Jimmy Gunn was in poor health and concerned about his upcoming 30-day jail sentence for dealing pot, say friends. Perhaps he had a premonition: Nine days after entering the Albemarle Charlottesville Regional Jail, he was dead.
After he sold marijuana to an undercover officer, the Jefferson Area Drug Enforcement Task Force raided his house and found approximately four pounds of pot in dozens of plastic baggies, according to an inventory that went to a forensic lab. An old shotgun added a felony possession of a firearm charge.
