SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Moses Marvin Keith Mike, 31, of the 2000 block of Florida Ave., has been charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and violation of parole by officers assigned to the Savannah Impact Program who were backing up his parole officer.

On Wednesday, SIP responded after Mike's parole officer detected a strong odor of marijuana while conducting a compliance check of Mike's residence. Parole officers then searched the residence and found a significant amount of marijuana including some packed for sale, currency in low and high denominations stored in a cookie jar and food containers, and a number of firearms including a semi-automatic weapon.

SIP is a specialized unit within the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department that operates as a Community Reentry Collaborative. They primarily focus on high risk and at risk youth and adults.

The SIP collaborative is made up of sworn and civilian police personnel as well as numerous community supervision agencies including the Georgia Department of Corrections, Board of Pardons and Parole, Chatham County Juvenile Court and the Department of Juvenile Justice.

The SIP Community Reentry Collaborative works to provide intensive supervision and accountability, cognitive-behavioral training and employment soft skills training. The program utilizes the smart policing concept for pro-active policing within the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department.

Police Chief Willie Lovett says Wednesday's arrest is an example of the pro-active policing measures SIP employs.

"Savannah Impact Programs' role is to lead former offenders toward sustainable, legal independence," he said in a press release, "but we will always assure that those we are trying to help operate within the law."

SIP Director Terry Enoch says Wednesday's arrest is an example of how his agency helps to keep the community safe.

"I am proud of the work our Task Force officers conducted in this case," Enoch said in a press release. "Their pro-active policing measures removed guns and drugs off our streets to make our community safer."
