21-year-old Jakeb Jordan was charged with possession of marijuana, public intoxication, and open container laws after deputies located an open alcoholic beverage in his vehicle and leafy substance inside of an Altoids container.
On November 19th, Stewart County Sheriff’s Deputy Trenton Hearndon responded to reports of a suspicious person at 3852 Cadiz Road. The deputy was informed that a white Ford F150 had pulled into the complainant’s back yard.

After Jakeb was read his Miranda rights, he stated he had consumed alcohol and marijuana. He claimed he was unable to walk to the patrol vehicle on his own.
