Dahlonega man charged with possession of heroin

News

DAHLONEGA, Ga. – What started out as a routine traffic stop last week resulted in the arrest of a Dahlonega man for possession of heroin and prescription pills not in the original container.

According to the arrest report, Lumpkin County Sheriff’s Office deputies stopped a blue Chevrolet Blazer on East Main Street driven by 44-year-old Don Edmondson for failure to maintain a lane. Deputies say they became suspicious when the driver appeared more anxious than most for a routine traffic stop.

After patting Edmondson down, deputies noticed an orange and white medication bottle with no label that contained pills. Edmondson said they were hydrocodone and that he had a prescription, but was unable to produce it.

Edmondson was placed under arrest for prescription pills not in the original container and transported to the Lumpkin County Detention Center. When he was searched at the detention center, deputies discovered a grey powder substance in a small bag in his pocket which was confirmed to be heroin.

In addition to the original charge of prescription pills not in the original container, Edmondson was charged with possession of heroin and crossing the guard line with an illegal substance.
