SAVANNAH, GA (February 12, 2020) – Today, a collaboration between SPD’s Special Weapons and Tactics Team (SWAT), Violent Crimes Task Force (VCTF) and Gang Unit resulted in the apprehension of a subject who was in possession of multiple firearms, drugs and drug paraphernalia.
In January, the VCTF was made aware of possible drug-related activity in the area of Royal Inn Court by concerned community members. Task force members began an investigation into the possible activity and were able to identify suspects in connection to the illegal activity. Tazjuan Arrington, 20, was identified as a suspect and was subsequently arrested today after a search warrant at a residence on Royal Inn Court revealed he was in possession of seven firearms, with one being stolen, and drugs.
Arrington has been charged with possession of marijuana over one ounce, possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, possession and use of drug related objects, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and theft by receiving a firearm. He was transported to the Chatham County Detention Center without incident.
