SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Jonathan Jamall Anderson, 27, of Guyon, is in custody following an investigation conducted by the Chatham-Savannah Counter Narcotics Team.

Earlier this month, CNT and Savannah-Chatham Metro Police began investigating a suspect drug smuggler said to be brining in large amounts of cocaine to the Savannah-Chatham area. CNT Agents working undercover identified Anderson as the potential suspect.

On Feb. 7, CNT Agents confirmed Anderson was headed back to the Savannah-Chatham area from Atlanta on a Greyhound Bus. Authorities met Anderson at the bus station and found approximately nine ounces of cocaine in his possession. He was taken into custody and charged with trafficking cocaine.

Anderson is being held at the Chatham County Detention Center. He was denied bond Friday at his arraignment in Recorder's Court of Chatham County.

According to authorities, the cocaine that was seized has an estimated street value of up to $14,400.
