A 40-year-old Walker County, Georgia woman – was recently arrested on drug charges, after she filed a report with the Chattooga County Sheriff’s Office about a collision with a deer – while she was returning home, from Cherokee County, Alabama. According to the report Cassandra Utley met with a deputy in Trion, to report the deer collision. She stated that she was returning from visiting a friend in Alabama when she’d struck the deer – roughly two miles past the state line in Chattooga County. She traveled all the way home to Walker County, and it was then her husband told her to call the Chattooga County Sheriff’s Office, and get a report about the deer collision.
While the deputy was speaking with the woman about the collision – that was when he noticed the smell of marijuana coming from the vehicle. After a search, the Sheriff’s Office deputies found marijuana, and several containers of cocaine – packaged for resale. Utley also admitted, that she had a bag of cocaine hidden in her underwear – after the deputy warned her about crossing the guard line at the jail with drugs.
Utley was charged with possession of cocaine, possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, the possession of marijuana less than one ounce and the possession of drug related objects.
She was then booked into the Chattooga County Jail.
