Five people face drug charges after Habersham inmate dies

By Rob Moore Reporter

CLARKESVILLE — An autopsy is scheduled Friday, April 13, on a Habersham County Detention Center inmate who died while in custody earlier this week.

Information released by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and Habersham County Sheriff’s Office Thursday night identifies that inmate as Robert Mosely, 38, of Highlands, N.C.

Moseley died Monday, April 9, at Northeast Georgia Medical Center after experiencing a medical emergency at the jail on Sunday, April 8.

“During the investigation, agents established that Mosely utilized methamphetamine Sunday morning prior to his medical emergency,” a statement from GBI reads. “A search of the ail was conducted and methamphetamine was recovered. The investigation revealed that both inmates and person outside the jail were responsible for the methamphetamine being brought into the jail.”

Several arrests have been made on drug charges as a result of the investigation, including:

  • Krystal Chastain, 33, of Clarkesville, charged with conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, possession of meth with intent to distribute, and crossing a guard line with drugs;
  • Daniel Campbell, 38, of Clarkesville, an inmate, charged with conspiracy to distribute meth;
  • Christopher Kinney, 44, of Clarkesville, an inmate, charged with conspiracy to distribute meth, possession of meth with intent to distribute, and possession of drugs by an inmate;
  • Jason Mealor, 38, of Clarkesville, an inmate, charged with conspiracy to distribute meth, possession of meth with intent to distribute, and possession of drugs by an inmate; and
  • Billy James Webb 32, of Clarkesville, an inmate, charged with conspiracy to distribute meth, possession of meth with intent to distribute, and possession of drugs by an inmate.

Additional charges are pending completion of the investigation.

“The Appalachian Regional Drug Enforcement Office assisted GBI Cleveland with the investigation and was instrumental in the outcome of the investigation,” the GBI statement reads.

When the investigation is completed, it will be provided to the Mountain Judicial Circuit District Attorney’s Office for prosecution.
