Fallen Tree Leads to Arrest on Drug Charges


CLEVELAND, Ga. – Adrian Jakab, 19, of Dahlonega probably never thought bad weather and a fallen tree could lead to his arrest on drug charges. But that is what happened Thursday.

Severe weather caused the tree to fall across Gene Nix Road. A White County Sheriff’s Office Deputy was there to prevent an accident. According to the deputy, Jakab was speeding and had to abruptly stop to avoid hitting the deputy’s car. As the deputy approached Jakab’s car, he smelled marijuana.

White County authorities searched Jakab’s car and found three ounces of marijuana individually packaged to sell along with a plastic container of “DAB” or hash oil which is THC extracted from the marijuana buds along with a handgun. The street value of the illegal narcotics is $ 3,330.

White County Sheriff’s Office and the Appalachian Regional Drug Enforcement Office (ARDEO) arrested Jakab. He is charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of a schedule I narcotic (hash oil) and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.
