  • Deputies with the Newton County Sheriff’s Department discovered four grams of methamphetamines after serving a search warrant Wednesday night.
    Newton County Sheriff Ken Copeland said deputies arrested Mark Burdge, 41 and Janelle Williams, 31 at their residence at 6855 Highway 43, near Spring City.
    Copeland said Burdge and Williams had scales and a large sum of cash on hand at the time of the arrest.
    “What’s strange is we’ve served previous warrants at that residence,” Copeland said. “We served warrants there in February 2010 and February 2011. Each time we’ve obtained either narcotics or stolen property.”
    The couple was arrested Wednesday for possession and distribution.
