KINGSPORT — An 85-year-old woman has been jailed after SWAT descended on her Kingsport home — marking her second arrest related to drug distribution in four years.

At approximately 7:30 Tuesday night a search warrant was executed at 1138 Fairview Ave., the home of Pearl M. Jones. KPD Public information officer Tom Patton says vice detectives obtained the warrant as the result of an ongoing drug investigation.

With authorization to search both the residence and Jones, who was present, police allegedly located "a quantity" of hydrocodone. Patton said it was in the form of Lortab pills.
