SHEILA A. MATHEWS :::

The Griffin Police Department Special Investigations Unit, with the assistance of the Power Squad and Uniform Patrol Division, on Friday, Dec. 11, executed a search warrant resulting in four arrests and the seizure of narcotics.

The warrant was executed at 362 N. 19th St. Apartment G in the Pleasant Valley Apartments.

Agents located more than 95 rocks of crack cocaine with an approximate street value of $1,900. Other items commonly used in the distribution of cocaine were also located.

Arrested were Willie Edward Stuart, age 46, of the same address, who was charged with possession of cocaine, possession of cocaine with intent to distribute and possession of drug related objects; Danielle Maynor, age 61, of the same address, who was charged with possession of cocaine and possession of drug related objects; Eugene Dexter, age 64, of the same address, who was charged with possession of cocaine and possession of drug related objects; and Derrick Blackshear, age 44, of 1682 N. 2nd St. Extension, who was arrested on an outstanding warrant from Bleckley County.

According to SIU Special Agent in Charge Tony Thomason, the search warrant resulted from community complaints.

“This investigation stemmed from complaints called in by the community. Agent (Travis) Wick was able to obtain the needed information to apply for a search warrant and we executed it today,” Thomason said. “We are here to help rid the community of drug dealers and other bad actors. We appreciate the community partnering with us. I would like to remind everyone they can call and provide information to us on our drug tip line. If you choose to remain anonymous, you can.”

The GPD Special Investigation Unit drug tip line number is 678.692.0452.
