Hiawassee, GA – On June 18, 2018, the Hiawassee Police Department stopped a 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier for operating without a license plate. Towns County Dispatch had also given a “lookout” for the vehicle after it had been reported driving recklessly. A subsequent search of the vehicle lead officers to locate approximately 77 grams of methamphetamine, syringes containing methamphetamine, marijuana, drug related objects, and over $700.
The driver of the vehicle, Phillip Goss of Gainesville, GA, was arrested and charged with Trafficking Methamphetamine, Possession of Less than One Ounce of Marijuana, Possession of Drug Related Objects, and Operating an Unregistered Vehicle. The passenger, Angelica Millwood of Gainesville, GA, was arrested and charged with Trafficking Methamphetamine, Possession of Less than One Ounce of Marijuana, and Possession of Drug Related Objects. They are both being held without bond at the Towns County Jail.
“This is the first drug trafficking arrest made in Hiawassee, and the largest amount of methamphetamine that we have seen,” said Chief Paul Smith. “These drugs came from Gainesville and were meant to be sold in this area. Stopping the distributors will do the most good for our community and our fight against drugs.”
