Two PTC men arrested on drug charges during golf cart safety check

Two Peachtree City men were arrested May 4 on drug and other charges during a golf cart safety check conducted by Peachtree City Police on the recreational path behind Ropers Path.

Kaland Shane Breeding, 20, was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of a Schedule II substance, possession of a dangerous drug, possession of a

concealed weapon, providing a false name to an officer and driving with a suspended license, according to department spokesperson Rosanna Dove.

Also arrested was 17 year-old Joseph Bernard Gentile on charges of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, two counts of possession of a Schedule II drug and two counts of possession of a dangerous drug, Dove said.

Dove said confiscated in the incident were 4.1 ounces of marijuana from one subject, a quarter-ounce of from the other subject, 25 prescription pills of which all but two were Schedule II controlled substances, and an unspecified amount of cash.

Dove said the golf cart safety checkpoint was conducted in the afternoon hours of May 4 at the three-way intersection behind Ropers Path. The purpose of the checkpoint was to check for license and registration requirements, Dove said.

Dove said the arrests were made after three subjects were stopped on a golf cart. Breeding, who was also the driver of the cart, had a marijuana leaf on his hat, which led officers to discuss his drug usage with him, said Dove.

Breeding was asked for his name and subsequently provided a false name to officers, said Dove.

“An officer conducted a K-9 search of the vehicle, which resulted in a positive indication by the K-9 for the presence of more narcotics. An officer's subsequent search led to the discovery of numerous baggies of suspected marijuana, prescription pills and various drug related objects,” Dove said.

A third arrest was made later during the safety check when 18 year-old Kelsey Kinsella, a passenger in another golf cart, was charged with possession of less than an ounce of marijuana, Dove said.

Dove said the golf cart checkpoint was conducted at the Ropers Path intersection during the hours of 3-5:30 p.m. A total of 108 golf carts were contacted, Dove said, adding that motorized cart information pamphlets were provided to all the cart operators.

Officers during the checkpoint issuesd10 citations, 11 pending warrants, five warnings and made three arrests, said Dove.

The government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it. - Ronald Reagan
