LEESBURG, Ga. — A loud noise and drug-activity complaint led Lee County Sheriff's Office deputies to the Fairfax Motel at about 4:20 a.m. Wednesday, a sheriff's report stated.

According to the report, deputies found six ounces of marijuana, $118 in cash and three men in room 123 at the 1044 U.S. Highway 19 motel. Six ounces of high-quality marijuana is worth $2,130 on average in Georgia, according to the website priceofweed.com. Medium quality is $1,056 an ounce.

Caleb Carey Cawthon, 19, of Leesburg, Steven Anthony Jordan II, 23, of Lee County, and Milla H. Armando, 20, of Richmand, Va., are in the Lee County Jail, said a jail spokeswoman. Charges against the three include possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of tools for the commission of a crime.

Jordan and Armando were denied bail in their first appearance before a judge Wednesday, the jail spokeswoman said. Cawthon was too high to understand what was going on and will make a first appearance Friday, she added.

Here's the REAL difference you two dumb asses won't see about this article. You won't get any of the "usual cast of characters" getting on here and defending these punks and telling them "no weapon formed against you shall prosper". Get the difference, geniuses?

Where were you joe blows when they had those 8 black criminals on the most wanted list last week. Hmmmm! Guessed you just glossed over and missed that article, how ironic. I thought y'all would be in there saying they were good peoples and they dint do anything wrong, But don't worry, when they get caught, they'll be back on the street the next day commiting more crimes.

One thing though, if they cannot make bail, they will stay in jail at least a year before the go to trial. No back out on the streets in a few days for the bond will be steep.

Well done! At least in Lee County they do not have a "No Snitch" populace. Bust these young punks back to 8th grade!
