Clayton County police have charged five relatives with drug-and-weapons violations following a traffic stop Wednesday night.

Policce spokesperson, Lt. Tina Daniel, said Ralph Otravious Mitchell, 29, of Jonesboro, was stopped by police after an undercover investigation. The stop led detectives to 2141 Loma Court, near Morrow.

Daniel said officers seized two, stolen, semi-automatic handguns; marijuana buds with an estimated street value of about $60,000; $4,000 in cash, and $600 in counterfeit bills.

In addition to Mitchell, police arrested the Loma Court homeowner and three others. Daniel said all five are related to one another.

Mitchell is charged with forgery, possession of drugs, weapons possession by a convicted felon, first offender probationer, and obstruction of an officer.

Evette Scott-Ramsey, 29, also is charged with possession of drugs and weapons, and forgery. Felipe Dion Mitchell, 35, who has outstanding warrants from Clayton County, is charged with possession of drugs.

Sean Leon Ramsey, 43, is charged with possession of drugs, financial transaction card fraud and theft by deception.

Tashima Monique Blyther, 33, is a fugitive on outstanding charges in Clayton County since 2009, said Daniel. She is charged with possession of drugs, and a probation violation.

Daniel said other charges are still pending. All five are being held in the Clayton County Jail.

"violations following a traffic stop"

.......Question : If the investigation on these individuals was ongoing, then why did the police wait until it went into our public streets ?
