911 Hang Up Results in Citation for Possession of Marijuana at Winder Residence

Winder police responded to a 911 hang up and left with suspected marijuana.

A police officer who responded to a 911 hang up at a Winder residence left with suspected marijuana.

On Feb. 7, 2012, an officer responded to 1468 Box Circle in Winder. Upon approaching the front door of the residence, the officer smelled an odor of marijuana. The occupant who answered the door, Deborah Ray, said she was on the phone and had unknowingly dialed 9-1-1. 

When the officer asked about the smell of marijuana, the resident reportedly admitted to smoking the drug and said, "I have several joints inside the residence," before volunteering to turn over smoked marijuana joints to the officer, according to an incident report. The resident also agreed to let the officer search her home, "but please don't destroy my house," she said.

During the search, the resident handed over a clear sandwich bag containing burned marijuana cigarettes.

When the officer asked Ray if she had any more marijuana in the residence, she responded, "There might be a little bit in my daughter's room."

Ray's 22-year-old daughter gave the officer a metal pipe with burned residue and a small, clear bag containing a green, leafy substance that smelled like marijuana.

Ray was given a citation for possession of marijuana less one ounce and was instructed to appear in court.

The drugs-related items were  placed in a clear evidence/property bag and taken to the to be tested and destroyed.

The charges were dropped on these people because they had nothing to go on. When a neighbor calls in a complaint, Barrow will make up stuff like you called 911 to try and get into your house. They couldnt prove she called them and dropped the case ha ha

When you say "Barrow will make stuff up" are you referring to the Barrow County Sheriff's Office? They had nothing to do with this. It was the Winder PD. By the way, the daughter was arrested for DUI in Gwinnett County about a month later. Lovely mugshot of her on the internet if you Google her name!

I knew this girl very well when she lived in Barrow County and also looked it up. She was never convicted of a D U I get your facts straight and stop wasting my time. I do know that she had a few problems with her x boyfriend that contributed to all this and since then has CLEANED her life up. She is a very pretty girl and so glad she is doing well now. Ok, I need to get back to recent news this is old old old

I never said said she was convicted. I said arrested. I too am happy she has cleaned up.

What BS. The report states when winder came to the door the pothead said she unknowingly dialed 911. no neighbor called, paranoid are we? Charges dropped bc they couldnt prove a neighbor called, makes no sense. they left the house with a pipe and joints as stated in the report above. What nasty mother gets stoned calls 911 and hangs up and rats out her daughter. LOSER!!!!

Funny how nobody was arrested, ha ha. I know these people well and the daughter was the one in possesion the mother just took the charge. Get it right. I am very good friends with these people and they are great people. The charges were dropped for some reason or another; you must be some nasty trash that is jealous. This is such old news !
Sadie Thompson September 02, 2012 at 01:47 PM
OH and besides its just pot. Get over it... They are great friends of mine and pointing nasty fingers at someone else will only get them pointed back at YOU three times more. I'm sure if we all looked you up, there would be charges for something much greater. WE ARE SURE OF IT LOL. Btw, she's the cleanest woman in the entire neighborhood lmao. We are moving on to present news now like the manager at McDonalds who got run over by some crazy chick. See ya soon in the next Barrow Patch news.
