Three people were arrested on drug charges recently following an anonymous call regarding a welfare check on a juvenile at a residence on Buddy Moore Road.
Anthony Wayne Waldrop, 33, 512 Diamond Hill Colbert Road, Colbert, was charged with possession of a Schedule II controlled substance and possession and use of drug-related objects.
Kimberly Gail Williamson, 43, 4904 Cedar Court, Conyers, was charged with possession of a Schedule II controlled substance, possession of a Schedule IV controlled substance, possession of drug-related objects and obstruction.
Cynthia Ann Edwards, 22, 74 Buddy Moore Road, Lot 9, Colbert, was charged with possession and use of drug-related objects and a probation violation.
According to the incident report, the caller told officer Brandon Moss that there had been a lot of drug activity involving several people at this residence. Moss went to the residence to check on the child, whom he noted in his report appeared to be “fine.”
As Moss left the home, he noticed a white male walking toward a white female standing near a fence with a black bag. Moss said he knew the woman (Edwards) lived at the residence he just left. She said she and the man were walking to a friend’s house. Moss asked if he could search her bag and she consented. Inside the bag he found a syringe, which Edwards claimed was not hers, but had been put in the bag by someone else.
While they were talking, a vehicle pulled up behind the patrol car and Edwards identified the occupants as her friends who were coming to pick her up. Moss noted that the passenger (Williamson) appeared to be under the influence and had slurred speech. The driver (Waldrop) gave Moss permission to search the vehicle. As they got out, Williamson tucked something in her pants and when Moss questioned her, she began to cry and grabbed items from her purse, including several baggies, and started throwing them on the ground. She tried to walk away but was apprehended by Moss, who handcuffed her following a short struggle. During the struggle, a pill bottle fell out of her pants leg. A search of the vehicle produced a silver pipe and spoon and a small glass pipe with a white residue. Both occupants denied any knowledge of the items in the car.
All three were taken to jail.
