SHERIFF LEVON ALLEN’S Elite Blackhawk Unit removes Guns and drugs from the streets of Clayton County!

On 05/15/23 Sheriff Levon Allen’s Elite Blackhawk Squad was conducting traffic enforcement in the area of I75-N and Forest Pkwy. Blackhawk deputies observed a vehicle traveling 85Mph in a 65Mph zone. As the vehicle passed, the passenger looked back with a nervous stare as the emergency lights flashed behind them. 

A traffic stop was conducted and to the Blackhawks unit's surprise, it was not NASCAR’S famous brothers Kurt and Kyle Busch. However, the Smith brothers Alex Smith the driver, and Robert Smith the passenger were just stopped in the wrong county at the right time. The passenger stated he had a small amount of marijuana in the vehicle and that he had thrown out 2 ounces when he passed deputies on the shoulder. 

During A search of the vehicle deputies located a Mossberg Rifle and 6.4 pounds of marijuana stuffed in a suitcase in the trunk also $12,000 cash. 

This is a clear example that speeding through Clayton County will not be tolerated. These Brothers did not cross the checkered flag at the end of the race, these brothers were arrested and transported to the Clayton County Jail.
