Probation warrant leads to drug arrest

By Ken Stanford Reporter
GAINESVILLE - An outstanding probation warrant against a Gainesville woman has led to her arrest on drug charges as well.

Lt. Scott Ware of the Gainesville-Hall County Multi-Agency Narcotics Squad (MANS) says Kaneesha Latandra Bailey, 22, is charged with Possession of Marijuana With the Intent to Distribute, Possession of Marijuana, Obstruction of an officer, and Superior Court Probation Warrant.

Lt. Ware said officers from the Hall County Sheriff's Office Warrant Division arrested Bailey Friday on an outstanding probation warrant and was also charged with obstructing the arresting officers.

"Additionally," Ware said, "Ms. Bailey was found in possession of six baggies of marijuana. A MANS agent responded and charged her with the marijuana."
