Bond Denied on 9 of 12 Drug & Firearm Charges

Bond was denied yesterday on 9 drug and firearm charges served on a man arrested by Clinton Public Safety Monday afternoon. Public Safety Officer Josh Byers was traveling Westbound on Bond Street at 3:47 pm when he reportedly observed Jamarcus Tribble walking Eastbound and identified him from dealing with him during a previous incident. Tribble reportedly began to walk up to a house in the 100 block when Officer Byers turned his patrol car around and parked, approaching on foot. The officer placed Tribble into investigative detention due to concern about a bulge in his pants that was reportedly determined to be a handgun. Jamarcus Tribble was also wanted for active warrants.

A report notes a stolen .40-caliber pistol was recovered,  and  Public Safety reports seizing two baggies containing cocaine and one plastic baggie containing powdered cocaine, for a total of 8.70 grams of cocaine. Officers also reported seizing a plastic baggie containing .39 gram of crystal meth and a plastic baggie containing .64 gram of marijuana.

From items found Monday afternoon, 19-year-old Jamarcus Raheem Tribble of 462 Indian Mound Road, Laurens was charged with Possession of Cocaine with Intent to Distribute, Possession of Methamphetamine, Possession of a Stolen Pistol and Unlawful Carrying of a Concealed Weapon. Bond was denied on these four counts. Tribble was also issued three tickets noting charges from Simple Possession of Marijuana to Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. $620 PR bonds were set on these.

In addition to the four new warrants served from Monday afternoon, Public Safety served five active warrants from Sgt. Prather for alleged activity earlier this year. Tribble was charged with Conspiracy to Distribute Crack Cocaine for allegedly conspiring with an individual to distribute crack on North Bell Street March 3rd.
