4 Juveniles Arrested for Possession of Marijuana and a 9mm Handgun at a Local Middle School

On April 26th, 2017 Deputy Ryan Quibell, the acting School Resource Officer at Chestnut Log Middle School, became involved in an investigation that resulted in a tip from an anonymous source that a student was in possession of a handgun. This tip was received late in the day just prior to the students being released for the day. A search by school officials revealed that a 14 year old male student did have in his possession a loaded 9mm handgun as well as an amount of marijuana packaged for sale as well as an undisclosed amount of U.S. Currency. The juvenile was taken into custody at that time. Deputy Quibell continued the investigation the following day and learned that there were three other male juvenile students at the school that were involved with attempting to distribute the marijuana that was seized the day before. These four juveniles were also involved with distributing marijuana on at least one prior occasion to 4/26/2017. All four juveniles were arrested for numerous offenses including the possession of the handgun, possession of the handgun during a drug transaction, possessing the weapon on school grounds, use of a communications facility to further a drug crime, conspiracy to distribute marijuana on school grounds, and RICO. The names of the juveniles are being withheld because of their age.

Sheriff Tim Pounds encourages everyone to use our mobile app (available for Apple and Android) to report crimes both in the community and in the school system.

Patrol Division

Sheriff Tim Pounds and the Douglas County Sheriff's Office hosted the April meeting of the Western Regional Traffic Enforcement Network (WRTEN) last night. After the meeting, several different agencies including the Georgia State Patrol and the Douglasville Police Department conducted a traffic safety checkpoint at the exit ramp of I-20 at Lee Rd. Deputies and officers were primarily looking for impaired drivers, and there were several DUI arrests by the time the safety checkpoint wrapped up. We encourage everyone to designate a sober driver, buckle up, don't text and drive, and keep it under the speed limit.

Large-Scale Drug Trafficking Organization Busted:

In early February 2017, the Douglas County Sheriff's Office Narcotics Division identified a major drug trafficking organization originating in Douglas County and operating in Douglas, Fulton, and Cobb Counties. Investigators identified multiple individuals, who were distributing trafficking amounts of Methamphetamine across the West Georgia region. As a result of this case, a large-scale operation has been dismantled. We estimate this organization is responsible for bringing and distributing in excess of 50lbs of methamphetamine in a two-month period.

On April 19-20, 2017, the Douglas County Sheriff's office conducted raids/search warrants that produced multiple pounds of methamphetamine, marijuana, US currency and real property. This is an on-going investigation and more arrest/searches are forthcoming.

Sheriff Tim Pounds would like to thank the Georgia State Patrol, Fulton County Police Department, MCS (Marietta Cobb Smyrna task force), and all of our deputies and investigators who have worked tirelessly around the clock to help bring down this major drug organization distributing narcotics in our community.
