Twenty arrested in Fourth of July Week Saturation

On Monday (June 29, 2020), DeKalb County Deputies, Investigators, and Narcotics Agents conducted a saturation operation in several different areas of the county.

The arrests were a result of increased patrols around Cartersville, Ider, Henagar, Powell, Geraldine, Crossville, Painter, Whiton, and Kilpatrick. Those arrested were found to be in possession of narcotics, were driving under the influence, had outstanding warrants with DeKalb County, or warrants with outside agencies.

Also during the night, Marijuana, Ecstasy (MDMA), Illegal Prescription Pills, and Drug Paraphernalia were found at a residence on County Road 18.

Christopher Richey (26 of Fyffe) was charged with Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance (x3), Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Unlawful Possession of Marijuana 2nd Degree.

Sheriff Welden said regarding the saturation: "Our guys did a great job keeping our roads safe on Monday night! They got a lot of dangerous drugs and criminals off of our roadways. We'll be having more of these operations in the future."

"Saturations are a great tool to help keep criminal activity in check and our roadways safer for law-abiding citizens. This is just the start of what we are planning this summer!" He said.

"God Bless!" Concluded Sheriff Welden.
