Teens face charges in connection with suspected drug house
ROSWELL, Ga. —
Two teens are facing serious drug charges after tips from concerned neighbors led Roswell police to a suspected drug house.
Riley Bloomer, 18, and Angelo Jankowski, 17, are each charged with drug possession with intent to distribute, according to an incident report obtained by Channel 2's Mike Petchenik.
A neighbor told Petchenik she was suspicious something was going on at the house on East Lake Drive in Mountain Park.
"About a month ago, I started noticing a lot of commotion, a lot of car lights," she said. "People would come in, stay 15 minutes, then get in their car and leave again."
The neighbor said her dog was barking in the middle of the night because people were coming and going and there was loud music coming from the home.
"This is a quiet neighborhood. Everyone's friendly," she said. "We don't like that stuff in here."
According to the incident report, when officers arrived, they smelled marijuana coming from the home. Once inside, the report said detectives found suspected marijuana, hash and prescription pills packaged and ready for sale, as well as cash, a pellet gun and knives.
"It's crazy, it's absolutely crazy," the neighbor said. "I'm glad they stopped it. I was wondering what was going on."
Neighbors Joan and Bill Robertson live across the street and said they had no idea what was going on in the house. They, too, were suspicious of the traffic.
"We don't get that many cars in a day, much less 25 minutes," said Ms. Robertson. "It's ludicrous. This is the last place really. It's a nature preserve. What are they preserving over there?"
According to the Fulton County jail web site, Bloomer and Jankowski both posted a $50,000 bond and were out of jail. Petchenik left messages at their parents' residences for comment, but as of this writing, hasn't heard back.
