Cops: Gwinnett duo caught in Sandy Springs with meth, heroin

A woman and a man were arrested in Sandy Springs a little after midnight on Tuesday after methamphetamine and heroin was found in the car they were driving, police said.

Stacey C. Ogletree of Lawrenceville and Ryan Sullivan of Duluth were transported to the Alpharetta-Fulton County jail Tuesday after their arrest. Court records show they are facing charges of possession of heroin with intent to distribute, possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, and possession and use of drug related objects.

An officer pulled over the car Ogletree was driving on southbound Dunwoody Place in Sandy Springs after the officer noticed her car didn’t have a tag or working tag lights. When the officer approached the car, Ogletree and Sullivan were shaking, police said.

The officer requested a K-9 unit to the scene and asked Ogletree and Sullivan to step out of the car. After the K-9 conducted and “open air sniff” and alerted to the vehicle, officers searched the car – 2002 white Ford Expedition – and found a brown purse, police said.

Inside of that bag was 15 grams of methamphetamine wrapped in little bags, a scale, two grams of heroin and a needle. Police said they also found a glass pipe under the passenger seat which appeared to have meth residue in it. Police also found a marijuana grinder in Sullivan’s pocket.

Per the police report, Ogletree and Sullivan initially denied the bag was theirs and said it didn’t belong to them. But Ogletree said Sullivan handed her the bag when the cop pulled them over and told her to “hide it because there was drugs inside.”
