JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Eleven people, including a mom and two sons, have been sentenced Friday following a year-long methamphetamine distribution conspiracy that had ties to several First Coast cities.
Audrey Jenkins, 44, and her two sons, Marcelle Jenkins, 25, and George Jenkins, 27, from Alma, Georgia, supplied pure crystal meth to nine individuals, according to court documents. The individuals then would distribute the meth to others in both south Georgia and North Florida, a press release said.
Tina Rayos, 44, and Michelle Ryder, 43, from Fernandina Beach, Melinda Reeves, 38, from Jacksonville, and Lena Davis, 40, from Waycross were among those arrested.
Police said Marcelle Jenkins was arrested on Jan. 9, 2016, and continued to run the drug organization from cell phones that were smuggled into the jail he was at in Bacon County, Georgia.
During the investigation, law enforcement seized multiple ounces of meth that they determined were 99 percent pure.
