The property is 16 Crumley Road and 26 Crumley Road, Aragon and also includes a 1984 F150 and a New England Firearm Handi rifle.
Steven Wayne Crumley, 38, owns the home at 16 Crumley Road along with the pick-up truck.
Crumley and Sylvia Elizabeth Adkins, 19, were arrested Jan. 25 by Polk County Narcotics Enforcement Team (NET) officers in the raid. He faces multiple charges, including drug possession, possession of tools for the commission of a crime and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, according to police reports.
Crumley was released on bond from the Polk County Jail May 13. Adkins had been released on bond earlier.
District Attorney Robert Brooks appeared in motion court Tuesday asking the judge to strike the Crumley’s court answer in legal proceedings and to enter a judgment.
Crumley’s attorney, Karen Wilkes, had submitted her client’s answer to the court as to why he should keep his property.
Among the reasons, according to court paperwork, are that the drugs were not found on the property and the property was not a place of distribution or manufacturing. Paperwork also states Crumley didn’t possess any drugs and was unaware anyone around him had drugs.
Crumley’s answer also contends the drugs found amounted to one gram or less of cocaine and less than four ounces of marijuana, and falls short of the Georgia law allowing for forfeiture of property in drug cases.
Meanwhile, Crumley’s mother, Gloria Crumley, wrote a handwritten note to Brooks begging him not to take the house at 16 Crumley Road.
Mrs. Crumley said the property had been in Glenn Crumley’s family for more than 40 years. They had bought it from a family member and had let their son, Steve, live there while he paid the note on it.
She said her son had been “clean” from drugs and was paying the note. Mrs. Crumley wrote to Brooks they have a buyer for the property if he would let them keep it.
“We are not rich and don’t have the money for a lawyer. Please let us sell the property and Steve move somewhere else,” she wrote.
