Man arrested on multiple drug charges

 

NATCHEZ — A Natchez man is behind bars and faces several drug charges after Adams County Sheriff’s Office deputies said they found crack cocaine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia in his residence while executing a routine search warrant Tuesday morning.

Kendrick Smith of 104 Creek St., Natchez, faces charges of possession of schedule II drugs, crack cocaine with intent to deliver, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana less than 30 grams, said Lt. Cal Green of the Adams County Sheriff’s Office.

“Upon making entry into the residence,” Green said of Tuesday’s search warrant, “Smith was in the living room area and complied with commands. During a search of the residence, officers located approximately 10 grams of crack cocaine in the kitchen cabinet, less than 30 grams of marijuana in the kitchen, three sets of digital scales, a cell phone on the couch and $1,440 in U.S. currency on Smith’s person.”

Green said Smith is currently out on bond after he was arrested and charged in Adams County on Dec. 12 with possession of a controlled substance, cocaine, possession of marijuana, possession of Xanax and possession of a stolen firearm.

Green said Smith bonded out on those charges Dec. 20.

Smith also is currently out on bond for felony drug charges in Lake Charles, Louisiana, and felony charges in Alexandria, Louisiana, Green said.
