Three arrested at GRACE Marketplace with a child and drugs in the car
BY JENNIFER CABRERA
GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Minleshia Renee Janece Jackson, 28; Andria Mychelle Lamari White, 29; and Michael Donavon Wright, 26, were arrested last night and charged with various drug charges. Jackson was also charged with child neglect because her 8-year-old was “in an environment where dangerous narcotics were present and accessible.”
A Gainesville Police Department officer made contact with a black Chrysler at GRACE Marketplace at about 6:15 p.m. following an anonymous tip that the car’s occupants might be involved in narcotics activity.
The officer reported that as he approached the car, White jumped out of the driver’s seat and said she had called the police. The officer noted that Wright was in the front passenger seat, and Jackson and an 8-year-old child were in the back seat. The officer wrote that he could see a smoked “roach blunt” in plain view on the center console, and White reportedly said she had smoked marijuana earlier in the car.
The officer reported finding 8.47 grams of MDPV; 11.8 grams of “spice,” a synthetic cannabinoid; a digital scale; and multiple baggies in a probable-cause search. Another officer reportedly found 2.3 grams of marijuana in the door next to Wright. Jackson reportedly said she had marijuana in her purse, and 1.88 grams of marijuana were found, along with a small amount of MDPV.
Post Miranda, Wright denied ownership or knowledge of anything in the car.
Post Miranda, White reportedly said Wright had brought the spice into the car and that it was his. She said she had dropped off Jackson and the child at GRACE to do their laundry, and she and Wright had left. White said Wright told her she could make some easy money, so they drove to Pineridge, where she said Wright went into an apartment and came out with the substance found in the center console; she said she didn’t know what it was. She said they drove back to GRACE, where Jackson and the child got back into the car. She reportedly added that the marijuana in the door next to Wright was hers.
Post Miranda, Jackson reportedly said the substance in her purse was “molly” and that she had used it at GRACE while her son was playing basketball and she was supposed to be supervising him. She reportedly denied knowledge of the drugs, other than the molly and marijuana that were found in her purse.
Jackson was charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana, and child neglect without great bodily harm. She has no local criminal history, and her bail information is unavailable.
White was charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell and possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana. She has three felony convictions and has served one state prison sentence for robbery. Judge Susan Miller-Jones set bail at $75,500.
Wright was charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell. He is also facing a sworn complaint for domestic battery on January 18 and had an active warrant for violation of probation on a previous conviction for possession of a controlled substance. Wright has five felony convictions, has served one state prison sentence, and has three violations of probation. He is being held without bond for violating probation, and Judge Susan Miller-Jones added bail of $85,000 on the new charges.

Ok dam enough of this place it’s time to close it
So, apparently word on the street is you can buy drugs instead of food and shelter for your kids here. And even think GRACE is a plausible alternative. Wonder why they thought that? 🤡👹🤬
That Andria white is the police pretty sure she working cause every situation she in she telling on the other party like darn give them people to tell on they self at lease Jackson had her child cause ms white have not one of her 9 sad
This made absolutely no sense. English please.
Need to bone up on your ebonics….
Gilberto & Lou: you guys are funny…I like it when it’s true & funny…thanks for the laugh!😃
She said she thinks Andria is a police plant because she always turns on the others involved. She also said at least Jackson had her kid while White doesn’t have any of her 9 kids and it’s sad. – or I’m pretty sure that’s a close translation
They’re all clowns. They deserve everything they get.
😂😂😂😂English language please
At least they weren’t leaving the child with a pedophile drug dealer for a while in exchange for drugs. I wouldn’t rule that out as a possibility at disGRACE.
Again, time to shut down that 💩-hole of Grace marketplace!!
It’s a thieve and drug haven…they should all be piss tested in order to enter. It should be immediately closed down, all inhabitants moved out. Then it should be reopened in 30 days with only 3 days temporarily emergency help so you can get back on your feet if you were having some tough times and a one way ticket on the greyhound back to your hometown…it should not be a permanent flop house bum and thief magnet destination for vagrants everywhere on the planet to come to…GNV cannot be “the big rock candy mountain”…
Grace Market Place is nothing but another legal drug house, with a drug playground around need to shut the whole thing down, but that’s Gainesville and Alachua Co for ya.
parachute in a duffel bag of fentanyl, let darwin take care of it!
She wasted her money on drugs instead of going to her mommas house or the laundry mat…where’s the baby daddy?
Y’all put y’all mouth on people without even knowing the half my god bless you while u make jokes about some serious as that but trust and believe me God has me thank you be bless🙏💜
Everyone is ignoring the fact that the one gal was dropped off at Grace to do her laundry….lol. It must be free to do laundry there, so the Pine Ridge folk go on up and do a couple loads throughout the day. What a joke Grace is!!
Pine Ridge must be government assisted section 8 affordable housing…washers and dryers are not included in the deal.
The usual suspects….
