Jury indicts dad, son

A father and son at whose home police found the weapon believed to have been used to murder Rickey Allen Gibson in April have been indicted on drug charges.

In a separate indictment, Clifford Caudill, who is charged with murdering Gibson and who police say pawned the gun to dispose of it, is also charged with possession of a handgun by a convicted felon and being a persistent felony offender.

Jeffrey Lyn Craft, 59, and Jeffrey Lyn Craft II, 40, are charged with one count each of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Craft II’s trafficking charge is listed as a first offense. Both charges are for allegedly trafficking in 2 or more grams of methamphetamine.

In addition, the father is charged with a first offense of trafficking in less than 8 ounces of marijuana and being a firstdegree persistent felony offender.

Police said they discovered the drugs when they went to the Craft home on Henry Hutton Drive in Neon to question the two about whether Caudill had given them a gun.

The grand jury also charged another man in an unrelated case.

Jeremy Gibson, 36, of 153 Loves Branch, Deane, is charged with criminal complicity to first-degree possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), and two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Gibson is accused of committing the crimes “alone or in complicity” with Creigory Pridemore, whose indictment was reported last week. Gibson is accused of possessing two glass pipes and a syringe, in addition to methamphetamines.
