A disturbance call and complaints from the drug hotline led to the arrest of a Jacksboro resident over the weekend.

On Feb. 13, Jacksboro Police Officer Jeremy Goins was dispatched to 229 Water Street on the report of a disturbance, the arrest report said. After arriving, Goins spoke with the homeowner, Jamshid Wayne Nikzad, 27, of Jacksboro.

Goins said he observed around 10 people inside the house, and based upon complaints to the drug hotline regarding the alleged sale of narcotics from the residence he obtained permission to search the home, the Jacksboro arrest report said.

Goins allegedly located a baggie containing a green leafy substance and a large device used to smoke marijuana in the back bedroom of the residence. Nikzad allegedly admitted that the marijuana and the smoking device belonged to him, Goins’ report said.

Nikzad was arrested and transported to the county jail and held on $359.50 bond. He was cited and released the same day. Nikzad has a court date set for Feb. 19.
