Traffic stop leads to arrest of 69-year-old woman and 21-year-old man for Cocaine trafficking

A couple from Clayton, Georgia in Rabun County has been apprehended for engaging in the illegal activity of trafficking cocaine.

The Rabun County Sheriff’s Office made a traffic stop on Thursday, a little before 4 p.m., on a car traveling north on GA 15/US 441 near the River Falls Campground.

As the deputy engaged in a conversation with the driver, Abraham Montiel, 21, his colleague observed Deborah Sir, a 69-year-old woman, sitting in the passenger seat, appearing slumped back.

When the deputy approached the woman, he immediately noticed a strong smell of marijuana emanating from the car.

The deputies requested to search the car, and Montiel willingly granted them permission to do so.

Upon further investigation, deputies discovered multiple baggies and a substantial quantity of what appeared to be cocaine.

Both Montiel and Sir were apprehended and accused of engaging in the unlawful activity of Cocaine Trafficking, as per the violation of OCGA 16-13-31. They were subsequently transported to the Rabun County Detention Center for the purpose of being processed.

Sheriff Chad Nichols praised the exceptional work of our K9 team, highlighting the agency’s ongoing commitment to eradicating drugs from our community.
