Sheriff Henderson released a statement that detailed the distribution of the drugs in Towns County.

“These drugs were targeted for specific locations in Towns County to be cut into smaller amounts and delivered to specific drug dealers in Towns County. This will impact the supply chains of drugs coming into Towns County and sold to our community and youth.

1. Trafficking Marijuana
2. Trafficking in methamphetamine over 400 grams
3. Possession schedule IV-controlled substance

5. Possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime


“The six pounds of methamphetamine and other drugs designated for the Towns County community is significant.
Sheriff Henderson cannot give enough praise for the Sheriff’s Drug Investigative unit and deputies that put in so many long hours on these investigations. In the short five months, our commitment and multiple arrests has impacted drug dealers and supply to our community,” the statement added.
