Hamilton Mill Teens Arrested on Drug, Battery Charges

March 29 warrant service results in one Dacula teen being arrested for battery, another for obstruction and drug charges.

A Gwinnett County Police visit to Hamilton Mill to serve an arrest warrant against one teen ended with the arrest of another teen on drug and obstruction charges.

At approximately 3 a.m. on March 29, officers were enroute to a Ridgemill Circle address to serve an arrest warrant against Tyler Jacovetti, 17, for a charge of battery when they spotted three young males at a vacant home on nearby Ridgemill Terrace.

The three males were identified as acquaintances of Jacovetti. While officers were speaking with the males, one officer noticed the garage door of the vacant house had been damaged. The officer was on his way to investigate the damage when he spotted a black digital scale in the front yard of the home. Two of the males said the third male, , tossed the scale in the yard when police approached. Before police could question Green further, Green turned and ran. After a short foot chase, Green tripped and fell and was taken into custody.

When the officers handcuffed Green, both noticed a strong odor of marijuana and found a clear plastic bag containing green leafy material that field-tested positive for marijuana. The marijuana had been separated into smaller bags and appeared to be packaged for individual sale. Officers also found $417 in cash.

The other two males admitted smoking marijuana at Jacovetti’s house. Both accused Green of providing the marijuana. Green admitted smoking marijuana before refusing to answer further questions. 

While officers were interviewing Green and the two males, Jacovetti arrived at the scene and was taken into custody.

According to police records, the battery charge against Jacovetti stems from a March 11 incident at a party on Smoke Hill Drive in Hoschton. Jacovetti, along with four other males -- including one of the males that was temporarily detained along with Green on March 29 -- is alleged to have beaten a 17-year-old teen. The victim sustained numerous injuries including a broken nose, lacerations to the ear and mouth, a sprained wrist and numerous scratches and bruises. The victim told police that Jacovetti and the other four males are part of a gang called “Crew X” or “Good Fellas.”

Green and Jacovetti were transported to the Gwinnett County Jail without incident. The other two males were released at the scene.

Jacovetti was released from jail on March 29 on a  $11,200 bond. According to detention center records, Green remains jailed on charges of obstruction, possession of a drug related object and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. Bond has been set at $13,800.

Laws can also be changed. The motorcycle helmet laws in Florida, for example, were repealed years ago due to the constant, legal negotiation of groups opposed to these laws. Whether you agree with the law or not, the government process allows for the peacefull and legal changing of the law. A law is to be obeyed until it is changed. Failure to obey will result in arrest and conviction. That is the way of civilized society. The failure to obey a law is a personal choice. The young adults in this issue will learn soon enough that breaking them is not in their best interest.

Living near this street, I can report that we have a drive thru drug selling ring! This "child" has been given every opportunity that a private school can afford. He comes over here to deal because his father lives down the street-rental. Mommy lives in another community in HMILL. I want to know WHERE he is getting his drugs to sell. I also want to know whom is in the gold fancy sports car& the new red pickup, that drops by to get drugs each weekend. A call to the cops, after seeing the same 4 cars driving around & around one night produced a "collar." If your child was arrested that night-open you eyes! This young man & his friends, while out one night being LOUD, spoke to me about girls, their sport's team, school, drugs,& their worries about loosing their girlfriends. Why were they out so late? Mother used to say,"Nothing good happens after11pm!" Right again. All HMILL neighbors need to be on the look out because he will be out again & selling again. What to look for: empty homes,cul de sacs, teens out late at night walking & "TALKING LOUD."They are stoned/high &don't realize they are so loud. Too many cars driving past your house over & over- they are waiting for their turn to get in line for the DRIVE UP DRUG WINDOW/BUSHES! Call aware police, give them tag numbers, car color & style. LET THEM DO THE REST! Once you go to sleep,they come out. Drugs are illegal. Stop getting high & maybe you will see reality for once.Transfer his skills to a legal job! HE IS GOOD AT THIS!

Residents of HMILL are judgmental! They "judged" to get a good education. They "judged" to go to college. They "judged" to work hard to be able to move into a quality school district. They "judged" to provide their children a certain lifestyle. They make the hard decisions & WORKED to get to HMILL! Yes, they are JUDGMENTAL because many of them have given their young lives to provide for their children. Being judgmental is not a bad thing. The bad thing is that some in HMILL are addicted to drugs & they have the money to continue to engage in their addiction. Others are so busy with LIFE that they do not see their children getting off course. My concern is that many parents want their children to be POPULAR, so they allow their children to be out late & party like adults. Drinking & drugs become a part of their lives. Since you can not go to the pot store & buy pot; they are now involved in illegal activities simply from getting high one night. If your child goes out this weekend to a party or to a spend the night, do not believe that they are dancing and singing around the piano! THIS young man has a busy business, I wonder where his clients are buying from while he is in jail? Some of these kids seem like good kids on the outside. They spoke about being on a team at high school, & they worried they girlfriends were cheating on them, & they talked about their parents. Judgment is necessary now days to determine what is important in your life. Be Judgmental, it is your life!
