A Savannah man was arrested Friday in connection with selling controlled substances after a probe by the Chatham-Savannah Counter Narcotics Team. 

In June, CNT began investigating 48-year-old Zachary Myers after getting a tip that  Myers was selling controlled substances, according to the CNT.  Undercover agents gained Myers trust and buying crack cocaine and heroin from Myers, according to the CNT. 

Shortly after 6 a.m. Friday, the CNT, Savannah-Chatham Metro Police SWAT Team and the Chatham County Sheriff's Office K-9 Unit executed a search warrant at Myers home on East 38th St. in Savannah. SWAT was used in the operation due to Myers having several violent felony convictions, according to CNT. 

The search warrant resulted in the seizure of heroin worth about $4,000 and more than $2,900 in cash, according to the CNT.

At the time of the search warrant, Myers was charged with sale of a controlled substances (crack cocaine, heroin) and use of a telecommunication device. 

Myers is being held at the Chatham County Detention Center. More felony charges to include sale of controlled substances and trafficking heroin are expected to be filed against Myers. 

Myers' latest arrest was his 23rd booking in Chatham County, 10th drug-related arrest and his second arrest by CNT, according to the CNT.
