Two Dawsonville residents are facing multiple charges after a traffic stop and subsequent discovery of drugs led to their arrests on Sunday. 

Everett Edward Skeen Jr.,46, and Rrona Elaine Skeen, 43, were arrested Oct. 24 by the Dawson County Sheriff’s Office just after midnight on Oct. 24. 

Skeen Jr. was charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana less than an ounce, tampering with evidence and obstruction of an officer. The tampering and obstruction charges are felonies. 

Rrona was charged with possession of a controlled substance and crossing guard lines with weapons, drugs or intoxicants. Both the possession and guard lines charges are felonies.

Rrona was driving her car around 10:45 p.m. on Oct. 23 when she crossed the solid white line on the outer side of the lane along Kelly Bridge Road, near the intersection with Govan Road. 

When a DCSO deputy stopped her, he wrote her citations for failure to maintain lane and not using a child safety seat. 

Skeen Jr. refused to exit the car when asked by the deputy. He admitted to destroying a large quantity of narcotics while staying in the vehicle, according to two warrants. 

He had a white crystallized substance believed to be methamphetamine in the seat where he was sitting, according to one warrant. He admitted it was his when the deputy found it. 

Another warrant stated the marijuana was discovered when Skeen Jr. was being taken into custody. 

Rrona had what was believed to be meth stashed in two different places upon her arrest. 

Before she arrived at the jail, law enforcement located her wallet containing the drug. After entering the grounds of the Dawson County Detention Center, deputies discovered she had also hidden the drug in her bra. 

On Tuesday, Oct. 26, Rrona was released on a $5,700 bond, while Skeen Jr. remains in custody, according to Dawson County Sheriff Jeff Johnson.
