Tiffany Lee Gardenhire, 32, told deputies responding to Travelodge at 3039 Washington Road that she was assaulted by a heavyset black male, known only as Nick, and a black female shortly after her roommate left for breakfast.

Gardenhire said she was pinned down on the bed by the woman, and that the man held a knife to her throat and demanded money. The two stole $100 from Gardenhire’s purse and left in a light blue Ford Ranger, the report said.

Deputies noticed a small bag of meth in plain view on a table, the report said. Af­ter field testing confirmed it was meth, they arrested Garden­hire and her roommate, Marcie Tannis Reeves, on charges of possession of meth with intent to distribute.

Gardenhire later decided against pursuing the armed robbery case.

HA!

I guess Tiffany Gardenhire now knows what it is like to be violated. She and 3 others broke in my house in January. She JUST got out of jail. Guess some people never change.

Get your story together and hide your condemning evidence before you go reporting crimes. Glad we had good investigators on that call.

Tiffany Gardenshire looks way

Tiffany Gardenshire looks way older than 32, meth will do that to you.

I wonder *snort* where she got the $100 from.

Time for a serious Law change

Death Penalty for Dealers of Addictive drugs
and Treatment for those addicted.

Use the confiscated drug $$$$ and assets for treatment.

I wonder if there is more to the story than what was told. They decided not to press charges. Interesting. drug deal gone bad, maybe?

I don't believe that we should put drug dealers of addictive drugs to death. it takes two to tango. The person who chooses to "try" that drug in the first place is more responsible for their addiction than the person they bought it from. Besides, as we have seen in our own justice system, the threat of the death penalty doesn't slow the criminal down one bit as far as I can see.

Drugs are the reason crime is so high. No person unless wealthy can support a drug habit working for a living. This results in a large percentage of robberies and break-ins. Drugs are not a victimless crime and should be dealt with harshly when they come before a judge. But we all know that doesn't happen so in an area where there's high drug use they'll be high crime rates.

Most murders get a slap on the

Most murders get a slap on the hand and some want the death penalty for drug dealers. Let a woman murder her 2 kids by stabbing them to death, and the woman gets sympathy. I remember that woman who planned and stabbed her young kids to death on Lumpkin Road at that convenience store,. She got away with it. Then a drug dealer you want the death penalty. Man that is wrong. I say let the sentence fit the crime.

The death penalty IS a deterrent if it is used enough. That is the problem today....we don't use it enough and we don't carry it out swiftly.

Capital Punishment

I'm thinking death penalty for meth users that kill their kids and drive slow in the left lane...

The addicts don't want treatment, they LOVE doing their drugs.

They don't stop until THEY want to stop.
