WATERTOWN — More than 300 grams of methamphetamine, 14 grams of cocaine and 65 bags of heroin were seized Wednesday as part of an investigation by the Metro-Jefferson Drug Task Force.

The seizure resulted in the arrest of Cody A. Jones, 33, of 734 Gotham St. He is charged with second-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and was held in jail after an arraignment hearing. Additional arrests and charges are pending.

At about 2 p.m. Wednesday, members of the drug task force executed a search warrant at Mr. Jones’s residence. He had been the subject of a monthslong drug investigation, according to the task force.

When the task force members entered, two women and two children were inside. They were secured without incident. As part of the investigation, a vehicle stop was conducted on a 2003 Dodge pickup truck driven by Mr. Jones, who was detained along with a passenger with him.

By the end of the search, 300.8 grams of meth, 14.2 grams of cocaine, 70 bags of heroin, a bottle of liquid morphine, 29.8 grams of molly, a money counter, digital scales, packaging materials, $1,707 in cash and a .22-caliber handgun with 42 rounds of ammunition were seized.

The task force was assisted by the Watertown police road patrol and identification unit, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office and the Drug Enforcement Administration.

What’s with ‘molly?’ I’m not hip enough because I had to look up what it was. Ecstasy and MDMA I’ve heard of.
