Newton Grove Man Arrested On Drugs, Weapons Charges

A 22-year-old Newton Grove man faces weapons and drug charges after he was stopped by Sampson County Sheriff's deputies this week. Marcus Antwan Jacobs was charged with possession of a firearm by a felon, carrying a concealed weapon and marijuana possession. The Chevrolet Caprice Jacobs was driving was stopped by deputies for a routine traffic stop. A drug-sniffing dog reportedly identified marijuana in the vehicle, which was found during a search by the deputy. No stranger to authorities, Jacobs has already served time in prison for armed robbery, possession of firearm by a felon and breaking and entering. The robbery conviction stemmed from a 2004 holdup at a Clinton convenience store.
