Six arrested on variety of gang, drug, weapon and other charges

STAFF REPORT :::

A traffic stop has resulted in multiple arrests on gang, drug, firearms and a variety of other charges.

According to a press release issued by Spalding County Sheriff Darrell Dix, the traffic stop was conducted by personnel of the Criminal Apprehension and Gang Enforcement Unit.

Dix said the deputies knew the driver, Jacob Henley, had outstanding felony warrants for his arrest.

Officials say the C.A.G.E. Unit agents made contact with Henley, Sherry Alloway and Charles Redding, and took Henley into custody. At that time, deputies reported noting the odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle.

Dix said a subsequent search of the vehicle’s passenger compartment resulted in the discovery of synthetic marijuana and actual marijuana, along with digital scales.
This led to the arrest of the vehicle’s other occupants.

Through interviews and surveillance, investigators were able to link the vehicle and Henley to a residence located at 298 Hosanna Road, Dix said, adding that it resulted in the seizure of a quantity of methamphetamine, digital scales and other drug related objects and a stolen firearm.

Arrests and charges include:
Jacob Henley, possession of Schedule I controlled substance, possession of Schedule I controlled substance with the intent to distribute, possession of drug related objects, possession of methamphetamine, theft by receiving stolen property, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, disorderly house, driving on a suspended license, open container, failure to maintain lane, and violations of the Criminal Street Gang Act. This is in addition to warrants for possession of methamphetamine and Violation of the Criminal Street Gang Act.

Sidney Jordan, possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug related objects, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, false name and date of birth of two counts of violation of probation.

Charles Redding, charged with possession of Schedule I controlled substance, possession of Schedule I controlled substance with intent to distribute, possession of drug related objects and misdemeanor possession of marijuana.

Brittany Patton, possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug related objects and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Sherry Alloway, possession of a Schedule I controlled substance, possession of a Schedule I controlled substance with intent to distribute, possession of drug related of objects and permitting an unlicensed driver to operate a motor vehicle.

Keyondria Guider, possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug related objects and failure to appear.

“Henley is a well-known, well-documented gang member that has been selling narcotics and committing other crimes in our community for years. He has an extensive arrest and conviction record that reflects that fact and yet he continues to plague this community. Because of his record and disregard of the law we have requested that he be granted no bond until his court date. Records show that he was out on bond when he committed these new crimes,” Dix said. “This was the second time this year that Special Operations has been to this particular residence for narcotics investigations and made arrests.  As I have stated in the past, gang members and their illegal activities are no longer welcome in Spalding County and we will arrest them in bunches or one at a time if we have to. Henley chose not to heed the warnings given to him by this community and through multiple convictions through the criminal justice system. He has now been given the opportunity to meet our Gang Unit and become more familiar with our Special Operations Unit. We will continue to enforce the law, day or night, and will continue to pursue gang members, drug dealers and those that assist them regardless of where they live or who they know, or who they think they are. The law is clear on the subject and my warning is clear – you can stop or we will stop you.”
