Habersham traffic stop results in drug trafficking charges

By Bryan Pirkle Reporter

Three people were arrested in Habersham County on Wednesday after a traffic stop led authorities to the recovery of heroin and methamphetamine.

The traffic stop was initiated by the Habersham County Sheriff's Office after the driver of the vehicle, Eric Lee Martin, 27, failed to stop at a stop sign.

The Appalachian Regional Drug Enforcement Office says they were called in to assist with the investigation after deputies discovered the drugs, and the three suspects were placed under arrest and booked into the Habersham County Jail.

Martin faces charges of "Possession of methamphetamine, Possession of a controlled substance, Trafficking heroin, Failure to stop for stop sign."

The two other suspects, Tyler Lee Gibson, 23, and Brianne Marie Ross-Rummel, 21, were both charged with "Possession of methamphetamine and Trafficking 
heroin."

The case remains under investigation.
