A traffic stop conducted by DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office Deputies and Investigators, along with Officers from both the Sylvania and Henagar Police Departments resulted in the arrest of four individuals. That stop was made Monday in the Henagar area and the occupants of that vehicle included 20 year old Christian Chase Holland of Pisgah; Michael Alexander Glass, age 21 of Henagar; in addition to Hannah Leah Fordham age 20 and Courtney Danielle Priest age 21, both from Griffin, Georgia.
After a K-9 “Alert” on the vehicle a search was conducted that turned up methamphetamine along with drug paraphernalia and two handguns.
All four individuals were arrested and then taken to the DeKalb County Detention Center to be charged with Unlawful Distribution of a Controlled Substance with Carrying a Concealed Weapon and with Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
Chief Deputy Edmondson says “These arrests were the result of a large officer presence in the Henagar – Sylvania area due to the rash of burglaries that have been taking place. All of these officers did a great job on being observant during this traffic stop.”
Chief of Sylvania Police Department says “We here at the Sylvania Police Department work closely with the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Deputies and Investigators, DeKalb County Drug and Major Crimes Unit, and Henagar and Rainsville Police Departments. I want to thank them for all of their help and support during these break-ins and thanks to all that have assisted. We look forward to working with them in bringing all that are responsible for these break-ins to justice. I also want to say a special thanks to Chief Deputy Michael Edmondson, Chief of Rainsville Police Kevin Smith and Chief of Henagar Randall Smith for everything that they have done.”
