 Rebecca Lynn DixonRebecca Lynn Dixon Two members of the Statesboro-Bulloch Crime Suppression Team were patrolling the Bay District area following complaints of illegal activity.  Shortly after arriving in the area Master Deputy Mark Guarino and Deputy First class Norman saw a Jeep Grand Cherokee merge from Starling Road onto Red Hill Church Road heading toward Georgia Highway 67.  They stopped the car after noticing the driver, later identified as 29 year old Rebecca Lynn Dixon of Garden, was attempting to buckle her seat belt when she spotted the patrol car.  Dixon told Norman she did not have her drivers license with her.  She gave a name and address of woman he had stopped about a week ago in the Brooklet area.  She finally gave her real name after being shown a picture of the woman whose identity she claimed after being placed in the patrol car.  Norman determined there were outstanding Bulloch County warrants against her.

  Officers found 12 pills determined to be hydrocodone in the purse of 47 year old Terri Amanda Bell of Ellabell, a passenger in the car.  They also found her to be possession of suspected methamphetamine.


  Both women were arrested on multiple charges.
