.
