A Mississippi man faces misdemeanor drug charges, but a felony was tacked on because of someone else in the vehicle.

Anthony Joel Jones, 34, was parked at a Tupelo business last week when police made contact with him. Police seized alleged fentanyl from the Booneville man.

An 8-year-old child was also in the car. The Mississippi Department of Child Protective Services helped arrange the release of the child to family.
