On December 30, 2022 at approximately 0122 hours, Deputy Justin McClain was dispatched and responded code 3 to 130 Salem Ln. Cornelia, GA in reference to a possible overdose.

Upon arrival, McClain made contact with a 10 year old boy, [WITNESS #1], who stated his mom was in the bathroom. Once inside the bathroom, McClain made contact with ERIN JUHASZ (complainant/witness) and a female laying on the bathroom floor who was unresponsive. The unresponsive female was identified as Zoe Jenkins (victim) and appeared to not be breathing. McClain observed Zoe’s lips to be blue and her face was very pale.

McClain administered one dose of Narcan which caused Zoe to take a deep breath but she did not wake up.

Fire/EMS arrived at this time and Zoe was turned over to them for further treatment. While in the bathroom, McClain observed a clear plastic container on the bathroom counter which had a large amount of a clear crystal -like substance inside suspected of being Methamphetamine.

Due to the amount of suspected Meth found, Investigator David Moulder was contacted and informed of the incident. Moulder advised he would be en route.

McClain made contact with Zoe’s husband, Andrew Waddell (witness/arrested), who stated he knew Zoe did drugs but it has been a while since she has. Andrew stated he help Zoe get clean and thought she was doing really good. Andrew stated he was in the garage working on ERIN’s car when she came into the garage yelling that Zoe was in the bathroom unresponsive.

While speaking to Andrew, McClain observed a black shotgun laying on the bed as well as a large coffee mug on the night stand which contained a large amount of cash. Andrew stated he works as a mobile mechanic and gets paid well. Afterwards, Andrew advised SGT Zach Beam, who was on scene at this time, that Zoe and himself were jobless.

ERIN stated she was visiting Zoe and letting Andrew work on her car. ERIN stated she was in the living room when she decided to ask Zoe if she could take a bath. ERIN stated once she walked into the bedroom, she saw Zoe laying in the bathroom floor turning blue in the face. ERIN stated she tried to wake Zoe up and when that didn’t work, she ran to get Andrew.

Once Fire/EMS had Zoe out of the house, McClain asked Andrew for his name and date of birth which was then given to dispatch. Dispatch advised that Andrew had a possible warrant out of Helen, GA for probation violation (warrant numbers 007000008,007000009 and 007000010). The warrants were confirmed as valid and Andrew was placed under arrest with his hands behind his back, checking the cuffs for fit and double locking them.

The pistol was removed from Andrew’s person before being placed in the back seat of McClain’s patrol car where he was seat belted in for his safety.

Andrew was transported to the Habersham County Detention Center where he was turned over to jail staff without incident.

McClain returned to 130 Salem Ln. to await Moulder’s arrival. Upon arrival, the scene was turned to over to Moulder for further investigation.
