The Spalding County Sheriff’s Office has arrested four men in recent narcotics cases.

The first occurred June 26, the result of a traffic stop.

According to a press release issued by Sheriff Darrell Dix, a deputy of the Uniform Patrol Division conducted a traffic stop on a black Nissan Altima on Old Atlanta Road. As deputies approached the vehicle, they noticed what they described as the strong smell of marijuana coming from the vehicle.

The driver was identified as Kierra McCrary-Hatcher and the passenger was Christopher Ladontae Macwell.

Officials say as Hatcher was speaking with deputies outside the vehicle, she allegedly reported that when the patrol unit’s blue lights were activated in reference to the traffic stop, Macwell began shoving narcotics in her pants.

“As she was telling the deputies her story she began retrieving the bags from her pants and gave them to the deputies,” Dix said. “While he was being questioned, Macwell confirmed the story of Hatcher and admitted ownership of the narcotics that he had placed in her pants.”

Macwell, age 20, of 104 E. McIntosh Road, was arrested and charged with trafficking methamphetamine, possession of a synthetic narcotic with intent to distribute, possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and violation of probation.

“All of these Deputies and Investigators did an outstanding job on these cases. I’m proud of them, and all the hard-working employees across the Spalding County Sheriff’s Office in every division,” Dix said. “All of them do a great job to clean up our streets and make our community safer every day.”
