MARIETTA — Four young Cobb County men were arrested Aug. 21 when the Marietta-Cobb-Smyrna Narcotics unit raided a house on Fairfield Court.

According to the warrant, when police entered the home, Charles Taylor of Marietta fled to his bedroom and attempted to barricade the door.

Once police entered the room, they say they found 8 grams of marijuana, a scale and money, including $20 that was used during a “controlled buy” by officers, the warrant stated.

A Browning 20 gauge shotgun and multiple marijuana roaches were also found inside the bedroom, according to the warrant.

Taylor was charged with two felonies and released Aug. 23 on a $15,000 bond.

Tanner Glass of Marietta was arrested on three felony counts for possession of .88 pounds of marijuana with intent to sell, possession of 1.5 grams of cocaine and nine tablets of Alprazolam, a generic version of the psychoactive drug Xanax.

According to the warrant, the drugs were found in Glass’s bedroom and he was released the next day on a $20,000 bond.

Cody Mclaughlin of Acworth and Scott Mckagen of Powder Springs were both in the living room at the time of the raid and were each charged with a misdemeanor for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana.

The warrant stated that Mclaughlin allowed the Cobb County police to look through his book bag and found 7.9 grams of marijuana.

Mckagen gave the Cobb County Police consent to search his Black Ford F-150 truck, where officers found a plastic bag containing 2.2 grams of marijuana, according to the warrant.
