Simple traffic violation leads to felony drug arrest


LUMPKIN COUNTY, Ga. — What began as a misdemeanor arrest for driving on a suspended license last week turned into a felony arrest for possession of methamphetamine and drug related objects.

Lumpkin County Sheriff’s Office deputies stopped Robert Duvall’s vehicle traveling toward Dahlonega on Longbranch Road after they determine his license had been suspended for non-payment of child support.

Joshua Head, a passenger in the vehicle asked if it was OK for him to step out of the vehicle and when he did, the deputy observed a clear cylindrical, glass object on the seat, the kind used to smoke meth.

The object field tested positive for meth. According to the incident report, Head said the object belonged to him and he was arrested on charges of possession of methamphetamine and possession of a drug related object.
Both men were transported to the Lumpkin County Detention Center.

    As the owner of said vehicle, the cylindrical object that was reportedly found was actually crushed in the passenger floor. I firmly believe that the object had been there since the previous weekend, when an individual and 2 acquaintances had borrowed my vehicle to move some things to a different location. Mr. Head told the deputies that it was his for the sole purpose of keeping Mr. Duvall from being charged, as the deputies had threatened both with possession.

      He knew his licenses was suspended he got a letter saying they were, and besides that a payment hasn’t been made since the beginning of June. So don’t try and defend him nobody feels bad for the decision he has made in his life…

    Additionally, Mr. Duvall was unaware that his license had been suspended, however, deputies “ran” his name when both occupants emerged from a convenience store, where they had purchased snacks and drinks after working all day on the restoration of the roof of a mobile home.
