They were Steven Jordan Shaw, 18, of 1123 Maple Drive; Michael Neal Ingram, 17, of 760 Vineyard Road; and Mickey Joseph Stephens, 18, of 1133 Vineyard Road.
The arrests were made after Griffin Police Department (GPD) officer Joseph Hudson noticed a silver Lexus ES300 and a black Jeep Cherokee parked side-by-side near Bruster’s on Georgia Highway 16.
According to Hudson, he observed the Jeep occupants ducking down and attempting to hide. Upon questioning them, Hudson reported observing “obvious physical indications of drug consumption and detected the odor of marijuana when Mickey Stephens spoke to him after exiting the Lexus.”
After GPD Cpl. Jeremy Bennett and his K-9 partner Deuce arrived on the scene to assist, Deuce conducted a free air sniff and indicated a positive alert for narcotics in the area of the driver’s door of the Lexus.
Hudson located a quantity of Schedule I narcotics, a green marijuana pipe, rolling papers, a pen turned into a marijuana pipe, and a medical clamp.
The Lexus was impounded and the Jeep was released to a family member of Stephens. Four juveniles in the Jeep were investigated and released to their parents.
