22-Year-Old Arrested For Drugs After Being In The Wrong Place


A Gaylesville man was arrested on several drug charges Saturday at a residence he was allegedly told to stay away from, according to Chattooga County Sheriff’s reports.

Jesse Travis Giddens, 22, was on the porch of a Foster Street residence in Lyerly. Deputy Daniel Sanford reported that Giddens was not supposed to be at that home.

As I was talking to Jesse, I asked him if he had any weapons on him and he stated that he had a knife in the waistband of his shorts. I then retrieved the knife and conducted a pat-down for more weapons. During the pat-down, I felt something in Jesse’s left front shorts pocket that felt like a plastic bag wrapped up with something inside of it. Based on my knowledge, training, and experience the object felt as if it was a plastic bag with some sort of illegal substance. Jesse then hung his head and I asked Jesse what was in his pocket and he stated it was a bag of marijuana,” Deputy Sanford stated. 

Deputies continued their search of Giddens and allegedly found other illegal items, according to a report.

Giddens was arrested for possession of meth, possession of less than an ounce of marijuana and possession or use of drug related objects.
