Carrollton, GA (September 16, 2022) – After receiving complaints involving possible drug trafficking, possible animal abuse, and possible elder abuse, the ACE Unit responded to 123 Austin Avenue on September 12, 2022. When investigators arrived, it was apparent that several individuals were living or “squatting” in the bug infested home where drug activity was taking place. After a consent search of the residence, Lisa Dobbs Phillips was arrested and charged with the following:
-Possession of Methamphetamine

A preliminary test of the suspected heroin revealed that the substance was also positive for fentanyl. The drugs will be officially tested at the GBI Crime Lab in Atlanta. Adult Protective Services was also called to investigate the living conditions of an elderly female who lives in the home.
