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.

You would think the parents of these HM teens would get their heads out of the sand and do something with their kids! I would think if my child had been arrested multiple times there is a HUGE problem that needs to be dealt with and fast! These kids are damaging the area we live in as well as jeopardizing everyone's safety by allowing these drug dealers to do as they please. SAD!

Crew X and the fellas aren't "gangs"

Y, your a complete idiot. The only reason that th drug dealers are around is because a substance 100% less harmful than alcohol is not permitted for sale. If the government would pull their heads out of the ground and realize that this war against marijuana is a complete joke then they could regulate it. It is much easier to get marijuana than alcohol. Nobody has EVER died from using marijuana. There has been no other recorded harmful medical effects other than reduced lung capacity from smoking it, which is obvious. You want to get rid of the drug dealers? You take away their ability to sell it by regulating it for sale for everyone 21 and over. Then it drives the price down and takes away a majority of the drug dealers as most only sell marijuana. The ones that are left must sell hard drugs that can actually harm you, and the amount of people that buy those are much less that those that use marijuana.

Y "100% less harmful than alcohol" "no other recorded harmful medical effects - other than reduced lung capacity from smoking it" A real ringing endorsement there for sure You may believe its 100 percent safer, but the reality is probably not so clear cut. Maybe it should be marketed like booze and cigarettes, but it’s no magic bullet. Perhaps they could legalize it and then tax it into oblivion, its worked before…

"K" needs to learn the difference between "your" and "you're".

When the Mexican drug mafia are thanking the US government (formally and on camera) then perhaps the laws need to be looked into. I don't use drugs, but I do think its silly to have laws that do nothing but harm the public and help the dealers make millions.
The Pharaoh April 04, 2012 at 08:13 PM
Congratulations on your grammatical strengths, Susan Smith! I sure bet "K" is ashamed now! Just to clarify for anybody who read the word "gangs" and got worried: there aren't any actual gangs here, just a group of friends who are equally stupid, calling themselves something besides "group of friends".

Parents get their heads out of the sand??? really?What do you propose the parents do?First of all dont make comments on some thing you do not know what you are talking about .Being somewhat close to the situation.I know that one of the kids parents is dealing with the death of their mother .So the head in the sand comment not good at all
Kelly April 05, 2012 at 02:09 AM
Yes, one of the mothers has been dealing with the awful and devastating loss of her mother. And has had to juggle her kids, as well as take care of her Mother. I am sure the loss and illness in the family has contributed to this young man's mental state. So all you judgemental stuck up snobs. Give someone a break, we are not perfect and NOONE has the right to judge. I hope your kids never get in trouble. Maybe you will gain some empathy to others, Hopefully you will never have to walk in their shoes. Or maybe it would be good for you to see the coin from the other side. Even kids from HM get in trouble. I pray for him to straigten himself out. Yes, he deseves punishment, but a bit of support would be nice too.

"there aren't any actual gangs here, just a group of friends who are equally stupid," Yep that's how the "Crypts' got their start back in the day ...
HM April 05, 2012 at 08:58 PM
I also know some of these parents, and they are trying desperately to help these boys... Not alot of help out there for the kids who fall into this drug infested world we have handed down to them Y - you are the reason Hamilton Mill adults have a bad name in Gwinnett, judging people you just don't know!
The Pharaoh April 06, 2012 at 01:24 AM
By which you mean crips?
Kelly April 09, 2012 at 12:17 AM
"I would think if my child had been arrested multiple times there is a HUGE problem that needs to be dealt with and fast!", Well it seems that the shoe has never been on the other foot Y. So no, you don't know what you would do.
Y April 09, 2012 at 12:46 PM
EXCUSES... that is what is wrong with our society everyone has excuses!
Jman April 09, 2012 at 02:58 PM
Keep on enabling them and we will see them doing real time
Y April 09, 2012 at 03:02 PM
Y April 09, 2012 at 03:04 PM
K...who is the idiot here. NO MATTER WHAT YOU THINK "POT" IS ILLEGAL! End of story. Doesn't matter is your 21 or 91 it's illegal...
Jman April 09, 2012 at 03:33 PM
And where all all these kids getting money from for their pot? Hmm my car has been broken into twice in the last year.
Kelly April 09, 2012 at 04:12 PM
Well considering they are still in jail it doesn't look like anyone is enabling them. Noone is making excuses for their actions. This could happen to any family and its is not the parents fault. Hopefully a tough lesson will be learned and they can become productive members of society. Anyone can change. I am living proof.
Dacula Momma April 09, 2012 at 06:03 PM
I'm sorry that this mother has lost her parent, but you must go on for your children! Time for some tough love!!
HM April 10, 2012 at 12:24 PM
Y,Jman,Dacula Momma- NO ONE has made excuses. I think all someone meant was the situation with her mom may have interrupted the progress she thought she was making with him. One of my best friends lives down from this family, I know she was gone more than she wanted taking care of her dying mom. Maybe he took advantage, I'm sure she feels terrible having been gone to be with her mother as she died, meanwhile look what happened at home....not an excuse "Y". I know the boys dad was killed in car accident, so just the mom, step dad not involved. Boy has lots of struggles himself, NO EXCUSE but a complex situation to correct, not overnight fix. From what I hear this boy was a model child, never in trouble, good grades, until last year when he met some new "friends" so mom first tried more rehabilitative measures, hoped it would work. Last I heard she currently refuses to bail him out of jail, won't see him and has told her child he is no longer welcome at home. Not sure DACULA MOMMA what else you want. You people should be ashamed, from what I hear this mom IS "going on for her children" and has never stopped. They would like to move away but market not good obviously, and I know she understands how cruel and judgmental you people in H Mill are. Y, Jman, Dacula Momma- Shame on you people in your glass houses, this family has been through hell and back. Maybe stop casting your nasty comments and uninformed advice toward this family you know nothing about. Praying for YOU!
Kelly April 10, 2012 at 01:07 PM
Take a walk in the mothers shoes for one day...... Don't worry she has more shoes.
Jim S April 13, 2012 at 07:58 PM
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!
Cynthia Montgomery April 16, 2012 at 04:05 PM
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!
