Fulton County men charged

Thursday, September 15, 2005

Two Fulton County men have been charged with multiple drug offenses following a Sept. 2 drug raid at the Saddle Campgrounds in Saddle.

Rex A. Foster, 37, and Johnny M. Stewart, 47, are each charged with simultaneous possession of drugs and firearms, a class Y felony; felon in possession of a firearm, a class C felony; possession of a controlled substance, methamphetamine, a class C felony; and possession of drug paraphernalia with intent to use, a class C felony.

Investigator Brian Sanderson with the 16th Judicial District Drug Task Force said a burglary at the old Saddle Store prompted law officers to search a cabin at the campgrounds being occupied by Foster and Stewart.

During their search of the cabin investigators found a mirror with white powder residue on its surface, scales, four Darvocet tablets, a .22 caliber semi-automatic pistol, $495 in cash and other drug paraphernalia, Sanderson said.

Foster received an additional felony charge for possession of the Darvocet, which is a Schedule II narcotic.

According to the arrest affidavit, officers also found items that were stolen from the old Saddle Store.

Sanderson said Foster and Stewart were transported from the scene to the Fulton County jail.

Foster allowed officers to search his home, but a subsequent interview at the Fulton County Sheriff's Department was cut short due to Foster's "demeanor," Sanderson said.

Foster is being held in the Fulton County jail in lieu of a $100,000 bond.

Stewart posted a $100,000 bond Sept. 6.

Both Foster and Stewart are slated to appear in Fulton County Circuit Court Sept. 26.

Additional charges in the case are pending.
