Man Arrested For Hydrocodone, Liquid CodeineOct 22nd, 2013 | By Admin | Category: Front Page
Madison County Sheriff Ben Stewart reports that on Sunday, Oct. 20, Madison County Sheriff’s Office deputies conducted a traffic stop on Interstate 10 for a traffic infraction (exceeding 100 mph). The vehicle, a blue Dodge Charger, was traveling in an easterly direction and being driven by Christopher Renard Mobley, 30, of Jacksonville. When approaching the driver, deputies detected the odor of marijuana emitting from the interior of the car and the driver said he was not aware if anyone had been smoking marijuana in the car. A canine search of the exterior of the vehicle resulted in a positive alert to the interior of the vehicle. A complete search of the vehicle discovered marijuana shake on the seats and floorboard areas of the vehicle, prescription hydrocodone pills, eight ounces of liquid codeine in a baby bottle and a 9 mm handgun with standard 15-round magazine and an additional 30 round magazine. The driver claimed he had a prescription for the pills but could not produce one and randomly stated that some girls had left the “liquid candy” (liquid codeine). Mobley was taken into custody without further incident and transported to the Madison County Jail.
