                                                       Traffic Violation Turns into Drug Arrest


Sheriff Jimmy Harris states as follows:


            On Saturday May 13th a DeKalb County K-9 Deputy pulled over a vehicle for a traffic violation on County Road 155 in Flat Rock. When the Deputy approached the vehicle the driver Jamie Shrader, 45 of Chattanooga Tennessee, told the Deputy that he had a Methamphetamine pipe in the vehicle. Shrader was asked to step out of the vehicle, the deputy then did search of the vehicle with K-9 Yogi and as a result 38 grams of ICE methamphetamine, 24 Ecstasy, 4 Xanax, a set of scales and 2 hideaway compartments were found. Shrader was then arrested and charged with Trafficking in any Illegal Drugs, 2 counts of Unlawful Possession of Controlled Substance and Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

               Chief Deputy Michael Edmondson says “This is just another example of how our K-9’s Yogi and Marianna work with our Deputies and they are working extremely hard to rid drugs in our County.

            I would also like for everyone especially parents to be aware of this drug Ecstasy that is circulating around our County. Its appearance is a rainbow of colors like the marshmallows in Lucky charms. This is a dangerous drug and we need to educate our children to stay away from it.”
