Two men suspected of selling drugs in Jackson are on the run and police are asking for your help in finding them.

Police are searching for Jamahl Armstrong, 48, and Dwayne Riley, 28, (pictured above left to right) who both have arrest warrants issued for transporting and selling narcotics in Jackson County. 

They are wanted for unrelated crimes.

Armstrong was originally arrested after a police chase on Oct. 3 in the Jackson High School parking lot, just before school let out.

Police say he jumped from his vehicle and threw a half-pound of methamphetamine on school property.
The suspected drug dealer who led police on a chase through the Jackson High School parking lot last week was arraigned on four felony charges.

Armstrong was arraigned days later on one felony count each of delivery of methamphetamine, possession of a firearm by a felon, fleeing and eluding police and assaulting or resisting police, records show.

He bonded out and was released from jail on a GPS tether, which he later cut off and has not been seen since, according to Jackson Narcotics Enforcement Team Commander First Lt. Derrick White. 

Riley is wanted on two felony counts of delivery or manufacturing of a controlled substance, felon in possession of a firearm, felon in possession of ammunition and felony firearms.

His warrant stems from a JNET investigation and search warrant in May where police located firearms and heroin, White said.

Riley is also believed to have been the driver during two recent pursuits with police in which he drove so recklessly, police were forced to end the chases.

Anyone with information on Armstrong or Riley’s whereabouts are encouraged to call JNET at 517-784-2990. Callers can remain anonymous.
