JACKSON, MO (KFVS) -

A Jackson, Missouri woman was charged in connection with a shoplifting investigation.

Genny M. Jones, 28, was charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance, unlawful use of drug paraphernalia and stealing.

According to Scott County Sheriff Rick Walter, on Sunday, Dec. 14 around 5:45 p.m. a deputy responded to the Dollar Store in Oran, Mo. in reference to shoplifting.

Before the deputy arrived, Sheriff Walter said the business told them the suspects had left and were going toward Chaffee on State Highway 77 in a blue Ford Ranger with Missouri registration.

He said the deputy found the truck and pulled it over. The deputy then identified the driver as Jones.

Jones told the deputy she and a male passenger were returning from Sikeston and gave the deputy permission to search the truck.

According to Sheriff Walter, the deputy recovered items stolen from the store during the search.

In addition, the deputy allegedly found pills identified as a Schedule 4 controlled substance and were believed to be drug paraphernalia.

Sheriff Walter said a review of the store's surveillance system was done and the video supported the allegations.

Jones and her passenger were arrested and taken to the Scott County Jail.

The man was booked and later released on a summons to appear on the misdemeanor charge of stealing.

Jones remains at the jail. Her bond was set at $2,000 cash only.
