Comments Off on Columbus police make major Methamphetamine bust Sunday on Edgewater Drive; Jessica Parsons, 31, and Bradford Ford, 38, of Columbus, arrested

An investigation lasting several months has culminated in two arrests and the seizure of what Capt. Gil Slouchick of the Columbus Police Department called Sunday a “significant” amount of methamphetamine.

Slouchick, commander of the department’s special operations unit, said the 2.91 pounds of methamphetamine is one of largest seizures he can recall here and that the street value is $132,196.

“It is a great conclusion to this investigation,” Slouchick said.

The warrant was served at 2 a.m. Sunday at 7508 Edgewater Drive.

Slouchick said, in addition to the methamphetamine, also seized at the scene was hydrocodone.

Arrested at the scene was Jessica Parsons, 31, of Columbus.

Taken into custody at a different location was Bradford Ford, 38, of Columbus.

Both were arrested without any resistance, Slouchick said.

Both will appear in Columbus Recorder’s Court at 9 a.m. Monday.

According to the Muscogee County Jail, both Parsons and Ford have been charged with trafficking methamphetamine, possession and use of drug related objects as well as possession, manufacture and distribution of a controlled substance.
