seven suspected meth dealers arrested

by Wes Mayer

Seven people suspected of distributing methamphetamine in Newnan were arrested Tuesday by investigators with the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office.

Around 8 p.m., investigators in the sheriff’s office’s Crime Suppression Unit searched the home of a suspect, Tracy Lee Hendrix, 39, on 9 Sunny South St. At the residence, investigators found two outbuildings in the backyard, and inside these buildings, investigators found Hendrix and six others — Christopher Adam Long, 36; Jason Everett Huggins, 35; Mitchell Thomas Cook, 39; Heath Christopher Borne, 37; Jon Chadwick Meigs, 36; and April Christine Kendzierski, 36.

Authorities also discovered a number of items and substances believed to be used for manufacturing methamphetamine inside the outbuildings. When searched, digital scales, glass pipes and a total of one ounce of methamphetamine in multiple small plastic baggies were found in the suspects’ possession.

Because of this, all seven were charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute and were transported to the Coweta County Jail.
