I-85 traffic stop
A traffic stop on I-85 in Oconee County led sheriff’s officers to place charges of receiving stolen goods against three people. The Sheriff’s Office reports one of its deputies was alerted Thursday afternoon by a KIA automobile that failed to yield while attempting to merge onto the interstate. The charges were filed against driver Matthew James Hardy, 29-year old Anderson resident; and passengers Jerry Lee Eaton Jr., 22-year old Marietta; and Cassidy Yvett Seyda, 17 year old Anderson resident. According to the Sheriff’s Office, a check of serial numbers showed three guns found inside a camo bag to have been stolen in Jackson County, Georgia.
