A license check over the weekend by the Elbert County Sheriff’s Office lands two in jail.

In the early morning hours on Sunday, a license check led to a pair of arrests within a few minutes of each other.

Around 3:30am that morning, the first person arrested was 19-year-old Tavin Isaiah Mattress of Anderson, SC.

Elbert County Sheriff Melvin Andrews runs down the charges he faces.

“He was arrested on charges of Possession of Marijuana Less than 1 Ounce, and Possession of drug related object”, said Sheriff Andrews.

Less than half an hour later 24-year-old Dawn Marie McCullough came through the checkpoint, and after further investigation, Sheriff Andrews says she was also arrested on drug related charges.

“She was arrested on charges of Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Distribute, Possession of Drug Related Objects, and DUI of Drugs”, he said.

Both were transported to the Elbert County Detention Center after their arrests, where they were both later released on bond.
