CHATHAM COUNTY, Ga. – The Chatham-Savannah Narcotics Team in collaboration with multiple agencies including the FBI, took down a major drug organization operating mostly in the Tatumville neighborhood.
The year long investigation identified the key players in the drug ring, resulting in 7 Federal indictments and 11 superior court indictments (pictures below.)
Agents were able to find how the drugs were making it into the area. They say semi-trailer trucks were bringing large amounts of cocaine, MDMA and stolen guns from Houston, Texas and Atlanta. They estimate between 10 and 50 kilograms were being brought in with a street value of $360,000 to 1.8 million dollars.
Search warrants were served on several locations in the county including Tatum Street, White Bluff Road, and 57th Street. In them they found various amounts of powder and crack cocaine, MDMA, marijuana, firearms, and money.
Two of the 16 indicted are still being sought and CNT is hoping you can help find them. They are Marcus Scott and Eric Brown.
Scott is described as a 6ft tall black man weighing around 150 pounds with short black hair and brown eyes. Agents believe he’s left the Savannah area.
Brown, who’s believed to be in Hinesville, is 5 feet 11 inches tall with short black hair and brown eyes.
Anyone with information on the two men is asked to call CNT at 912-652-3900 or Crimestoppers at 912-234-2020.
