Complaints about illegal activity at Indian Mountain State Park in Jellico prompted action by the Campbell County Sheriff’s Department last week.

Detective Mike Perkins was patrolling in an unmarked county vehicle when he drove through the state park looking for suspicious activity, said Sheriff Gary Perkins.

Three people sitting in a vehicle parked off the side of the road were allegedly observed holding syringes, according to Mike Perkins.

Jerry Wayne Jones Sr., 60, and Jerry Wayne Jones Jr., 28, both of Williamsburg, KY., allegedly held syringes loaded with a clear substance, said Perkins.

Deanna Jane Moses, 38, also of Williamsburg, KY., was sitting in the passenger seat of the vehicle. Her syringe had allegedly already been emptied, according to reports.

Each of the defendants also had in their possession a plastic bag of white powder believed to be cocaine, the arrest report said.

The vehicle was sitting in the back of the park, less than 50 yards from a playground, said Perkins.

Jones Sr., Jones Jr., and Moses were placed under arrest and charged with possession of schedule II controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

They were each released the following day with a bond of $2,500.

Perkins stated that drug activity in a state park, a drug free area, increased the charges to felony possession.
