Two Flowery Branch residents face trafficking charges after $26,600 in methamphetamine was found at a home Wednesday off McEver Road.

Julie Anne Reed, 43, and Roger Ray Fisher, 32, were arrested Wednesday in the 6300 block of Paradise Point Road, according to a news release from the Multi-Agency Narcotics Squad. Agents said they found 9 ounces of meth at Fisher’s and Reed’s home.

Both are charged with trafficking meth and possession of meth with intent to distribute. They were booked into the Hall County Jail.

“We got active information this week that that individual was dealing and followed some investigative leads that led us to his residence, where we did the search,” MANS Lt. Scott Ware said.

To be charged with the offense of trafficking, an individual must be in possession of at least 1 ounce of meth.

There was no indication the meth was manufactured locally, Ware said, consistent with trends.

“For the most part, in the past five to 10 years it’s been that way. Or to put it another way, we don’t get that many labs anymore around Hall County,” Ware said.

A small amount of cash was seized, he said.

Reed and Fisher both had their first court appearance before a Hall magistrate judge on Thursday.

Neither was eligible for bond — only a Superior Court judge can set bond for certain charges.

Reed requested representation from the public defender’s office.

Both have asked for committal hearings, set for Jan. 2 in Magistrate Court.
