Investigations conducted by the Spalding County Sheriff’s Office Special Operations Unit resulted in four arrests and the seizure of firearms and marijuana.

According to a press release issued by Sheriff Darrell Dix, these investigations resulted in the execution of two search warrants by the SCSO SWAT Team.

Arrested were Dontavious Collins, age 26, George Collins, age 22, and Karmesha Green. All three suspects were charged with possession of marijuana, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and possession of drug related objects.

The second search warrant was conducted at 114 Sunset Drive. This investigation began when agents learned an individual was allegedly importing THC oil from other states.

That search warrant resulted in the recovery of approximately 70 THC oil vape pens, marijuana, Xanax, Suboxone and one firearm. Also seized was one vehicle and approximately $600 in currency.

Arrested was Marcus Cox, age 26, who was charged with possession of a Schedule I narcotic, possession of a Schedule I narcotic with intent to distribute, possession of a schedule IV narcotic, possession of a schedule IV narcotic with intent to distribute, possession of a Schedule III narcotic, possession of a Schedule III narcotic, possession of marijuana less than one ounce, possession a firearm during the commission of a crime and possession of drug related objects.

“These operations and arrests are a continuance of our efforts to make Griffin and Spalding County safer. From gang members using drug sales to fund their efforts, to registered sex offenders that are violating probation and posing a continued threat as made evident by their violations, and others who choose to violate the law, we will continue to be aggressive in enforcement,” Dix said. “If you choose to violate the law, you are not welcome here.”
