Deputies make drug arrests

LEESBURG, Ga. -- A call to investigate a woman banging on a door and yelling resulted in an arrest for possession of cocaine and marijuana Saturday, stated a Lee County Sheriff's Office report.

On Sunday, a man's violent reaction to questioning brought a Taser into play by a deputy, the reports added.

A deputy stopped to ask 18-year-old Jakob Morgan what he was doing riding a bicycle on the 200 block of Kinchafoonee Creek Road at 1 a.m., the report stated.

According to the reports, once Morgan stopped he "began to reach into his pocket with his left hand." The deputy noticed a bulge in Morgan's waistband.

Under commands to take his hands out of his pockets and put them on his head, Morgan refused, the report continued. The deputy reached for his handcuffs when Morgan "then tried to snatch the handcuffs from my (the deputy's) hands."

When Morgan didn't get the handcuffs, he reached back into his pocket, the report stated. The deputy deployed his Taser, the report added.

"The Taser probes struck Jacob (Morgan) in the chest and lower abdominal area," according to the report by Deputy W. Baltzell. "Jacob fell to the ground and complied with every command until another deputy arrived to place him in handcuffs."

Emergency medical technicians checked Morgan for injury and "everything checked out normal," the report stated. Morgan was taken to the Lee County Jail and charged with obstruction of an officer and possession of less than an ounce of marijuana.

On Sunday, a call to deputies about a woman yelling and banging on a door at a 191 W. Doublegate Drive residence resulted in a variety of drug charges.

According to the report, Macon said that he did not want Hepner at his residence. "Mallory (Hepner) then informed me (the deputy) that Elijah (Macon) has crack cocaine in his house and the he and her smoke crack every day at his residence."
