(Spencer)-- A Greenville man was arrested on drug charges after authorities executed a search warrant June 12th.

The Clay County Sheriff's Office says Justin Ries was charged with possession with intent to deliver over 5 grams of methamphetamine, possession of a controlled substance...marijuana, and failure to affix a drug tax stamp. He was booked into the Clay county jail on a $25,000 cash only bond.
