TPD Announces Two Arrests
Toccoa Police are announcing two arrests.
According to a report on file with the police department, a traffic stop on Saturday night led to a drug charge.
Police say that an officer was on patrol when he observed a vehicle failing to maintain its lane just around 10 p.m. Saturday.
The officer states that he attempted to initiate a traffic stop, but the vehicle sped away, allegedly running stop signs and not using signals.
The report goes on to state that the vehicle eventually stopped on Currahee Street, got out of the vehicle, and allegedly placed something in his mouth and swallowed it.
Police arrested the subject, identified as James Stanley Feaster of West Spring Street in Toccoa, for fleeing and reckless driving.
According to authorities, they found a rock-like substance believed to be cocaine in the vehicle, so Feaster was also charged with Possession of Cocaine.
Elsewhere, Toccoa Police say they arrested 55-year-old William Keith McDonald of Toccoa on September 13 on charges of Solicitation of Sodomy.
Toccoa Police Chief Tim Jarrell says the investigation into this case is ongoing to determine if additional charges are warranted.
Jarrell says anyone with information on this individual is urged to contact Toccoa Police Detective Matt Venable at 706-282-3281.
