Traffic violation results in pot bust
Marijuana was found in a Trion man’s truck after he failed to stop at an intersection on Dec. 15, according to Chattooga County Sheriff’s reports.
Johnny Marvin Caylor, 44, of Williams Cemetery Road, ran a stop sign in his red Chevrolet S10 near Walmart. He told Deputy Daniel Sanford that he might have “a little in the glove box.”
” I did locate two plastic bags that both contained a small amount of suspected marijuana in them and both bags were inside another bag. I did not find any more suspected marijuana in the truck or on Mr. Caylor’s person,” Deputy Sanford stated.
Caylor was jailed for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana, according to an incident report.
Police in this county and all over Georgia and the nation are an embarrasment. Constant reports of official misconduct and brutality and moral turpitude. Deputies in this county making questionable arrests and using improper and unethical tactics to make searches, arrests, and harrass citizens. Perhaps even worse are judges who know they do it and refuse to reign in their behavior. I have no respect for about 80% of the law enforcment in this county. Even less for those outside the county. I know of only one deputy i would trust and give the benefit of the doubt to. I am a supporter of our current sheriff. I believe him to be a good man, and a perfect fit and temperment for the office he holds. But Mark…you really need to take a good hard look at many of the deputies you have, and you should also pull this county out of its relationship with the LMJDTF and form your own narcotics unit. Run it under better standards and take a more active role in making sure your employees maintain higher standards in ethics, professionalism, and make them realize that the state of the publics perception of law enforcement is evolving and degrading due as a direct result of seeing and hearing in the news almost daily about cops commiting crimes, harassing the public and generally acting like they can do whatever they want, and treat the public like crap , and we are supposed to just accept it. You have a dirty porch and house and its really time you start looking into your department and clean it up. Win back the trust and respect of the public. You can start by cleaning up the behavior and tactics of your deputies. I have heard and seen way too much for it to have all been just made up , or just being sour grapes from people who came afoul of the law and having a ax to grind. You have deputies that are straight up confrontational and escalate situations just because they think they can..and who demand respect and deference from us citizens without the feeling of having to earn it..they feel entitled to it because they have a uniform and a little shiny badge. They didnt get this way overnight. They got that way by seeing their colleagues doing it and getting away with it.
