Former Reb Arrested

(C-L)Houston Rockets forward Justin Reed has been charged with marijuana possession following a joint operation between Hinds County and Jackson narcotics officers.

Reed, 25, was arrested by the Hinds County Sheriff’s Department late Tuesday in the front yard of a house on Chennault Avenue.

Reed posted a $500 bond and was released around 3 a.m. today.

Capt. Ken Magee said deputies likely were following up on a report of drug activity when they went to the house.

“It was a known drug location. He (Reed) was approached and found to have a small bag of marijuana in his hand,” Magee said. The amount was less than an ounce.

Two others were arrested at that house by Jackson Police Department narcotics officers. Their names were not immediately available.

Reed, a former standout at Provide High School and Ole Miss, left the Hinds County Detention Center early today after being booked.
