TOCCOA, Ga. — Two Oconee County, South Carolina, women face drug charges after an incident at a Stephens County store.

Toccoa Police Chief Tim Jarrell said officers were called to the Toccoa Wal-Mart in the early morning hours Tuesday in reference to alleged shoplifting.

Jarrell said police apprehended the two women accused: Hope Carter, 20, of Westminster and Tabatha Nell Pitch, 27, of Seneca.

“Officers were able to locate what they believed to be crystal methamphetamine,” Jarrell said. “It was in a bag, in a backpack, with some other items that had been shoplifted.”

Police charged each of the women with trafficking methamphetamine, a felony, and misdemeanor shoplifting.

“The suspected methamphetamine is over 6.22 ounces, which we believe to have an estimated street value of over $13,000,” Jarrell said.

Carter and Pitch were both taken to the Stephens County Jail.

Stephens County Sheriff Randy Shirley said deputies found another ounce of meth on Pitch when she arrived at the jail.

The Sheriff’s Office charged her with possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute and crossing the guard line at the jail with illegal contraband.

Jarrell said police also seized the 2001 Toyota Highlander the women were driving and nearly $1,000 in of cash the women were carrying at the time of their arrest.
