A large amount of fentanyl, ecstasy and tools used to make pills were found after Cobb County cops executed a search warrant earlier this month at a home in unincorporated Acworth.
The discovery, which led to the arrest of two women, was made Feb. 7 at a home in the 4600 block of Hickory Run Court, Cobb warrants show. According to the Cobb County Police Department’s Facebook page, authorities were dispatched to the home to investigate allegations that drugs were being used and dogs were being mistreated.
Officers arrived to investigate the situation, and detained two people and removed 20 dogs that were being housed in cages.
Cobb police spokesperson Neil Penirelli said the animals were not injured, so they were not turned over to Cobb County Animal Services.
“The dogs are being cared for by another person that lives in the residence as well as a neighbor who were not involved with the case,” officer Penirelli said.
A search of the residence led to police finding seven pill presses, a brick press, two stolen weapons, a little less than 5 pounds of ecstasy, about 6 pounds of fentanyl, roughly 8 grams of marijuana, 27 grams of unknown pills and 22 ounces of unidentified powder. According to warrants, one of the firearms, a 12-gauge shotgun, belonged to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.
Two occupants of the home, Samantha Tameika Myles and Shavon Monae Fullington-Goodrich, were arrested after the search. Myles was charged with one count of possession of marijuana less than an ounce. She was booked into the Cobb County Jail on Feb. 7 and released on a $1,320 bond.
Fullington-Goodrich was charged with possession of marijuana, theft by receiving stolen property, trafficking heroin, possession of controlled substances with intent to manufacture and possessing and distributing ecstasy. She remains held at the Cobb detention center without bond.
