4 Arrested With Meth And Large Amount Of Cash In LaFayette

LaFayette, GA – Sunday, February 18, 2024

Four individuals were apprehended in LaFayette, Georgia, on Friday when law enforcement officers discovered drugs and a significant sum of money at a property on Clark Court off Corinth Road. The operation was carried out by agents from the Lookout Mountain Judicial Circuit Drug Task Force, the Walker County Sheriff’s Office, and officers from the Georgia Department of Community Supervision.

During the execution of a search warrant at the Clark Court property, authorities uncovered approximately 12 ounces of methamphetamine along with a substantial amount of U.S. currency. The discovery led to the immediate arrest of two men and two women.

Arrested individuals included:

  • Anthony “Chip” Crowe from LaFayette – trafficking methamphetamine
  • Anita Cox from LaFayette – trafficking methamphetamine
  • Jessica Cox from LaFayette – trafficking methamphetamine
  • Clay Borman from Trion – fleeing and attempting to elude (felony), possession of methamphetamine (Chattooga County warrant), cruelty to children (Cherokee County, Alabama warrant)

Additionally, while authorities were conducting the search, a vehicle arrived at the property but quickly fled the scene. The driver was recognized as a wanted individual with felony warrants. A pursuit ensued, and the fleeing suspect was ultimately apprehended on Monroe Green Road.

The Lookout Mountain Drug Task Force, comprising multiple law enforcement agencies, including the Walker County Sheriff’s Office, Chattooga County Sheriff’s Office, Dade County Sheriff’s Office, LaFayette Police Department, and Trion Police Department, spearheaded the operation.

This joint effort led to the successful arrest of the individuals involved in drug trafficking and related offenses. The seized narcotics and cash underscore the commitment of law enforcement to combat drug-related crimes in the community.
