By Steve Winslow Anchor/Reporter

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has arrested two women from Fannin County as part of an ongoing investigation within a fentanyl distribution case.

The GBI said they arrested Megan Lowery, 36, of Morganton, Laura Kilgo, 55, of Ooltewah, Tennessee, and Amanda Lang, 41, of Blue Ridge, on Sept. 7.

The three were pulled over for a traffic violation on Highway 5 in McCaysville when police reportedly found about 75 suspected fentanyl pills in Lang’s possession. Kilgo also had about 250 suspected fentanyl pills and suspected methamphetamine.  

Further investigation revealed that the women had driven to a home in Tennessee to pick up the pills. 

Tennessee law enforcement authorities later executed a search warrant at the home in question and seized over 500 suspected fentanyl pills, money, & two firearms, and went on to arrest 10 people on drug-related charges. 

The GBI says the three women have been booked in Fannin County, charging Lowery with possession of Drug Related Objects, Kilgo with trafficking fentanyl, possession of methamphetamine, and possession of drug related objects, and Lang with trafficking fentanyl and possession of drug related objects.
