NE Ga police blotter: more arrests in Hart Co drug raids, homicide probe in Gainesville

The Sheriff’s Office in Hartwell is reporting the arrests of four more suspects stemming from last week’s raids on two homes in Hart County: that brings to six the number of people charged with trafficking marijuana in Hart County. Drug agents say they found forty pounds of pot, thousands of dollars in cash, firearms, and a car valued at more than $100 thousand.

Gainesville Police have a homicide on their hands: they say they have arrested 23 year-old Diandre Dyden and charged him in the death of Latasha Smith, whose body was found early Monday in an apartment in Gainesville.

Investigators in the Hall County Sheriff’s Office were, at last report, trying to track down a suspect in the armed robbery of a convenience store. It happened in east Hall. Cash was stolen. No injuries were reported.

The Georgia State Patrol has released the name of the Hall County woman killed in a weekend car crash: Allyson Burdeshaw was 46 years old, from Gainesville. The Hall County Sheriff’s Office says her car was found in a creek bed in north Hall.
