Rome man found with over 200 Schedule II pills during traffic stop for broken taillight in Chattooga County

According to a Chattooga County Sheriff’s Office incident report, on March 16th, 2021, at around 1:14 AM, Deputy Wilks was patrolling the area of GA-1 (Hwy 27) near Silver Hill Road when the deputy observed a vehicle driving north with a defective passenger-side taillight. Deputy Wilks conducted a traffic stop near Gore Fire Hall Road. While approaching the vehicle, the deputy saw the driver roll down the window and instantly smelled a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle. The driver was identified as Ny’kia Nicholson of Silver Creek, and the passenger was identified as Rodrea Cooper of Rome. The deputy had trouble identifying the back seat passenger as he appeared nervous. The driver stated that “she smoked earlier and that there shouldn’t be any marijuana in the vehicle.” He also stated that “there was about 150 pills in the bag” K-9 Deputy Robinson arrived on the scene and assisted Deputy Walks. Deputies asked the back passenger who they had yet to positively identify to step out of the vehicle. Chattooga E-911 was able to identify the man as Trevion Williams, 21, of Rome. Trevion stated that he was nervous because he was just released from prison and should be tagged as an organized gang member through Georgia. Deputy Robinson asked Williams if he had any drugs or weapons on him and asked him to empty his pockets. Trevion removed a Ziploc bag from his shirt pocket that had 200 Suspected Oxycodone Hydrochloride pills blue in color imprinted with M/30 in it. All occupants were then removed from the vehicle, where a small amount of suspected marijuana was found under the driver’s seat. Driver and passenger were later released without incident. Trevion Williams was arrested and transported to the Chattooga County Jail charged with Possession of Schedule II Oxycodone Hydrochloride, Possession With Intent to Distribute, and Drugs not Kept in Original Container.
