SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Five people are in custody after a three county wide methamphetamine ring was dismantled.

A joint operation between the Savannah-Chatham Counter Narcotics Team, Effingham County Sheriff's Office, Bryan County Sheriff's Office and the Richmond Hill Police Department uncovered a ring conspiring to manufacture and distribute methamphetamine throughout Chatham, Effingham, and Bryan Counties.

Five suspects were arrested in an operation lasting three days following the execution of a search warrant on Lewis Drive in Richmond Hill.

Travis Stacey and Hayley Anderson were arrested on Oct. 2 and charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute.

William Frank "Nitty" Davis and Amber Oliver were arrested the following day during a traffic stop. Davis and Oliver were charged with trafficking methamphetamine and possession of a controlled substance.

Davis and Oliver are also expected to be charged in Effingham County on various felonies, including conspiracy to violate the Georgia Controlled Substance Act and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Both Davis and Oliver were on felony probation for methamphetamine related charges at the time of arrest.

On Oct. 4, Roger "Dirty Dog" Lewis was arrested following a traffic stop. Lewis was charged with possession of a controlled substance and felony possession of marijuana.

Lewis is currently on parole for methamphetamine related charges.

More than two ounces of methamphetamine, a half pound of marijuana, numerous prescription pills and one firearm were seized during the course of the operation.

The seized drugs have an estimated street value of up to $6,000.
