XENIA — A Xenia man is facing 19 felony drug charges after the Greene County ACE Task Force set up several drug buys.
Phillip E. Jackson, 32, was arrested at Lexington Park June 27 and indicted by a Grand Jury July 5, charged with multiple counts of aggravated trafficking drugs, and aggravated possession of drugs including methamphetamine, cocaine, and hashish according to the indictment.
