The DeKalb County Sheriff's office in Georgia has no known recording studio on the premises, but it might want to consider expanding its list of public services, considering the number of musicians that have passed through its halls recently.
On August 22, the county sheriff's office welcomed Bobby Brown into its facilities when the singer was arrested and jailed for violating a probation sentence ([article id="1477163"]"Bobby Brown Arrested While Eating Out With Whitney"[/article]). And now it's Kyle Norman, singer with the hit R&B group Jagged Edge, who is in trouble with authorities.
Norman is expected to turn himself in to the DeKalb County Sheriff's office Wednesday morning because of the bonanza of contraband discovered at his home on Thursday, including 13 pounds of marijuana, two firearms and $6,000 in cash, a sheriff's department spokesperson said.
Deputies had gone to Norman's home in the Stone Mountain neighborhood of Decatur to serve him with an arrest warrant related to his involvement in a theft ring, specifically for being on the receiving end of stolen property. While they didn't find Norman, a sweep of the premises yielded a large plastic bag of marijuana, 9 mm and .45 caliber handguns, and the cash. In addition, six men and one woman who were on the premises, ranging from 18 to 26 years in age, were arrested.
Norman was not in Decatur at the time, but according to the sheriff's office spokesperson, his lawyer contacted DeKalb County deputies to say Norman would turn himself in. In addition to the original theft charges, Norman faces felony charges related to the possession, sale and manufacturing of marijuana.
Neither representatives for Norman nor Jagged Edge would comment at press time.
