Case Of Drug Ring Involving Child Sent To Grand Jury

Wednesday, August 27, 2014 - by Hollie Webb

Felony drug charges against four individuals who admitted to involving a child in their alleged crimes were bound over to a grand jury after a Tuesday hearing.

The alleged incidents took place back in February. 

According to police, narcotics detectives were watching when a green jeep pulled into the parking lot of an apartment complex on East Brainerd Road.

The narcotics detectives said they saw a man, woman and child get out.

The driver, Natasha McGee, remained inside the vehicle while the man and woman went inside the apartment. 

Police said they saw a woman, identified as Patricia Hakim, throw a nylon bag outside the apartment. They said the child ran and got it before going back to the car.

Ms. McGee then took the bag and placed it in the back seat. 

The detectives said they knew Ms. McGee was driving on a suspended license. Shortly after leaving, she was pulled over and arrested. The vehicle was searched.

In the bag, police found approximately 4.4 pounds of marijuana, 490 xanax tablets, digital scales, and $4,000 in cash. 

Because of this, police went back to the apartment with a search warrant. Ms. Hakim was arrested along with Kerry Clemons and Jonathan Henderson. Multiple weapons were also found in the home.

All were charged with possession of marijuana for resale, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a firearm while in commission of a felony, and possession of a controlled substance. Ms. McGee was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor. 

During the hearing, Ms. McGee's attorney said, "She was at the wrong place at the wrong time...She was just trying to help a friend."

However, Sessions Court Judge Christie Mahn Sell said there were too many coincidences and that she found probable cause.

Don't Squander The 2016 Election Opportunity

This is what I don't understand. Christians refusing to vote for anyone who is not squeaky clean and who doesn't live up to our standards. I'm not bashing Christians. I proudly proclaim Jesus as Lord and Savior.  But If we made our voice known more we could have a lot greater influence than we have. And I don't mean just boycotting. I specifically mean the last two ... (click for more)
