I'm glad Cherokee County got involved. I have been calling Bartow County for over a year trying to get them to check out the house on Copperhead.But as usual they did nothing.Thank You Cherokee County.You also need to check out some of the people that was arrested from Ala.They were doing more than selling drugs. I've been told there is a body buried on that property.

I've heard there is more than one body buried there. I've heard three. A girl and two boys.

Supposedly they were out together and went to a party there and ODd on something and died and ended up buried there.

I don't know if it's true or not, but I do know that those kids vanished. It was in the paper.

Marc Peyton's wife knew what Steve was wearing the night he went missing.She knew things that was not in the papers or tv.The police from Cherokee County got a search warrent to search the property,but Peyton was tipped off by someone in Bartow and was ready for them when they got there.Steves mom was blamed for tipping him off.Yea right!!!!!CC had to go thru BC to get the warrent,thats how he was tipped off.They keep telling his mother they can not get another one because THEY say They don't have a reason.When Peyton was caught selling drugs, Wasn't that a reason?

I believe after someone has been arrested for a felony (especially drugs), and is lucky enough to make bail then he or she can be searched at any time or looked at for any other suspicious behavior.

The problem is when they become a narc for the county, they then get help from the county and are allowed to continue there ways because thats how they catch others

What is even worse is when single girls with children do this.They live on welfare, get the drugs free,sell them and if they get caught they can count on the welfare checks to help pay fines.Check out "drug arrest" Calhoun Ga topix.
