Sheriff’s Elite BlackHawks takes 4.2 Pounds of Marijuana & Gun off the streets on Thanksgiving SHERIFF LEVON ALLEN

After numerous complaints of Speeding on Tara Blvd, Hwy 85, Hwy 138, and Hwy 42 The Elite Blackhawk Traffic Unit was reinstated when SHERIFF LEVON ALLEN took office to educate & enforce the laws.

On 11/23/23, The Deputies of Clayton County Sheriff's Office were observing the Thanksgiving Holiday by patrolling the streets of the county. SHERIFF LEVON ALLEN has stated time and time again nights, weekends, or Holidays won’t stop his office from arresting anyone breaking the law.

The BlackHawks conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle at Old Dixie Rd and Frontage Rd. During the traffic stop, Deputies smelled an odor that was not the traditional Turkey, Ham, sweet potatoes that you smell in the air on Thanksgiving, but this was the odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle. 

A search was conducted and 4.2 pounds of marijuana was located along with a firearm.

Antiono Sinkfield will not spend Thanksgiving with family and friends, he has been booked into the Clayton County Jail, where he will reflect on why he didn't choose another county to drive through with 4.2 pounds of marijuana.

Remember, if you are breaking the law there are 158 other counties to choose but #NOTINCLAYTON.
