METTER, GA (WTOC) -

On May 1, the Metter Police Department along with law enforcement officers with the Candler County Sheriff's Office, Tri-Circuit Drug Task Force, Georgia Bureau of Investigation, and the US Postal Inspectors Office executed a search warrant at a residence on Lillian St. in Metter. Authorities executed the search warrant after they received information and citizen complaints concerning the distribution of marijuana from occupants of the residence.

Officers discovered quantities of marijuana and cocaine, which were packaged for distribution, during the search of the residence. Authorities also found a quantity of Molly, which is a designer drug that has similar effects as Ecstasy. Numerous prescription pills and a firearm were also discovered within the residence.

"I deeply appreciate the efforts of the law enforcement officers involved in this investigation to help make Metter a safer place. It is very important we continue to aggressively pursue these drug cases since they have a direct correlation with other crimes in our community," said Metter Police Chief Dennis Nelson in  a press release.
