Drug bust

Two people were arrested in connection with a significant drug bust on Thursday of last week on Doublehead Road.

Officers went to 2095 Doublehead Rd. to question a resident there. When they arrived, there was a Honda CR-V parked at the house with three people inside.

A backseat passenger, Clifford Lane Brown, 38, of Hogansville, Ga., had a gun in his hand. Wadley Police Chief Tyler Murphy told Brown to drop it and he complied. As Brown was being removed from the vehicle, three people came out of the residence, along with the odor of marijuana.

Officers got a search warrant and returned. Multiple drug-related items were found inside the residence and inside the Honda.

The resident of the home, Ryan Lee Royston, 47, is charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Brown, the man in the car, is charged with trafficking methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, second-degree possession of marijuana and carrying a pistol without a permit.

Sheriff David Cofield said just under 100 grams of methamphetamine were on the premises. He explained that the home was not a meth lab. The form of meth found is known as "ice." It looks like broken glass and is not made locally but brought in.

Also arrested at this scene was Marion Alexander Williams, 34, of 488 County Rd. 650, Rock Mills. He is charged with first-degree receiving stolen property and failure to appear in court (unlawful possession of a controlled substance and attempt to purchase ephedrine).
