Jeff City Public Works Director is charged
Jefferson City's public works director Michael L. Jones, 61, of Rutledge has been charged with simple possession of cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia, records show. He was issued a misdemeanor citation. Jones allegedly pulled a baggie of cocaine from his pocket earlier this month when he was approached by several officers at his place of employment. The officers say they also found another baggie in Jones' vehicle in the parking lot. Jefferson City Police Chief Andy Dossett had reportedly opened an investigation into Jones after receiving reports of cocaine use. Chief Dossett and other officers then reportedly confronted Jones. at which time he pulled a baggie from his pants pocket and told the officers the contents was cocaine. The baggie and cocaine weighed 0.66 grams, according to police. Police say a "cut straw" used for snorting cocaine was found in Jones' desk drawer. Officers also seized the manager's office computer and two phones, as part of the investigation.
