The Spalding County Sheriff’s Office on Monday conducted an operation resulting in the closure of a local business, Open Box Freight.

The GRIP contacted Sheriff Wendell Beam for information, but he declined to comment, stating only that he will issue a press release later this week.

The GRIP asked Beam to confirm information obtained from a confidential source citing the action was undertaken by the Special Operations Unit, which handles narcotics operations, but Beam said only that pertinent details will be released later.

He did confirm Open Box Freight is closed for business.

The GRIP will follow this developing story and report additional information as it becomes available.
