Broken car leads to drug arrests in Alpharetta

March 14, 2014
ALPHARETTA, Ga. – A broken-down vehicle led to the arrests of two young men March 2 for possession of drugs.

Police spotted the Mercedes stranded in the intersection of Haynes Bridge Road and Westside Parkway about 5 p.m. Three teenagers were inside and pushed the vehicle to a nearby gas station.

One of the teens, Nicholas Blaine, 18, of Laurel Grove Drive, Milton, allegedly told police he had a prior arrest for drug possession but could not remember exactly when. A search of his record turned up two prior arrests for marijuana possession since the beginning of the year.

Blaine allegedly had a baggie of pot in his pants pocket.

A 17-year-old man was allegedly found in possession of a bag of marijuana and a scale.

A glass pipe was found in the car. Both men had nearly $1,000 in cash on them.

The 17-year-old Alpharetta man and Blaine were arrested for possession of marijuana.

    Hey Cham, you also missed: "should of" should be "should have" or "should've". Perhaps a comma after "cop" and a period after "road".

    Plus look at his subject line, he does not realize that "another" is a word, it's not "a nother".

    Poor Josh really does need some remedial English courses.

    He probably has a Forsyth County education. You can't blame him.

    Where is the editor?

    It doesn't bother me that "Josh" cannot write very well. It's his choice and he will have to go through life with his educational decisions and efforts.

    I'm more disturbed an editor will allow the verbiage "pos" to remain on the news website. Educated or interested readers can do without the garbage.

    Anytime you call up there and ask for the editor he is never at the office either and they will not reply to emails . You'd think a guy who's last name was the same as the publication company would be in his office atleast 1 time a week! Appen Media is a joke that somehow gets to print our news

    There is another story that was published, about a driver with a latino last name. He was arrested for allegedly having alcohol and other controlled substances in a commercial vehicle.

    What I find disappointing is that a reader commented on THAT story that the name was not only a correlation, but causal to his behavior.

    The above story is nearly the same circumstance, but absent a latino surname, the object of the frustrations seems less specific.

    For me, it serves to remind that bias in the media should not surprise anyone, since bias exists in the minds of all. It's a personal challenge that we choose to take on, or not.
