Comments Off on Nearly 50 women and men indicted in Cobb County Methamphetamine and heroin drug ring

MARIETTA, GA (CBS46) – Cobb County prosecutors indicted 46 people in a heroin and methamphetamine dealing ring.

The indictment alleges that between September 2013 and August 2014, those indicted used Tattoos by Ho at 950 Cobb Parkway in Marietta as a base of operations and that as members and associates of the “Good Product Team” street gang, engaged in the sale and distribution of heroin methamphetamine and other illegal drugs.

Those charged also include people who were not members or associates of the gang, but purchased the illegal drugs.

Antoine Maurice Atkinson, Dennis Beams, James Cook, Samantha Cresswell, Adam Dehan, Corey Erwin, Ezzard Evans, Darione Farris, Matthew Green, Tommy Gresham, Zibiah Hammond, Krissy Harden, Eugene Harden, John Ho, Amy Holden, Marcus Holland, Russell Hucks, Charles James, Reginald Jones, Rachel Lopez, Derrick McDonald, Brandon McFarland, Aurelius Madison, Dequentin Madison, Xavier Martin, Bernard Mathis, Erica Monson, Jonathan Norton, Lamar Odom, Matthew Osburn, Samatha Pinada, Julius Rawls, Margaret Riceman, Stephen Ruel, Christopher Sanchez, Kenneth Sherman, William Simpson, Jason Singleton, Charles Smith, Brenyanna Stinner-Hailey, Brandon Truitt, Shannon Waddle, Johnathan Wirt, Billy Jo Works, Thomas Works, Sr., and Thomas Works, Jr., were all charged.

Charges include multiple counts of violation of Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act and violation of Street Gang Terrorism and Prevention Act, as well as trafficking in heroin and trafficking in methamphetamine. Not every defendant is charged with each count in the indictment.

The group was using a tattoo parlor as a front for the operation.

“This is a great example of the collaboration and commitment between law enforcement and the District Attorney’s Office in Cobb County as we attempt to eradicate our county of both gangs and drugs, especially heroin,” DA Reynolds said.

Prosecutors say the drug trafficking group was at work in Cobb County for nearly seven years.

Cobb County District Attorney Vic Reynolds says that drugs, especially heroin have become a problem in Cobb County.

“We’re seeing many more heroin cases, and what really concerned us about the cases is we were seeing overdoses at hospitals,” says Reynolds.
