Sheriff’s office narcotics investigators executed a search warrant on the home of Charles Joseph Howard, 29, on Sylvan Lake Drive in Grovetown.

Authorities found more than 2 pounds of marijuana, more than a pound of hashish, a small amount of mushrooms and nine bottles of Equibol, an anabolic steroid and horse feed supplement. Investigators also seized a 9 mm pistol, drug paraphernalia, $4,385 in cash, a 2005 Nissan Altima and a Harley-Davidson motorcycle.

Howard was charged with purchase/possession/manufacture/distribution/sale of a controlled substance.

He was released from the Columbia County Detention Center after posting a $7,600 bond, according to jail records.

As part of another investigation, deputies stopped a 2003 Honda Accord driven by Stuart Clifton Scott II on Thursday. Inside the car, deputies found about 5 ounces of marijuana and seized the car.

While searching Scott’s Crystal Creek Drive home in Martinez, investigators seized a small amount of marijuana, 67.5 Schedule II pills, 14 Scheduled III pills, two Schedule IV pills, $3,365 in cash and a pistol.

Scott, 21, was charged with possession of Schedule II, III and IV drugs, and two counts of possession with intent to distribute.

Drugs in Ivy Falls, say it ain't so. I wonder how many posters will refer to these two as thugs?

If they claim that they sold

If they claim that they sold drugs only to finance their own drug habits, will they be sentenced as first offenders in a drug court program?

A similar ruse has worked in the RC portion of the AJC.
