Peachtree City police on Dec. 10 busted two houses on the city’s north and south sides, and made multiple arrests, including two people on drug trafficking charges.  

Peachtree City Police Department spokesman Chris Hyatt said officers working on cases via anonymous complaints dealing with a residence on Clarin Way off Crosstown Drive and another on Senoia Road obtained search warrants that were executed simultaneously on Dec. 10 by members of the department’s Special Response Team.

Pertaining to the search warrant executed at the Clarin Way residence, Hyatt said a quantity of suspected methamphetamine and heroin were found in the home.

One of the residents, John Allen, locked himself in a bathroom and attempted to flush a quantity of drugs, Hyatt said.

Officers broke in the door and Allen was subdued by a K-9 unit, Hyatt said, adding that Allen was evaluated for minor injuries sustained by the K-9.

Hyatt said the other resident, Kristina Dardo, was arrested without incident.

Kristina A. Dardo, 35, of Clarin Way in Peachtree City, was charged with two counts of drug trafficking, two counts of drug possession/sale/manufacture, one count of possession of a firearm/knife during the commission of a crime and one count of misdemeanor drug-related objects, according to Fayette County Jail records.

Based on an outstanding warrant from earlier this year, Dardo on Dec. 10 was also charged with six felony drug charges, a trafficking charge, possession of a firearm/knife during the commission of a crime and drug-related objects, according to jail records.

John K. Allen, 44, of Clarin Way, was charged with one count of drug trafficking, one count of felony tampering with evidence, two counts of drug possession, two counts of drug-related objects, possession of a firearm/knife during the commission of a crime, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon and obstruction, according to jail records.

Allen was also charged with drug trafficking and a controlled substance violation based on warrants from October 2020, jail records indicated.  

Also arrested at the Clarin Way residence was Charles R. Kilpatrick, 48, of Fayetteville, on a felony drug charge and possession of drug-related objects, according to Fayette County Jail records.

Pertaining to the search warrant executed at the Senoia Road residence, Hyatt said suspected methamphetamine and steroids were found at the residence.

Arrested at the Senoia Road residence was Yanni Ramlochun, 34, on felony drug charges and one count of drug-related objects, jail records said.

Hyatt said the welfare for a 3-year-old living in the house was referred to child services due to living conditions found there.

With both drug busts, Hyatt noted that neither of the residences were the subject of no-knock warrants, adding that officers had to force entry after the residents refused to comply.

  1. Oddly predictable when the mugshots hamper the usual race-baited “build a wall with Clayton;” keep “them out” rhetoric. How often do these enobled “Citizen” readers wait to see mugshots and residency claims before making their racial claims?
    Let’s see…

      • Spy – I ask myself the same question. We devote a remarkable amount of money in our country to apprehend, adjudicate, and house a lot of people who choose some other intoxicant instead of alcohol. And just as in all of our other wars since 1945, we might win some battles, but we have secured no victories.

        It is high time we rethink this entire enterprise.

    • I think if you looked at the suspects you would see that they came from another county/urban area, and are renters…I stand by “build the wall” and “keep cops on Hwy 74 and 54″… race has nothing to do with it except for statistics…too many rental homes in PTC…the ooze from Clayton and Fulton Co. see opportunity in Fayette Co.
      As for “Where are the victims?”…it affects the whole community…a danger to children, adults, too.

      • ..”affects the whole community”..

        Witness San Francisco’s mayor calling for a state of emergency due to the drug crises in her city. She noted enforcement of laws aimed at those who distribute drugs. Rather than defunding the police, the mayor now is taking a different tact.
