Clarkesville Man arrested for drugs in Stephens County

A Stephens County Sheriff Deputy uncovers drugs after noticing a suspicious vehicle parked outside of a local service station.

According to Stephens County Sheriff Randy Shirley one of his investigators had noticed the vehicle parked, with two occupants, outside of a local service station, and thought it was odd that neither occupant was getting out of the vehicle, prompting him to run the tag.

The investigator soon found that there was no valid insurance coverage on the vehicle. After checking the tag, the vehicle pulled out of the gas station and investigators followed to conduct a traffic stop.

Upon approaching the vehicle investigators identified the driver as 47-year-old Kimberly Ann Mull, of Toccoa and learned that her license was suspended.

Mull was placed under arrest for driving on a suspended license and operating a motor vehicle without insurance.

The passenger in the vehicle was identified as 29-year-old Howard Nathaniel Mull, of Clarkesville.

Investigators ran Howard’s information through GCIC and found that he had an active arrest warrant out of Habersham County for Probation Violation; they then arrested him on this outstanding warrant.

Shirley says that investigators then conducted a search of the vehicle and a bag that Howard had with him.

Inside the bag, investigators located two plastic bags, one containing a large quantity of methamphetamine and the other a quantity of heroine.

Also, in the bag, investigators found packaging materials and scales.

Both Howard and Kimberly were transported to the Stephens County Jail.

Kimberly Mull was later released on a $1,000 bond for the traffic offenses.

Howard Mull is charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute and possession of a schedule I controlled substance.

Howard is currently being held pending a Superior Court Bond hearing.
