A Gainesville man faces nine different charges relating to the possession of seven different drugs.

Jermaine McKenzie Jackson, 34, was arrested and booked Thursday into Hall County Jail. On July 3, Jackson’s High Street residence was searched, leading to the seizure of marijuana, methamphetamines, cocaine, Vyvanse, Adderall, Percocet, alprazolam, oxycodone, scales and packaging materials. Multi-Agency Narcotics Squad investigators estimate the value of the seized drugs to be $3,030.

Jackson faces six charges of drug possession with intent to distribute, in connection with marijuana, methamphetamine, cocaine, Vyvanse, Adderall and Percocet.

On Thursday, Jackson’s home was searched again by members of MANS, who reported they seized more methamphetamines, marijuana and alprazolam. An estimated $450 or more was seized during the second search, along with digital and mechanical scales.

Following the second search, Jackson was charged with possession of methamphetamine and possession of marijuana, along with another charge of possession of alprazolam with intent to distribute.

Additional warrants are being sought for possession of alprazolam and oxycodone with the intent to distribute, according to a MANS statement.

Alprazolam is commonly associated with the drug Xanax, while Vyvanse and Adderall are considered amphetamines. Percocet, a mixture of the opioid oxycodone and acetaminophen, is classified as a narcotic.
