The Jones County Sheriff’s Department nabbed a wanted person featured on their "Felon Friday" Facebook post.

Jason Scruggs was taken into custody Saturday afternoon after he surrendered himself to deputies at a residence in the Rustin Community, said the department in a press release.

"Scruggs was featured on JCSD's Facebook page, "Felon Friday" post, as a wanted subject just over 24 hours ago," stated the department.

He was being sought by JCSD narcotics agents on a charge of Sale of Methamphetamine.

The Jones County Sheriff's Department "Felon Friday" post via Facebook has garnered attention and has proven to be effective in assisting the department with finding wanted suspects.

At the time of the release, Scruggs was incarcerated at the Jones County Adult Detention Facility pending his initial appearance in Jones County Justice Court.
