Officers report drug arrests from Lake McIntosh to north Peachtree City


A North Carolina man is in custody after being apprehended on a felony drug charge in Peachtree City earlier this week.

Officers arrived late in the evening Aug. 23 at the entrance to Lake McIntosh to assist Fayette County marshals with a suspicious vehicle, according to a police report. While on the scene, officers requested a K9 unit, and the dog made a positive indication of drugs, which led to a probable cause search.

A clear bag of suspected methamphetamine and a glass pipe were located during the search, according to the police report. Seth Lupek, 38, of Pitsborough, N.C., was arrested and taken to Fayette County Jail while awaiting warrants.

The jail log showed him facing a felony charge of drug possession/sale/manufacture as well as other charges that included loitering or prowling, failure to display license, improper parking or stopping, and driving with a suspended license.

Elsewhere in Peachtree City, yet another drug arrest was made as a result of a window tint violation. A report indicated that an Aug. 22 midday traffic stop was conducted near Dogwood Church for that reason, and the officer detected the odor of marijuana upon making contact with the suspect.

A probable cause search revealed MDMA in the suspect’s possession. Tony King, 35, of Fairburn was transported to Fayette County Jail on a hold for warrants. The jail log shows that his charges include drug possession/sale/manufacture (a felony), marijuana possession, and excessive tint on windshield.
