Eviction leads to drug charges in Lula

POSTED: March 16, 2013 12:30 a.m.

Two Lula men were arrested on drug charges Thursday after Hall County officials found marijuana and other paraphernalia while enforcing an eviction notice.

Robert David Foltz Jr., 37, and Michael Henry Eads, 44, are being held in Hall County jail without bond.

Both men are charged with manufacturing marijuana, possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

Agents and deputies with the Hall County Sheriff’s Office arrested the men in the 5600 block of Maiden Lane in Lula.

During the eviction, deputies found three marijuana plants in one of the rooms. Foltz was home at the time of the eviction and Eads was not, officials said.

Agents from the Multi-Agency Narcotics Squad obtained a search warrant for the house, finding processed marijuana, marijuana seeds, digital scales, three semi-automatic pistols and one shotgun, fluorescent lighting, ballasts, fans and insulating materials all consistent with items commonly used to produce marijuana, Lt. Scott Ware said.

The men appeared in Hall County Magistrate Court today via video feed from the jail, where Judge Margaret Gregory set a committal hearing for March 29.

At the committal hearing a judge will decide if there is enough evidence to send the case to Superior Court.

Because of the charges, bond cannot be set until the men appear before a Superior Court judge.

They have both requested indigent defense from the public defender’s office.
