Two people were arrested after an unsuccessful attempt to hide a wanted woman from authorities. Two Barrow County Sheriff’s deputies visited an East Wright Street apartment in an attempt to serve Evelyn Darlene Landers, 48, of 271 East Wright Street in Winder, with a warrant for probation violation.

Upon their arrival, the deputies saw Landers’ vehicle parked outside the residence.

The deputies made contact with apartment resident Travers Jerworn Ray, 33, and asked him if Landers was present. Ray informed the deputies he had kicked Landers out of the apartment a week prior.

When questioned about the presence of Landers’ vehicle, Ray said the car had been parked at his residence for a month. One of the deputies had been to the residence within the past month and said the vehicle had not been there previously.

Due to the presence of Landers’ vehicle, the deputies asked for and were granted permission to search Ray’s residence.

Upon entering the bedroom, one of the deputies noticed a red bra and a pair of women’s denim shorts. When questioned about the items of female apparel, Ray said the clothing belonged to Landers and that he was waiting on her sister to retrieve the rest of Landers’ possessions. The deputy also noticed a gold purse in the bedroom. According to the report, a prescription bottle with Landers’ name was in plain view inside the purse.

Deputies again asked Ray where Landers was and again Ray denied having any knowledge of the woman’s present location.

Deputies continued searching the residence and eventually ended up in the kitchen. One of the deputies opened a cabinet door and “observed a white foot and red furry robe.”

The deputy drew his taser and ordered Landers out of the cabinet. She and Ray were allowed to get dressed before being taken into custody.

Landers was served with the warrant for probation violation and a warrant for misdemeanor obstruction. Ray was also charged with misdemeanor obstruction for hiding Landers and lying to deputies regarding her whereabouts.
