Possession charges adjourned to grand jury

A trio of Romans busted in a series of early morning drug raids at the Pine Haven Trailer Park and Park Drive Manor will have their drug and weapons charges presented to a county grand jury.

Phillip F. Williams, 47, and Britney M. Rawlings, 25, both of 153 Pine Haven Circle, and Brandy L. Jaynes, 29, of 330 Park Drive Manor, all waived their felony exams before City Court Judge John C. Gannon on Friday. Their cases have been adjourned to the county level for possible indictments.

Williams is charged with two counts of third-degree possession of a controlled substance and third-degree possession of a weapon, as well as one count of fourth-degree possession of stolen property. Rawlings is charged with fourth-degree possession of a weapon and fourth-degree possession of stolen property. Jaynes is charged with two counts of third-degree possession of a controlled substance.

State police said they raided both residences on Dec. 13 and seized quantities of cocaine, crack cocaine, two loaded handguns and $2,000 cash. One of the handguns had been reported stolen, troopers said.
