  • FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
    April 24,2015

    Sheriff Stacy Nicholson releases the following information:

    A consolidated effort, and simply a prime example of “working together” leads to a substantial arrest.

    On April 22, 2015, Surveillance Officers of the Georgia Dept. of Corrections made contact with Billy Paul Towry of a Hwy. 382 address for the purposes of conducting a probation search. During this contact, the Officers discovered an amount of marijuana in the possession of Towry. The Probation Officers contacted Deputies Bryce Deboard and Thomas Woody to assist them.

    A further search by the deputies netted nearly a half pound of marijuana. The Deputies contacted an agent with the Zell Miller Mtn Parkway Drug Task Force to assist them. During further investigation, the Officers were able to make a connection between Towry and a criminal street gang operating out of the Metro Atlanta area.

    Towry was charged with Violation of the Ga Controlled Substances Act and participation in street gang activity. The original contact with Towry was based upon him being one of Gilmer County’s registered sex offenders being actively monitored by Georgia Dept. of Corrections and the Gilmer County Sheriff’s Office.

    Two rounds of severe weather are possible on Saturday. The first round is associated with an upper level disturbance and is expected mainly before 10 AM. The second round of thunderstorms is likely in the afternoon along a cold front. There is the potential for severe weather with both systems. Any severe thunderstorm that develops will be capable of producing damaging wind gusts, large hail and tornadoes. Localized flooding is also possible. http://www.weather.gov/atlanta.

  • THANK YOU! The time and efforts on the part of ALL those who made the COMMUNITY FORUM last night possible are to be commended. The information I have added to my "tool belt" will help me to better educate the parents and youth I work with at the Boys & Girls Club in Ellijay. I am disappointed in the lack of participation by the PARENTS whose tween and teens could become involved in SEXTING and RX DRUG abuse. Keep up your efforts to inform!
