The arrests were the result of a joint investigation by the Whitfield County Sheriff’s Office, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Safe Street Task Force. The investigation is continuing, and officials say they anticipate additional arrests.
Investigators have charged:
• Travis Joe Little, 50, of Highway 114, Summerville, with trafficking in meth, possession to distribute meth, possession of Schedule 3 and 4 drugs and possession of marijuana.
• Eric Hendrix, 30, 123 Atha Woods Drive, Monroe, with trafficking in meth, possession with intent to distribute meth and possession of meth.
• Chantelle Brooke Everson, 17, Atha Woods Drive, Monroe, with trafficking in meth, possession with intent to distribute meth and possession of meth.
A press release from the Whitfield County Sheriff’s Office said investigators found that Little “was supplying large quantities of methamphetamine to the Dalton-Whitfield County area.” The press release states officers arrested Little on Friday night on the Lafayette Highway and seized a large amount of meth.
The release states investigators traced the meth Little was distributing back to Hendrix. They located Hendrix in the Connector 3 area Monday night and arrested him, along with Everson who was in the vehicle with him.
