Mercer County Drug Arrests

Posted: Updated:

Three people were arrested in Mercer County on drug related charges. Detectives got a tip that 25 year old Jessica Landon was at a home in Mendon, she was wanted on a bench warrant for failing a drug test while out of jail on bond. When they got access to the home, they found 22 year old Jaqualine Smith, who was also wanted on a warrant and 20 year-old Zachary Lentz who was on parole.

Deputies found heroin in a pocket of Lentz's pants, and they found opiates and marijuana in Landon and Smith's system. Sheriff Grey says heroin is a serious problem, and will continue the battle against the drug with testing and pursuing criminal charges against people who harbor the individuals or provide them money for heroin.
