Two individuals were arrested Monday afternoon on drug related charges by the Elbert County Sheriff’s Office.
Elbert County Sheriff Barry Haston said that surveillance was being conducted on an individual after an investigation into the distribution of controlled substances.
Investigators observed the suspect engage in what appeared to be a drug transaction in a parking lot on North Oliver Street. The vehicle was later stopped by deputies on the Hartwell Highway.
Based on evidence recovered during a search of the vehicle, Investigators arrested 55 year old Larry Brewer and 67 year old Rosa Tucker, both of a Hartwell, Georgia address.
Both were charged with Possession of Schedule 2 Controlled Substance with Intent to distribute, and Possession of Schedule 3 Controlled Substance with Intent to Distribute, and were then transported to the Elbert County Detention Center.
