SAVANNAH, GA. (November 1, 2013): Four suspects have been charged and others are being sought after Central Precinct Patrol and Crime Suppression Unit officers joined the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department SWAT team in raiding three houses Friday.
The woman and three men were among 10 people who were detained after the 1:30 p.m. raid of houses in the Cann Park area. Officers served search warrants and seized marijuana, crack cocaine and various drug-related objects. The drugs were all packaged for distribution.
The raid followed a six-week investigation by the precinct’s Tactical Investigations Unit that stemmed from citizen complaints of violence and drug activity in the residential area. More arrests are anticipated.
Central Precinct Commander, Capt. DeVonn Adams, pointed out Friday’s action was a continuation of the Total Focus operations his officers have been conducting all year and will continue.
“This was a significant action that helped us continue to clean up criminal and drug activity that plagues neighborhoods that deserve better,” Adams said. “These individuals have been working in this area for some time and residents have suffered because of it. With their help, we have made a major dent in this operation and taken some dangerous individuals off our streets.”
Jessie McGee, 29, a three-time convicted felon, was charged Friday with the sale of controlled substance, attempt to violate the Georgia Controlled Substance Act and possession of a controlled substance with the intent to distribute.
Travis Young, 32, also a three-time convicted felon, was charged with two counts of sale of controlled substance.
Stephanford Hall, 38, was charged with two counts of sale of controlled substance and possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute.
And Felicia Jackson, 52, was charged with possession of controlled substance with intent to distribute.
