SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The Chatham-Savannah Counter Narcotics Team dismantled a five-person drug distribution ring in Chatham County during a month long undercover investigation.

CNT Agents received information that two brothers, Fabian Notto and Frank Notto III, were selling controlled substances throughout Chatham County.

On Oct. 8, CNT Agents followed Fabian Notto. Agents made contact with Notto and his associate, Wesley Johnson.

After agents searched both men, they seized more than 100 grams of Bath Salts, nearly two ounces of marijuana and prescription pills. A search of Fabian Notto's residence in the 1900 block of Archer Street resulted in the seizure of $2,400 in U.S. currency.

Also on Oct. 8, undercover agents made arrangements to purchase "Molly", a pure form of ecstasy,  from Frank Notto. At the agreed upon location, undercover agents made contact with Barry Beaubien, an associate of Notto's, and the transaction was completed.

Beaubien was arrested on the scene following a brief foot chase. Seized in the operation was over one ounce of bath salts and a small amount of marijuana.

On Oct. 9 agents again made a drug purchase from a member of the organization. Charon Baxter was arrested for attempting to sell crack cocaine.

Authorities contacted Frank Notto later that evening and informed him that he was "wanted", after which Notto turned himself in to authorities.

A search of Frank Notto's residence located in the 100 block of Hamstead resulted in the seizure of bath salts.

At the conclusion of the operation, multiple ounces of bath salts, marijuana, prescription pills and nearly $3,000 in U.S. currency was seized, and the drugs seized had an estimated street value of up to $4,500.

Fabian Keith Notto, 42, was charged with possession of a controlled substance (bath salts) with intent to distribute and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.

Frank Notto III, 30, was charged with sale of a controlled substance (bath salts), use of a telecommunication device for criminal use, and violation of parole.

Wesley Eugene Johnson, 35, was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and violation of parole.

Barry Travis Beaubien, 26, was charged with sale of a controlled substance (bath salts), party to the crime sale of a controlled substance (bath salts), possession of marijuana and obstruction.
