According to an incident report filed with the East Ellijay Police Department, an arrest was made on Demarcus Antonio Hobson, 22, and Zachariah Nicely, 18, at 1:40am on November 1 after a traffic stop led to discovery of drugs in the vehicle.
Lieutenant Shane Bowman has reported that both suspects could face similar charges including Possession of Firearms During a Crime, Possession of Cocaine, and Possession of Marijuana over an Ounce.
Within the Incident Report, Officer Tommy Long stated he “observed a vehicle traveling North on Highway 515 in the area of First Avenue failing to maintain its lane of travel.”
As he proceeded to stop the vehicle, he noticed a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicles and both men inside the vehicle acting nervously which led to him calling an additional officer, Tony Heath, for backup.
Between the two officers, the report has indicated several drugs located in and around the vehicle including Marijuana, Crack Cocaine, Powder Cocaine, and Xanax Bars.
Though both denied knowledge of the drugs, they were taken into custody without incident.
