Jackson police score another drug bust. It happened Tuesday after a search warrant was served on a Jackson apartment.

Police have arrested Frisco Hill and Christopher Oliver. Both men are charged with possession of marijuana with intent to deliver and possession of narcotics.

Police displayed a tabled filled with cash, weapons, a bullet proof vest and drugs at JPD Headquarters Wednesday.

Narcotics agents seized four pounds of marijuana as well as two automatic pistols and about $4,000 dollars in cash. They say the men had been under surveillance for some time. One was arrested during a routine traffic stop.

According to Vice and Narcotics Sergeant Dee McClendon, "I think it shows a big part in showing our effort in trying to take drugs and guns and narcotics off the stress. A bust this size could easily lead us to something bigger."

Several units within the Jackson Police Department were involved in the search and seizure. Both suspects were considered armed and dangerous.
