On 3/15/2019 at about 2 p.m. a McMinnville Officer saw Seth Jones, who had a valid felony warrant for probation violation, driving a vehicle into Tice Rotary Park located at 2761 NE Baker Street in McMinnville, OR. The officer contacted Jones as he exited the car and arrested him on the warrant. During the contact one of McMinnville PD’s narcotics canine, Jack, alerted to his handler that there were illegal narcotics in the car.
After Jack alerted on the car Seth Jones gave officers permission to search. That search subsequently yielded a loaded .22 caliber handgun, 41 grams of crystal methamphetamine, digital scales, .9 grams of tar heroin, drug transaction records and $865 in cash.
Jones was charged with:
Felony warrant arrest for probation violation – No Bail
Unlawful distribution of methamphetamine – $500,000 bail
Unlawful possession of methamphetamine – $7,500 bail
Possession of weapon by a felon – $7,500 bail
A substantial quantity of narcotic, in this case over 10 grams of methamphetamine, enhances the bail of the A Felony to $500,000. Jones was lodged in the Yamhill County jail.
