SCSO Special Ops investigations result in seven narcotics related arrests; additional suspects being sought

STAFF REPORT :::

Two investigations being conducted by the Spalding County Sheriff’s Office Special Operations Unit concluded this week, resulting in the arrests of seven people. Additional warrants have been obtained for four more individuals.

Special Operations agents executed search warrants at 104 Gainer Road in northeast Spalding County and 1210 Ethridge Mill Road, just outside the southern limits of the city of Griffin.

According to a press release issued by Sheriff Darrell Dix, both search warrants led to the recovery of quantities of methamphetamine, marijuana and objects associated with the sale and distribution of both substances.

“The residence at 104 Gainer Road has been visited twice by our Special Operations Division, once in October of last year and now this week. Michael “Slack” Davis and his brother Johnny Davis have allowed this residence to become a known drug den used for the purchase and use narcotics. Agents located some of the exact same people doing the exact same thing again this week that were there previously. Their behavior did not change, so our response was more direct this time,” Dix said, who added that once on scene, agents noted what were referred to as “obvious” code violations and animal control issues. “We were able to work with Spalding County Animal Control and Spalding County Code Enforcement and they responded with us. Once on scene, they were able to gather evidence and issue multiple citations to the homeowner. This neighborhood is comprised of good, hard working people and the Davis’ have allowed their drug house to become an eye sore and blight on an otherwise good community. We hope that this ended this week. Warrants have been issued for the arrest of the other occupants of this residence for their continued participation in the crimes occurring there.”

Arrested as a result of the search warrant executed at 104 Gainer Road were:

Michael “Slack” Davis, who has been charged with possession of methamphetamine, disorderly house, possession of less than one ounce of marijuana and possession of drug related objects.

Johnny Davis, who has been charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug related objects and disorderly house.

Cristi West, who has been charged with possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug related objects.

Janelle Dinkins, who has been charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of less than one ounce of marijuana less than one ounce and possession of drug related objects.

Ellis Williams, who has been charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of less than one ounce of marijuana and possession of drug related objects.

Warrants were also obtained for Salina Ross and Christopher Arnold stemming from that investigation. Authorities say they are now being sought on those outstanding warrants.

Special Operations agents on April 6, executed a second search warrant at 1210 Ethridge Mill Road after their investigation indicated that Keith Seiber was allegedly using and selling methamphetamine from the residence.

During the investigation, agents reportedly located intelligence that placed Seiber in possession of handguns and rifles. Based on this information, the Spalding County Sheriff’s Office SWAT Team conducted the entry and secured the residence.

Seiber was not home at the time of the search warrant execution. However, other residents identified as Brandi Queen and Courtney Thomas were at the residence.
Investigators learned that Thomas had an outstanding warrant for his arrest out of the city of Griffin, which led to his arrest for that warrant.

Officials say the search of the residence yielded quantities of prescription medication, marijuana and methamphetamine.

Arrested at the Ethridge Mill residence were:

Brandi Queen, who was charged with possession of methamphetamine, two counts of possession of Schedule IV narcotics, possession of drug related objects and possession of less than one ounce of marijuana.

Courtney Thomas, who was charged with possession of less than one ounce of marijuana, possession of drug related objects and the outstanding warrant from the city of Griffin.

Warrants were issued for Keith Seiber and Michael Queen for multiple violations of the Georgia Controlled Substances Act. They are both being sought on these outstanding warrants.

“Those that were not arrested at these scenes have had warrants issued for their arrest. They need to turn themselves in immediately; there is no prize to win for running. Prior to our search warrant execution at his residence, Seiber was already wanted on outstanding warrants from both Henry and Butts counties. We believe he thought Spalding County would be a safe place for him to hide, but he thought wrong,” Dix said. “Our pursuit of stopping crime in this county no matter where it’s at or who it is will be relentless. I want to stress that the Spalding County Sheriff’s Office takes drug complaints seriously. Even though we are unable to act on some as quickly as others, they are all still looked in to. If you have information on drug activity, no matter where it is occurring, call us. Ask to speak with a narcotics investigator or leave a tip on our anonymous tip line. This week, these subjects were shown what I have said from the start – you can stop or we will stop you.”
