ACE Search Warrant Leads to Multiple Arrests and Seizure of Drugs, Firearms, and Currency

Carrollton, GA (April 26, 2023) – Earlier this month, the ACE (Aggressive Criminal Enforcement) Unit executed a search warrant at 606 S. Park Street, Venue at Carrollton Apartments, as part of an ongoing drug investigation also linked to a February shooting investigation at The Foundry apartments.   

The following were arrested and charged:

Joseph Thompson, age 22, of Carrollton, Georgia – Sale of Marijuana, Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Distribute Marijuana, Possession of Oxycodone, Possession of a Machine Gun

Jhakil Murphy, age 22, of Carrolton, Georgia – Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Distribute, Possession of a Firearm During Certain Crimes

Kaitlyn White, age 21, of Carrollton, Georgia – Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Distribute

All three subjects were taken to the Carroll County Jail where they were later released on bond.   

Detectives discovered and seized several pounds of suspected marijuana, oxycodone pills, promethazine, large amounts of currency, and several firearms. Of particular concern was one of the firearms found, believed to have a “switch” which converts the pistol to shoot fully automatic.
