Cherokee County Herald - - NEWS -

On Satur­day, July 8, the DeKalb County Sher­iff’s Of­fice re­ceived a call to go do a wel­fare check of a child, due to pos­si­ble drug ac­tiv­ity at a res­i­dence. When deputies and Geral­dine Po­lice Of­fi­cers ar­rived at the door of the res­i­dence they de­tected a strong odor of mar­i­juana. Once in­side the res­i­dence deputies and of­fi­cers found a small amount of mar­i­juana, at which time the DeKalb County Drug Task Force was con­tacted and a search war­rant was is­sued for the res­i­dence. DHR was also called to the scene due to chil­dren be­ing pre­sent. As a re­sult of the search two pounds of Mar­i­juana, sev­eral guns and a large amount of cash was found in­side the res­i­dence.

As a re­sult Lisa Cran­ford, 59, of Geral­dine was ar­rested and charged with Un­law­ful Pos­ses­sion of Mar­i­juana 2nd and Un­law­ful Pos­ses­sion of Drug Para­pher­na­lia; Charles Ja­cob Cran­ford, 22 of Daw­son was ar­rested and charged with Un­law­ful Pos­ses­sion of Mar­i­juana in the first de­gree, un­law­ful pos­ses­sion of drug para­pher­na­lia and chem­i­cal en­dan­ger­ment of ex­pos­ing a child; and Des­tiny Hope Banks, 20 of Geral­dine, who was also ar­rested and charged with chem­i­cal en­dan­ger­ment of ex­pos­ing a child.

Sher­iff Har­ris says “The Deputies, DeKalb County Drug Task Force and Geral­dine Of­fi­cers did a great job on notic­ing the strong odor. We are glad to get those chil­dren out of a sit­u­a­tion like this.”

On the same day at ap­prox­i­mately 8:15 p.m., the DeKalb County Sher­iff’s Of­fice re­ceived a call to Col­lege Street in Crossville about a stab­bing. When Crossville po­lice and deputies ar­rived the vic­tim, Michael Woods, 48, was lay­ing in the street re­spon­sive, but heav­ily bleed­ing.

Ac­cord­ing to the press re­lease, Woods had come over to the sus­pect’s res­i­dence to pick up his daugh­ter who is en­gaged to the sus­pect. Shortly af­ter Woods ar­rived an ar­gu­ment be­gan be­tween him and the sus­pect. The sus­pect asked Woods to leave the prop­erty, when Woods at­tacked the sus­pect. The sus­pect then stabbed Woods. DeKalb in­ves­ti­ga­tors pro­cessed the scene. No ar­rests have been made at this time, be­cause of the on­go­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion on this case.
