The Banks County Sheriff’s Office investigators netted five drug arrests after executing two search warrants at local residences last week.
Sheriff Charles Chapman said on Wednesday, March 11, investigators conducted a search at a residence at 596 John Morris Road, Maysville.
Three people at the home were arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.
Those arrested were: Ronald Lee Coley, 50, Route 1, Box 383, Alto; and Patsy Jean Waldron, 48, and Reynolds Lemar Waldron, 50, both of 596 John Morris Road, Maysville.
Chapman said, during the search, around one-half ounce of suspected methamphetamine and one-half ounce of marijuana was seized. Also seized was scales, other drug-related items and $3,500 in cash.
Two of the people arrested were transported to the Banks County jail for booking and to appear before the chief magistrate for bond, Chapman said. The third person was out of town at the time of the search. He turned himself in early Monday morning, Chapman said.
BCSO investigators continue their investigation into this case.
Chapman said after an investigation by BCSO investigators, a search warrant was obtained and executed on Friday, March 13, at a resident at 145 Loggins Road, Commerce.
Three people were arrested in connection with this search warrant. Those arrested and their charges include: Brett Will Carroll, 25, and Ashley Nicole Guest, 22, both of 145 Loggins Road, Commerce, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute; and Jessica Lynn Latty, 21, 2180 Apple Valley Road, Commerce, possession of marijuana.
Another male person at the residence was charged on a warrant out of Jackson County, Chapman said.
Officers seized 4.87 ounces of marijuana, much of which was packaged for sale, scales for weighing the marijuana and “baggies” for packaging the drug.
The Banks County Department of Family and Children Services were also notified because of two young children that were in the home at the time of the search, Chapman said.
All three charged were transported to the Banks County jail for booking.
