ACWORTH — An Acworth couple is facing drug possession charges after police say the pair had medication not prescribed to them that they intended to sell, following an arrest at their home Friday.

Cobb County Police say Jeremy Williamson and Trishanna Williamson had 35 hydrocodone pills, seven alprazolam pills, and two film strips of Suboxone.

Jeremy Williamson told police that “money found near the pills belonged to him. Wrapped around the money were drug notes regarding the sale of prescription pills,” the arrest warrant stated.

Jeremy Williamson, who was previously convicted on Jan. 10, 2002, in Bartow County for the manufacturing and distribution of marijuana, was charged Friday with felony possession of a firearm.

He had a Jiminez 380 semiautomatic pistol, and “ammunition for the gun was found in the closet …and inside a safe where his money was located,” the arrest warrant states.

None of the medication was prescribed to the couple.

Hydrocodone is commonly prescribed to treat moderate to severe pain, alprazolam is used to combat anxiety disorders and Suboxone is a narcotic medication for the treatment of opioid dependence.

Trishanna Williamson told the arresting officer she planned to sell the pills to friends of hers, according to the arrest warrant.
