    Raids and traffic stops lead to north Ga drug busts

    By Tim Bryant,


    Three quarters of a million dollars’ worth of drugs were confiscated in a raid on a home in Hall County. Arrested and charged is 36 year-old Daniel Hernandez. Drugs confiscated include marijuana, THC gummies, and psilocybin. The Hall County Sheriff’s Office and US Homeland Security took part in the operation.

    Drug agents say they uncovered two pounds of methamphetamine after a traffic stop in White County. Two suspects—a man from Gwinnett County and a woman from Forsyth County—were arrested and booked into the White County jail. Matthew Young is 41 years old, from Lawrenceville; 48 year-old Heather Rutledge is from Cumming.

    A man and woman are arrested after a raid on a home in Paulding County: the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office says illegal drugs and dozens of guns were found in the home in Temple. They say it was joint operation with the Haralson County Sheriffs’ Office and the GBI.
