Mother accuses daughter after Alpharetta arrest



ALPHARETTA, Ga. – A mother pointed the finger at her daughter July 26 after being found with a large amount of alleged marijuana in their car.

Police spotted the suspect vehicle at 3 a.m. after its license plate returned with a suspended registration. Four people were inside.

The driver, Tracey Lynn Scott, 39, of Atlanta, was found to have an active warrant for her arrest for probation violation for forgery. She was arrested. Her daughter, Shykil Nicole Scott, 23, of Atlanta, at first gave police a false name when asked, and later was found to also have a warrant out for probation violation for assault.

Also found in the car was a glass jar containing several plastic “dime bags.” Both Scotts and another passenger, Robert Renardo Daniel, 21, of Lithonia, allegedly had a large amount of cash on them, which officers say is consistent with dealing drugs.

When asked about the drugs, Tracey Scott said, “Who was sitting where you found it? My daughter. There is your answer.”

Daniel, Tracey Scott and Shykil Scott were all arrested for possession with the intent to distribute marijuana. The Scotts were also arrested on their outstanding warrants.
