Danielsville police recently arrested three “squatters” — including one who is suspected of hitting a Clarke County school bus and fleeing — on drug charges.

The suspects were arrested at a condemned house on Hillwood Drive last Thursday, where a search turned up methamphetamine and other drugs, according to Danielsville Police Chief Brenan Baird.

Leslie Ann Ankerich, 26, of Wildflower Drive, Braselton, and William S. Cowart, 22, of Buddy Moore Road, Colbert, were each charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, while Courtney Nicole Davis, 18, of Woodstone Drive, Athens, was charged with possession of methamphetamine.

Cowart, who was also charged with possessing Lortab and Adderall, is suspected of driving a car that rear-ended a school bus on Spring Valley Road in Athens-Clarke County on April 8, then leaving the scene, Baird said. There were no injuries in the wreck. Cowart “said he left because he had drugs and he didn’t have a license,” Baird said. The Georgia State Patrol is investigating the crash.

Police and probation officers went to the condemned Danielsville house to make sure people known to be there were moving out, Baird said.

“They were basically squatters, they were not renters,” he said.

Two others at the house were allowed to leave, he said.
