Note to future inmates: Tell officer you have drugs hidden on you before you get to jail


A couple of domestic disputes and an arrest from a three-months-old traffic accident are among the incidents addressed by Fayette County Sheriff’s Office deputies in the past few days.

According to an FCSO spokesman, deputies responded late in the evening Aug. 23 to a residence on Canterbury Lane where a suspect had an altercation with her father stemming from his displeasure with her coming home under the influence. She allegedly damaged his car and a portion of the home. Anushay Khan, 22, was arrested on a felony count of criminal damage to property in the second degree.

A single-vehicle accident in May in the area of Sandy Creek Road and Jenkins Road resulted in the driver being taken to Grady Memorial Hospital and spending quite some time there, according to a report. Upon her release, Tamikyo Bell, 43, of Decatur was arrested for going too fast for conditions, a seat belt violation, and failure to maintain lane. She also faces a felony charge of possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, as a gun was found at the scene.

A traffic stop was conducted the evening of Aug. 22 for lack of a tag on a vehicle. The ensuing investigation revealed the presence of marijuana as well as psilocybin, a hallucinogenic drug commonly known as “mushrooms.” Rachel Glover-Malcolm, 32, of Stockbridge was arrested on a felony drug charge as well as marijuana possession and an obscured/missing license plate. 

Deputies responded the morning of Aug. 22 to a domestic incident at a residence on Hwy. 92, and the investigation revealed that the suspect had been in a verbal altercation with several family members and also pushed his sister, causing her to fall to the ground. He had in his possession some methamphetamine around his private area that was not discovered at the scene with a standard pat-down, but it was found upon his entrance to the Fayette County Jail. That discovery resulted in a felony charge of crossing the guardline with contraband.

Cesar Rosales-Turcios, 25, of Fayetteville was also charged with drug possession/sale/manufacture, another felony, as well as battery/family violence.
