Fentanyl, ecstasy, seven pill press machines, a stolen shotgun and about 20 caged-up dogs.

Those are some of the items Cobb County Police said they found in the Acworth home of 35-year-old Samantha Myles Feb. 7 after following up on a complaint of animal abuse and narcotics use.

Myles was arrested at the home, which is near Cherokee Street and Shiloh Road, along with 28-year-old Shavon Monae Fullington-Goodrich of Atlanta.

According to Myles’ arrest warrant, police found nearly four and a half pounds of ecstasy around the home, with ecstasy residue on the pill presses.

Officers also reported finding 6.5 ounces of fentanyl, a powerful opioid. According to the Drug Enforcement Agency, just two milligrams of fentanyl is a fatal dose for most people.

Department spokesman Officer Neil Penirelli said no charges were filed relating to the dogs the officers said they found in cages in the garage.

“According to the investigator, there were no animal cruelty crimes, therefore they were not taken from the property,” he said. “If they were used for fighting or anything of that nature, the animals would have been removed.”

Fullington-Goodrich faces felony charges relating to drug trafficking, receiving stolen property and manufacturing controlled substances, as well as misdemeanor marijuana charges and is being held without bond.

Myles was charged with possessing less than one ounce of marijuana and was released on $1,320 bond Feb. 8.
