Johnson City police charged a man with drug offenses and resisting arrest Tuesday morning after finding crack cocaine during an investigation on Wilson Avenue.
Jason L. Avery, 883 W Main St. Apt. 202, was arrested at 410 Wilson Avenue during an investigation into a schedule II drug violation, police said in a news release.
It was the second time in less than three months that Avery had been arrested at that address.
In a report, police said officers made contact with Avery because he was in the vicinity of a business that had been burglarized. Police noticed a glass pipe in Avery's hand, and he began to "actively resist" officers after he was told to drop the pipe.
Police found four packages of crack cocaine on Avery, according to the report. Charged with a schedule II drug violation (distributing/selling crack cocaine), possession of unlawful drug paraphernalia and resisting arrest, Avery was jailed in the Washington County Detention Center on $12,000 bond pending a Sessions Court appearance later Tuesday.
On Sept. 2, Avery was arrested after police responded to a disturbance call at the same address.
Police reported that they saw two men walking toward the street from behind the house and found that one of the men had been assaulted. According to a court document filed by police, the victim reported that he had been assaulted and robbed of $3, his wallet and his cell phone by Avery and another unknown man.
