A married couple from Georgia are in deep shift after a raid on their “party house.” Clarence Geter, 44, and his wife, Tomeka Geter, 42, face numerous charges after a good amount of illegal moonshine, as well as crack, was discovered on their property, last week.
The Geters’ spot was seemingly a place where local folks came to turn up. On their property, they constructed a building equipped with a stripper pole and a bar. According to Lt. Col. James Yarbrough of the the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office, “The recently constructed building also had no sewage system set up – only a single pipe running out the back of the house.”
However, folks got lit in more ways than one at the Geters’ makeshift strip club. Neighbors received complaints about drug dealing on the premises, which led to an investigation. As part of the probe, undercovers made controlled purchases of crack rocks.
Early Thursday morning, officers with the Coweta County Crime Suppression Unit and Newnan Police Department executed a search warrant on the property. The search yielded 26 gallons of moonshine, taken from several trucks, 15 grams of crack, a .380 handgun with ammo and $1,838 in cash. Officers also seized five vehicles, including a 1958 Buick. Clarence Geter (known in the neighborhood as “Peanut”) admitted to slinging the drink and crack from the residence and trading rocks for labor on the property. His wife was aware of his hustling, “but prayed he would eventually remove himself from that lifestyle,” according to the Newnan Times-Herald.
Regardless, both Clarence and Tomeka Geter were charged with possession of narcotics with intent to distribute, and sale, possession, concealment, storage, or conveyance of untaxed alcoholic beverages. Clarence Geter caught an additional charge of possession of a weapon by convicted felon.
