SPECIAL REPORT: Drug traffickers operating Sandy Springs rehab center

Quote
11Alive News has learned that two metro Atlanta men who recently pled guilty to federal drug trafficking charges have been operating a Sandy Springs facility for recovering addicts for several years.

In October, federal prosecutors announced the indictment of Drew T. Green, Thomas Malone Jr. and eight others for drug trafficking, money laundering and conspiracy, alleging they were operating one of the largest synthetic drug cartels in the country.

Federal prosecutors say Green and Malone's company Nutragenomics sold millions of dollars worth of chemicals used to manufacture so-called designer drugs like synthetic marijuana and bath salts.
...
11Alive News has learned that at the same time Green and Malone were building their synthetic drug empire they also founded a non-profit organization whose mission was to help people struggling with addiction and mental illness.

According to the Georgia Secretary of State's Office, the Pam Green Foundation was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 2010.

The annual registration with the Secretary of State's Office lists the same CEO, Drew T. Green, and the same physical address as Nutragenomics.

The Pam Green Foundation is currently operating a "Sobriety Living Home" for recovering addicts at a Sandy Springs duplex.

And you wonder why DCH hasn't shut down Narconon? Oh yeah, there's this, too:

We were threatened by a lawyer today for a story that I did on the removal from office of a Sandy Springs assistant solicitor after only a month in office. While some of our colleagues softened their stories in the face of this kind of intimidation, I have to give props to my peeps - we beefed our story up. http://www.wsbradio.com/news/news/crime-law/newest-lawyer-sandy-springs-solicitors-staff-fired/nTmND/

Good work!!

Lance Dyer, Sandy Springs council, and Pete Combs and the team at WSB radio deserve gig kudos for this.  ||O||

Newest lawyer of Sandy Springs solicitor’s staff fired

A month after she was hired, the newest lawyer on the Sandy Springs solicitor’s staff has been fired.

Jeannine Malone was hired by the Riley McClendon Law Firm on December 3, 2012, to act as assistant solicitor for the town of Sandy Springs. Riley McClendon represents both Sandy Springs and John’s Creek. Her appointment caught Lance Dyer of Breman by surprise.

“Well, the problem in my mind is that Ms. Malone is the wife of Thomas Malone, Jr., who is a self-admitted drug trafficker,” Dyer said.

In fact, Thomas Malone, Jr., will be sentenced later this month after reaching a plea agreement with federal prosecutors in Lafayette, Louisiana. Under the agreement, Malone, along with Drew Green of Roswell, pleaded guilty to charges of drug trafficking in the sale of a synthetic pot product called “Mr. Miyagi.”

Dyer’s 14-year old son, Dakota, committed suicide died last year after ingesting Mr. Miyagi.

After realizing that Jeannine Malone is married to Thomas Malone, Jr., Dyer said he searched state business records and found documents that led him to believe Jeannine wanted to carry on her husband’s work in selling chemicals to make synthetic drugs.

On August 30, 2012, Adam Malone, Thomas Malone, Jr.’s brother, registered two companies – Uphoric Naturals, LLC (http://www.bizapedia.com/ga/UPHORIC-NATURALS-LLC.html) and Natures Uphoria Marketing Enterprises, LLC (http://www.bizapedia.com/ga/NATURES-UPHORIA-MARKETING-ENTERPRISES-LLC.html). In both cases, the sole officer listed was Jeannine Malone. The names of those companies are very similar to the names of two companies founded by husband Thomas Malone, Jr. and his federal court co-defendant, Drew Green, who has also pled guilty to drug trafficking charges and is also scheduled to be sentenced in Lafayette, Louisiana, federal court later this month. They are called Nature’s Uphoria (http://www.bizapedia.com/ga/NATURES-UPHORIA-LLC.html) and Nature’s Uphoria Marketing (http://www.bizapedia.com/ga/NATURES-UPHORIA-LLC.html) (http://www.naturesuphoria.com/index.php).

“She’s used her legal expertise, along with coaching from other legal experts possibly, to facilitate and continue the synthetic drug operations,” said Dyer, “whether it’s through wholesaling in bulk quantities or creating what I call shell or ghost companies for her husband to continue their operations.”

So why would Ms. Malone want to be a Sandy Springs solicitor? Dyer said he was suspicious.

“I see everything but good intentions,” Dyer said. Attorney William Riley, who hired Ms. Malone, did not return calls from WSB Radio News. He was quoted elsewhere as saying he was unaware of her husband’s background until she told him about it earlier this week.

Dyer said he brought Malone’s background up to a Sandy Springs Police officer who ran the matter up his chain of command to the chief, city manager and mayor. By Wednesday, Jeannine Malone had been fired, he said.

In a statement to Channel 2 Action News, Jeannine Malone said, “I resigned my professional relationship with the City of Sandy Springs so that the City would not be part of any discussion about my husband's legal issues.”
