John Whitener, of Hephzibah, was arrested and charged with manufacturing and trafficking methamphetamine, as well as traffic violations, according to jail records.

Jaimeson Urbanik, of Augusta, was charged with manufacturing and trafficking methamphetamine.

Around 12:30 a.m., Medical College of Georgia Police stopped a Ford Ranger driving southbound on 15th Street with no headlights, said MCG Major Eugene Maxwell.

MCG officers ran the tag and discovered that the license plate was not registered to the vehicle. A search of the truck’s bed uncovered meth and materials to cook meth, Maj. Maxwell said.

Drug Enforcement Administration agents and the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office narcotics unit assisted in the arrest.

Both men remain in the Richmond County Jail with no bond.

From working with abused

From working with abused children for the state, when we took the meth class, the pics and study were all white men/women. I'd be shocked when they show them they are not.

What a bunch of IDIOTS.

What a bunch of IDIOTS. Driving around at night with no headlights. That right there is saying catch me. Maybe they thought they would be cloaked in the dark of the night.

Saw a car without headlights

Saw a car without headlights from the time it left the gas station until it turned into its apartment complex. I've been seeing an awful lot of cars without headlights lately. Can't help but wonder if every last one of them is an impaired driver, whether it's illegal or illegal drugs, alcohol, or sleep deprivation. Or simply mentally impaired?

Atleast the racist kkk

Atleast the racist kkk members that we have to hear form everyday. Won't comment because the criminals are white. You know the main one's on here who always have to make a racial comment except in this instance.

Meth is the number one drug

Meth is the number one drug in america. But yet they haven't called it a epidemic yet. While more kids end up with single moms or in foster care. More parents in jail and prison. The white community needs to wake up? And speak up about meth. Just look at where in the country its doing the most damage. Places where its majority white.

patriciathomas, apex24,

patriciathomas, apex24, christian134, & greenjacket are the biggest racist on this site. They are quiet because they are gulliable white Conservatives that have been brainwashed that immoraility only exist with blacks, or in the black communities. As I have always said.... Immorality has no race, gender, or address.

I wonder if they are staying

I wonder if they are staying with a girlfriend or wife on welfare, section 8 and getting food stamps in Hephzibah? I wonder if they live in a project out there, a trailer or house? The chronicle should interview someone from both their families.

Mongol has posted about 6 times already about the black community this and that crap. On the article about the lake near the mall. But yet somehow skipped this article. I wonder why?

Can't find them all of a

Can't find them all of a sudden. No mention of welfare, where the parents, i blame the parents, no mention of race, no racial stereotypes or slurs. They prove their nothing but a bunch of racist bigots. They get ghost everytime the criminal is white.

Especially MONGOL WHERE ARE

Especially MONGOL WHERE ARE YOU? In the other article remember that crap you keep saying about black community take accountability. Well here are two white criminals take accountability for them. Since you want black people to do it when someone in their race commits a crime. Here you go 2 white criminals selling meth to your white community. Which means getting more white men/women hooked on meth. Which means more whites in prison, more white kids in single parents homes, and more white kids in foster care. MONGOL stand up take action and accountablity now. What do you have to say to the white community?

Well hell... The white boys

Well hell... The white boys get caught with meth and where is the outrage from the white community. What ? No riots, no shotgun wielding white supremacists. This WAS near Cherry Tree Crossing. Maybe they were laid up with a black girl on welfare. hehe
