In March of 2013 the MCSO narcotics unit along with DEA agents conducted an investigation into the sale of methamphetamine by April Flood from her residence located at 826 Old Highway 411.
During this investigation multiple controlled buys of methamphetamine were made from April Flood.
In May of 2013 Flood was arrested by the Georgia State Patrol and charged with Trafficking in methamphetamine. Also at this time the MCSO and DEA executed a search warrant at Flood’s residence where more methamphetamine and a firearm were seized.
In July of 2013 Flood was indicted in United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia (Rome) on four counts of distribution of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), two counts of distribution of a controlled substance of (50) grams or more (methamphetamine) and one count of knowingly, intentionally, and without legal authorization, use and maintain places, namely 826 Old Highway 411, and 22.30 acres, more or less on Wilbanks Road for the purpose of distributing a controlled substance (methamphetamine).
In January of 2014, Flood was sentenced in United States District Court to ten years in prison.
In 2011, Flood’s daughter, 19-year-old Megan Long, died while apparently hiding meth in her body.
Long, who was five months pregnant, hid the drugs in her body during a routine traffic stop after allegedly being asked to do so by Flood.
Long and her unborn child later died at the hospital after the bag containing methamphetamine busted.
